Why should you go for a CSM certification?

A Certified Scrum Master can wear multiple hats as an Operations Manager, Director of Operations or a Chief Financial Officer. Scrum masters who have completed the certification can act as a project lead and facilitate the agile methodology for teams across the organisation. The person would also be responsible for arranging the Scrum meetings and Sprint planning sessions. A Certified Scrum Master works with several people, including engineers, project managers, supply chain personnel, and logistics employees. You can become a Certified Scrum Master by enrolling for the CSM certification in Delhi which will give you hands-on experience on all the nuances of the Scrum framework.

The value of an organisation or a team can be significantly improved with the addition of a certified scrum professional. If they are up to the mark, then they integrate themselves with the teams they are working with. A Scrum Master Certification training in Delhi will enable an individual to learn how to be an essential and indispensable addition to any organisation either already operating through agile methodologies or looking to shunt itself into one.

According to a survey carried out by Scrum Alliance, nearly 85% agreed that Scrum improves work life and certification improves the overall practice. Nearly 97% said that they would continue to use Scrum in their professional careers.

Likened to a time when reluctance to use computers would close down companies, Scrum is quite similar and is necessary for organisations to evolve into the digital age where learning is considered more important than knowing.

The certification value has two main advantages to it:

Value to Individuals

  • Professional credibility- With the Scrum Certification in Delhi reduce the risk you pose to a team operating in an agile manner and integrate seamlessly with the workflow.
  • Personal satisfaction- Assure yourself of the fact that you are well ahead of the game with a nuanced and unique skill-set.
  • Salary- Increase your pay with a CSM certification training in Delhi and experience healthy growth in your career.
  • Job search- Enhance your eligibility across portfolios and land interviews at a much faster rate than your non-certified peers.
  • Professional growth- By certifying yourself, you will be transferring the risk of your skills being outdated and grow across the organisation with leaps and bounds.

Value to Organisations

Most of the time, the value addition of a Certified Scrum Master can be manifold and can be applied to not just IT industries, non-IT industries as well. This gives a certain amount of flexibility to organisations moving to an agile work environment like:

  • Job essentials- Stay ahead of the curve and pioneer agile transformations across the organisation by guiding team members.
  • Filling skills gaps- Redesign the workflows in the company with the CSM training in Delhi and ensure quality control across the company and its products.
  • Improving peer engagement: Structured interaction within a team and among the peers can translate into effective work progress and better customer satisfaction. The Scrum Certification in Delhi enables you to get your team on the same page.
  • Stay relevant- Nowadays certain IT giants would work only with organisations which follow an agile methodology to ensure smooth flow of projects. A Certified Scrum Master ensures that your practices are relevant in the shifting dynamics of the IT industry.

Today, organizations across various industries choose to implement the Scrum framework in their enterprises, as it facilitates enterprises to manage and implement Scrum methodology with minimal resources. A CSM certification from any Global REP (Registered Education Provider) helps improve your visibility in the industry.

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.

There is no such online/virtual course for CSM. According to the Scrum Alliance, it requires a personal interaction at the highest level which is impossible to deliver in the virtual environment.

Through this membership with Scrum Alliance, you can join local user groups, online social networks, procure access to deep discounts on gatherings, and additional member-only resources. In addition, Certified Scrum Masters can use a specially designed logo to mark their credentials.

According to Scrum Alliance, a Certified Scrum Master course helps to increase the likelihood of a project’s overall success by applying Scrum principles and techniques. By understanding the values, practices, and applications, you can act as a ‘servant leader’ rising above and beyond an average project manager and helping your organization achieve meaningful goals.

Scrum, a type of Agile framework that originated in the software and IT industry more than a decade ago, has been gaining momentum in creating innovation and facilitating disruptions. According to State of Scrum latest survey, Agile and Scrum practitioners have started experiencing the following benefits after implementing Scrum in their organizations:

  • 85% Scrum continues to improve the quality of work life
  • 71% Delivering value to the customer is the outcome most valued by executives
  • 81% Certification improves practice
  • 97% will continue to use Scrum in the future

For organizations facing challenges in implementing the Scrum framework for the first time, a Certified ScrumMaster can act as a guiding force in making a smooth Agile transition. After the Scrum Master certification, an individual can opt for the positions like  Business Analyst, Lead Software, Engineer, Project Manager, Information Technology, Staff Scrum Master, Delivery Lead, Agile, Scrum Master, Technical Program Manager, Senior Project Manager, Agile Coach, QA Automation Engineer, Software Project Lead in IT or non-IT companies.

Our CSM training will provide you with several opportunities to take your professional career in the right direction. Also, this training helps you get a high-paying job in Agile organizations.

Based on the research conducted with 601 developers and IT professionals by HP Enterprise- “two-thirds (66%) of the participants depicted their organizations as either Pure Agile or Leaning

towards Agile. On the other side, only 9% of the organizations described themselves as pure Waterfall or Leaning toward the traditional (Waterfall) approach.”

CSM Certification Exam

CSM is an open-book exam and it is easy to pass the CSM exam. Instead of just passing the Scrum Master certification exam, the activity sessions in the training help in acquiring practical knowledge on Scrum which is pivotal to understanding the Scrum framework.

One important thing to remember before thinking of CSM exam is that you are allowed to take the exam only after successful completion of the course. The Scrum Master certification exam is an online test consisting of 50 multiple choice questions. You are given 60 minutes to complete the CSM test and obtain the certification.

The Scrum Alliance CSM certification exam fee is included in the Certified ScrumMaster training cost.

After that, you will be charged an extra amount of  $25 starting from the third attempt. Also, it is recommended to retake the course if you fail the exam for the third time.

The accreditation body of Certified ScrumMaster course is Scrum Alliance and its exam fee is non-refundable.
