-What is CSM - Certified Scrum Master Certification?
Certified Scrum Master - CSM Certification is...
Certified Scrum Master, abbreviated as CSM, is the scrum master certification awarded by Scrum Alliance. People who have attended a two-day CSM course instructed by a Scrum Alliance CST and passed CSM exam, achieving certification, demonstrate a fundamental level of Scrum mastery.
CSM certificate holders prove that they understand Scrum as described in the Scrum Guide and how to apply Scrum in Scrum Teams. CSM certification holders have a consistent terminology and approach to Scrum.
In the waterfall project management, requirements are gathered, scope documents are generated, approval of the customer is acquired, the project team starts to work on the project and after months of progress, the customer could see the outcomes of the project.
However, harsh competition in the market and especially shorter product lifecycles make waterfall project management methodologies impossible to adapt. Because, when an organization is developing a product or a new feature for an existing product, its rival might come out with a new product and the organization must adapt itself with these changing requirements rapidly which is not easy in waterfall project management methodologies.
In Agile Project Management, the product is evolved with small increments and new features added step-by-step throughout the project. This enables the customer to see the developing product and make alterations in the requirements earlier when needed.
Emerging practices of Agile Project Management made Scrum certifications, such as Certified Scrum Master certification, valuable in the agile job market. Since the 2000s, every organization is trying to change its practices to become an "Agile" organization. This makes agile certifications, as well as CSM certification, vital in various industries.More
