From the hiring kit’s introduction:
According to research by Zippia, at least 71% of companies in the United States are now using the agile methodology for their software development. Agile software development is used so predominantly because it works better than other methodologies. However, this is only true if your personnel buy into agile principles.
From a personnel perspective, the key driving engine for any agile development project is the Scrum Master. While this position requires an individual with extensive experience in software development, there is more to consider. Scrum Masters must be able to see both the big goal and the small individual tasks that get to the goal. They must coordinate activity amongst various teams, each having various skill levels and development tools at their disposal.
