CSM Training and Certification FAQs

Certified Scrum Master

A Certified ScrumMaster® is a designation offered by Scrum Alliance, a globally acknowledged certifying body for Scrum. A Scrum Master facilitates the Agile development team. Also, a Scrum Master manages the end-to-end processes involved in Agile project management.

As a Scrum Master, your primary role is to keep the team on track to deliver as soon as possible. Let’s see 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

The popularity of the Scrum framework is rising day-by-day. A survey conducted by McKinsey in collaboration with the University of Oxford  in around 5,400 companies showed that large IT projects run “45 percent over budget and 7 percent over time, while delivering 56 percent less value than predicted.” By earning a CSM certification you can learn the Scrum terminology, practices, and principles that will enable you to fulfill the role of a ScrumMaster or a Scrum team member, and create increased project success in all these parameters.

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 online/virtual course for CSM, as the Scrum Alliance believes that the Scrum understanding needs communication with the individuals attending the course which cannot be delivered in a virtual/online environment.

With this membership, you can join local user groups, online social networks, gain access to deep discounts on gatherings, and additional member-only resources. Additionally, Certified ScrumMasters can make use of a specially designed logo to showcase 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 is one of the most popular Agile frameworks with 56% of the users using Scrum, as surveyed by VersionOne’s State of Agile report. LinkedIn also included Scrum Master in the Most Promising jobs list of 2019 and Agile and Scrum are the most in-demand skills required to get a job in your dream company.

After the CSM certification, an individual can get rewarding job opportunities as 63% of the respondents are experiencing the success of implementing Scrum framework to deliver high quality products. A certified individual can efficiently take on designations 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 today’s technology age, job opportunities are continuously increasing in number which in turn rising the demand for professionals and skilled Scrum Masters. Certification is the best way to convince the employers that they are offering the role to the right candidate. Our CSM training will increase your visibility to potential employers.

Increasing numbers of companies have started embracing Agile methodology, 15 years after its first beginnings in the software development space.

The latest State of Scrum report says that nearly 85% of their recent survey respondents have taken up Scrum Master certification and a whopping 63% success rate of Scrum projects proves the claim.

I attended the CSM Training organized by Knowledgehut. The trainer was an expert on the subject and was able to clarify the doubts with several examples. Classroom training and the training material provided are pretty decent and I believe they will be helpful for future reference also. The customer support team was also very helpful and was available on call whenever I called them. I would highly recommend to go for Knowledgehut for CSM training and certification.
