CSM Training and Certification FAQs

Certified Scrum Master

A Certified ScrumMaster® is a certification offered by Scrum Alliance. Being a Certified ScrumMaster® (CSM®), you can assist the Scrum team to perform at the highest level. A Scrum Master is not a project leader or a project manager but rather can be called a Servant Leader who assists the team to succeed with the Scrum framework. 

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

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.

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 understanding of Scrum requires a personal interaction at the highest level which cannot be delivered in a virtual/online environment.

With this 2-year membership with Scrum Alliance, you can reach out to the local user groups and online social networks, get discounts on meetings, and enjoy additional member-only resources. Additionally, CSMs can use 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.

The Scrum Master role has been gaining lots of popularity in recent years. According to Glassdoor’s 2018 salary report, Scrum Master is one of the highest paying jobs, ranking at number 20 with an average salary of $98,239.  It has mounted two positions up as compared to the 2017 Glassdoor report.

Scrum framework is simple to learn but difficult to implement. The organizations implementing Scrum for the first time, require the presence of a skilled Scrum Master on a team. Being a Certified ScrumMaster, an individual can play the role of a 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, etc.

The ScrumMaster certification is a great opportunity for the individuals who are seeking to accomplish success in their career along with the professionals who are looking for a job change in an Agile based environment. Take this certification to see yourself at the highest peak in your career.

When it comes to choosing Scrum for a project, more than 65% of the corporates agree that delivering quality to the customer is their highest priority followed by the flexibility and responsiveness as the secondary priorities. Due to the increasing popularity of Agile, companies are hiring more Scrum Masters, offering plenty of job opportunities in the organizations.

Attended Certified ScrumMaster®(CSM) workshop in April 2018

The course was well-structured and nicely spread across the two days. Day 1 focused on the "What" and "Why" of Scrum. On Day 2, the trainer shared useful examples from his past experiences and focused on the "How" aspects of Scrum. The trainer was a long-term Agile practitioner and was able to provide useful real-life insights on what works and what doesn't. We did several some group simulations on how to run an agile project.  The class was a good mix of trainees from different experiences and backgrounds.
