Product Description

Transitioning into Agile Project Management and Digital Delivery professional space became a prominent trend across industries over the past 5 years. Competitive job market is becoming saturated with candidates who do not fully understand how modern recruitment for Agile roles works - at least in Australia.

They present their professional Resumes filled with mixed messages, absurd qualifications, using language that only sends their job application straight into the bin, missing out on opportunities that otherwise should be within their reach.

Lack of this specific knowledge is reducing your chances of getting hired as a Scrum Master, or for any other job within Agile Delivery space.

Written primarily for aspiring professionals who want to enter the world of Agile Project Management and Digital Delivery, but lack the right knowledge or specific insights yet, this book is an attempt to share my personal findings and summarize research made as part of becoming a Professional Scrum Master.

This includes plenty of my subjective yet educated opinions on a number of topics surrounding general theme of presenting yourself as the most appealing Agile job candidate, providing advice on how to capitalize on your current professional background, understanding your skill gaps and available options, pivoting towards a Scrum Master role within Agile Digital Delivery as efficiently as possible.
