As documented by Sameer Gupta.
I saw the need for Agile management skills first-hand while working as an IT project manager at TCS. I worked in systems integration and estimated project timelines and costs. Projects kept getting delayed, and we did not have a mechanism to speed things up. That was when I decided to pursue the ASM® certification.
I knew about the Agile methodology, but only theoretically. I lacked practical experience. I began researching project management courses. I had positive experiences taking courses from Simplilearn in the past: Prince2® Foundation and Practitioner Certification Training and ITIL® Intermediate ST Certification Training. Simplilearn provides an option to compare classes, and I looked at ASM and Certified ScrumMaster (CSM®). I compared the benefits and differences and decided on Agile Scrum Master (ASM).
My Learning Journey With Simplilearn
The course was excellent. The instructors understood what students needed to learn, anticipated what questions they might ask, and shared real-life examples. There were plenty of references provided for further study.
To pursue my full-time job and take courses through Simplilearn, I practiced time management. I divided the course into various modules and finished one module per week. At the end of each week, I took online mock tests to test my skills.
When I completed the course, I scheduled a practice exam with Simplilearn so that I could take the actual ASM exam with confidence. Mock tests on Simplilearn’s website helped me evaluate my preparation and track my progress. This feature was a game-changer.
