CSM Training and Certification FAQs

Certified Scrum Master

A Certified ScrumMaster® is a professional designated by Scrum Alliance as a Scrum practitioner who can skillfully lead project teams. A Scrum Master can be considered as a Servant Leader who removes impediments and ensures team success.

Being a Scrum Master, the primary role is to keep the team on track to deliver quality products and services as early as possible. Let’s see more roles and responsibilities of the Scrum Master:

  • Act as a facilitator and servant leader who encourages self-organization
  • Remove obstacles so that the team can focus more on work and follow practices of Scrum
  • Protect the team from internal and external distractions
  • Ensure a good relationship between the product owner and the team along with the members outside the team
  • Set up an environment where the team can perform more effectively
  • Manage the scrum process in coordination with the scrum team
  • Conduct retrospective meetings
  • Address team progress

Scrum framework emphasizes on teamwork, communications, and speed to deliver complex projects. According to a study conducted by McKinsey in conjunction with the University of Oxford in 5400 IT companies, they had an overspend of 45% on the budget because of project overrun. CSM certification declares you as a Scrum expert who can avoid those shortfalls and enhance the chances of accomplishing your projects successfully within a timeline. 

A Certified ScrumMaster® (CSM) has been taught by a Certified Scrum Trainer (CST) the Scrum terminology, practices, and principles that will enable him or her to act as a Scrum Master or Scrum team member. This credential is a first step on the Agile path. To become a true, practicing Scrum professional requires enough experience and continuing education.

No, there is no such online/virtual course for CSM. Because Scrum Alliance strongly believes that understanding Scrum requires a personal interaction which is not possible through the training delivered in the virtual environment. 

With this 2-year membership with Scrum Alliance, you can join several local user groups, online social networks, obtain access to deep discounts on meetings, and additional member-only resources. Additionally, CSMs can use a specially designed logo to spotlight their credentials.

Scrum, an Agile framework that had its origins in the programming and IT industry over 10 years back, has been picking up force in recent years. Based on the 2017-2018 State of Scrum report by Scrum Alliance, 63% of the respondents are experiencing the success of implementing the Scrum framework for delivering the projects successfully.

Moreover, ScrumMaster certifications are value add-ons to your resume that can help you to get placed in leading Agile organizations.

    James Smith

    CSD, CSPO, CSM

    James Smith first experienced the power of Scrum during a most dramatic of corporate turnarounds. Holding a very painful client-facing position and tiring of having nothing but bad news to communicate to his clients over and over again, a new job search had begun. Then Scrum took seed.

    In an incredibly short time, Monday mornings were once again something to look forward to and not to dread. Clients soon began requesting that they slow down their pace; they were overwhelming their IT departments with new features. Life for everyone in the corporation, and for those to whom they came home at night, got much better.

    Moving into the ScrumMaster role and being part of the many successful releases delivered to our clients has been an extremely gratifying part of the past years.

    He feels that Scrum when properly implemented makes life better for all involved. And at the end of the day, that is a very good thing of which to be a part.

    As a trainer, mentor and advisor, he has been honored with the opportunity to bring the spirit and techniques of Scrum with multiple training engagements for organizations like Sony, Boeing, HP and the US Department of Defense.

    James holds several qualifications and certifications; he is Six Sigma Certified, a Certified ScrumMaster, Product Owner and Trainer and holds an MBA from Northwestern's Kellogg School of Management.
