I have a background in healthcare and love tech (I’ve partnered with various dev teams to create healthcare based apps and software) - I’m finding that I’m loving the tech side more than the actual practice of medicine. So I signed up for the Scrum Master course and loved it! But…
I am a bit nervous to get into doing scrum work because of my lack of experience in tech - ie lingo, technical knowledge base, etc.
I was told that the typical way to start out is to do contract work as a Scrum Master, but I’m a bit worried to just jump into it. I just don’t want to shoot myself in the foot by being unprepared and don’t want to wing it - however, I do understand from the course about Empirical Process in Scrum…learning from experience.
Any tips or suggestions on how to be more “prepared” before my first scrum role or just jump into it and make the mistakes and gain the experience? Also, how forgiving are teams/companies with new Scrum Masters new(ish) to tech?
