Why should Microsoft Business Apps builders get certified in Scrum?
There are nearly 30 Microsoft certifications available in Dynamics 365 and the Power Platform. Double that if you include Azure. Achieving a couple of Microsoft certifications is important for your career as a Microsoft Business Applications professional, especially if you work for a Microsoft partner.
But pursing all the badges like you're trying to fill the shirt sleeve on a Scout shirt, won't help you stand out. Here are four reasons why a Scrum certification makes sense for everyone involved in Microsoft Business Apps.
Microsoft certifications are technical and don't show off that you can work as part of a high-performing team, which is what every hiring manager is looking for.
The Professional Scrum Master I certification from Scrum.org is the perfect Scrum fundamentals certification because shows you understand the basics, you can get certified without taking an expensive two-day class, and it never expires.
More Microsoft customers than ever before are expecting an agile approach: short iterations, rapid feedback, cross-functional teams. In response, Microsoft partners are recruiting people like you who have a Scrum certification.
Working in a self-managing, cross-functional team is a lot more fun that being assigned tasks in a death march waterfall project. Adopt Scrum and you'll have the time of your life at work.
