I am a Scrum Master. What’s next?

One frequent question that I often get from candidates that I train. Venkatesh, what is the career path of a Scrum Master? I am a Scrum Master now. How can I build my career to the next level? Even though I don’t believe in calling out that the Scrum Mastery is done, I tried to give recommendations based on my experience.

Team Coaching

The team coaching process helps connect the overall efforts and intellect to reach a mutual target or goal. Under VUCA circumstances, the management processes are adapting to the coaching methods to strengthen the team members. We have assisted 100s of teams through our productive journey to design career courses for the team coaches. If you pick team coaching, you help the team and the leaders through consulting, coaching, and skills training. The foundation of these methods develops from years of experience with executive leaders, organisational transformation, and teams in concern.
