Scrum Master - Lean Champion Certification


About MSI's Scrum Master Certification

You want to be a project manager, but what type of project will you be asked to lead?  Now you can be prepared for ANY project, whether it uses Agile, Scrum, Lean, or Six Sigma.  SM-LCC certified professionals can lead any project to success because they have the key skills to manage a multitude of different scenarios.

The Management and Strategy Institute’s innovative Scrum Master Certification covers a lot more than just Scrum.  That’s because businesses today use many different project management tools simultaneously to improve their organizations.  One week you could be a Scrum Master, leading sequential sprints for business development.  The next week you could be a Six Sigma Champion, coordinating between company stakeholders and a Six Sigma Black Belt.

Whatever the scenario, you’ll be prepared when you achieve the Scrum Master – Lean Champion Certified (SM-LCC) from MSI.

Scrum Master - Lean Champion Certification (SM-LCC)™

MSI set out to design a completely new project management certification.  One that addressed the Scrum Master role but also prepares the recipient to lead other types of projects.  The simple fact is that most organizations today combine different methods to achieve the best outcome.

Many positions within a project can overlap, and that’s especially true between the roles of Scrum Master and Six Sigma Champion.  Until now, if you wanted to understand project leadership, you needed many different certifications, including Agile, Scrum, Scrum Master, Lean, Champion, and Six Sigma.

MSI has combined the most important elements of Agile, Scrum, and Lean Six Sigma into one advanced certification. You’ll learn to lead projects from multiple disciplines and help your organization provide new products and services.
