Why do you need a CSM? Read the ZDNet article on it

A Certified ScrumMaster® (“CSM”) helps project teams properly use Scrum to increase the potential of the project's success. CSMs understand Scrum values, practices, and applications, and provide a level of knowledge and expertise above and beyond that of typical project managers. They act as "servant leaders," helping the rest of the Scrum team work together and learn the Scrum framework. CSMs also protect the team from both internal and external distractions. By earning a Certified ScrumMaster® certification you will:

  • Expand your career opportunities by staying relevant and marketable across more and more industries adopting Agile Scrum practices.

  • Demonstrate to employers and peers core Scrum knowledge and skills.

  • Learn the foundation of Scrum and the scope of the Certified ScrumMaster’s role from its very best minds.

  • Engage with a community of recognized Scrum experts who are committed to continuous improvement.

This 2-day workshop includes all requirements, materials and testing fees to sit for the CSM exam!
