Certified Scrum Master Exam

by Kelly Waters, 26 October 2009

Certified Scrum Master ExamI’ve blogged before about Certified Scrum Master (CSM) status, and how I think Scrum Master Certification isn’t worth the paper it’s written on!

I’m not against CSM training. In fact I’d heartily recommend it to anyone. The Certified Scrum Trainer process is pretty rigourous, ensuring the quality of the trainers.

It’s the terms ‘Certified’ and ‘Master’ I have a problem with, when all that’s required to be labelled as a Certified Scrum Master is attendance on a 2 day course.

However, I’m really pleased to say that the Scrum Alliance has taken the first step towards putting that problem right, with the announcement of a Certified Scrum Master exam being introduced from 1st October 2009.

Credit to Scrum Alliance for listening and acting on feedback from the agile community. It’s definitely a step in the right direction…
