Journey of Certified Scrum Master Professional


CSM Training and Certification FAQs

Certified Scrum Master

A Certified ScrumMaster® is a professional who is certified to lead the project teams effectively. The Scrum Master is considered to be a team facilitator rather than a project manager, as he/she facilitates the daily tasks for the team members.

Here are the 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

Following are the most important skills that every Scrum Master should have:      

  • Problem-solving:  The main skill that the Scrum Master should have is the ability to handle various complex situations during product development.
  • Lean thinking: As a Scrum Master he must be able to identify wasteful processes and should be able to create a lean approach.
  • Facilitation ability: The Scrum Master facilitates the Scrum events for team members and removes all impediments to the progress of the project.
  • Coaching:  As a Scrum Master he should be able to guide the Team members and coach them to follow Scrum principles properly.

Scrum is a simple framework that focuses on the teamwork, communications, and speed to deliver complex projects. According to the McKinsey report, 5,400 IT projects overspend 45% on the projects because of projects overrun. Having a CSM certification declares you as a Scrum expert and you can avoid those shortfalls and boost the chances of accomplishing your projects successfully within a stipulated time. 

The Scrum Master role is charged to lead a Scrum team inside the organization. The primary role of the Scrum Master is to make sure that the Scrum framework is followed by the team. Given below is a list of various Scrum Master certifications for the Scrum Masters in the form of a table:

Once the exam is complete, you will be asked to accept a license agreement and set up your online profile. It could take up to two weeks after course completion to receive your welcome email.

The individuals can take the online test from any computer anywhere in the world, according to their comfort (home, work, or other location). The test will not be proctored.

Scrum Alliance always strives to maintain the quality and relevance of the CSM certification by validating the best practices in the Agile industry from active practitioners in the field. The CSM curriculum incorporates the best in current knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary to earn the CSM certification.  As such, the Scrum Alliance believes in involving their community to validate what is important in the role of the Scrum Master and then updates the tests to reflect these key areas.

If you choose English as your exam language, you will be able to switch to a newer version as the new test has recently got published. If you choose a different language then you may take the older version till that specific language gets published. Furthermore, according to the Scrum Alliance, the tests will be launched in other languages in the coming months, as soon as they inspect and adapt to the launch of the English version.

You will find the test blueprint at the bottom of the CSM page under ‘Resources’, on the Scrum Alliance website. This test blueprint covers the stipulated percentage of questions from each domain. The test blueprint is aligned with the latest version of 2018 LOs. Moreover, the 2018 CSM LOs matches with the November 2017 Scrum Guide. The current LOs can be found on the Scrum Alliance CSM certification webpage and also on ‘Trainer and Coach dashboards’ under “Resources”.

If you've already passed the CSM test, you will not be able to take it again to receive a better score. Your test score is only available to you. Nobody else will be able to see your score on the CSM test.
