USA Batches Feedback

I recently attended the class with Amit for the CSM certification and I highly recommend it. It was very productive, efficient, practical and with a fresh outlook to the Agile framework and Scrum Values!!!

Giselle Montalbano, CSM and CSPO Participant May 2020

Product Owner at The Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC)

I attended Amit’s Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) course. He’s an excellent course facilitator and trainer: knowledgeable (doesn’t rely on power point), highly engaging and extremely supportive. I enthusiastically recommend his course for aspiring Scrum professional. The course was very affordable as well.

Joshua Wilder, CSPO May 2020

Technical Program Manager, New York Area, Federal Home Loan Bank of New York

I thought my CSM was going to be just “tick in the box”, only focusing on the exam and certification. And I was sceptical about having a training via zoom (Covid-19) including the timezone difference. But to my surprise this turned out to be one of my best trainings ever. Amit has an astonishing CV and his experience and teaching skills forced me to finally understand scrum and agile basics. His examples were spot on. I cannot wait for my next course with Amit.”

More about Scrum:

In November 2020, new Scrum Guide was released. There are many changes done to Scrum Guide Like

  • Focus of Scrum changed from being a “process framework” to being a “individuals and interactions” focus.
  • Ambiguity with the Development Team and Scrum Team removed.

We have tried to capture all these changes through our Blog. Read Here.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Scrum Alliance?

Scrum Alliance

Founded in 2001, Scrum Alliance is a 20+ year and the first Scrum/Agile certification body in the world. Scrum Alliance is the largest, most established and influential professional membership and certification organization in the Agile community. Scrum Alliance has certified more than 750,000 practitioners worldwide. Scrum Alliance vision is to “Transform the World of Work” with a mission to guide and inspire individuals, leaders, and organizations with practices, principles, and values that create workplaces that are joyful, prosperous, and sustainable.

Why Scrum Alliance certificates?

Scrum Alliance is a 20+ year and the first Scrum/Agile certification body in the world. Scrum Alliance trainers are approved only after rigorous approval process. Scrum Alliance trainers go through about 4-5 years of mentoring before they are allowed to do Scrum Alliance certifications. Therefore the Scrum Alliance trainers and some of the best trainers in the world. Most are authors, writers, thinkers and successful corporate individuals.

There are many duplicate certificates which have piggy-backed on the Scrum Alliance name and created replicas with change of a character in CSM or CSPO (like replacing Certified with Professional or with Licensed or with Registered). DO NOT waste time and money on duplicate certificates since they are not recognized by most organizations.

Why is Scrum Alliance CSM - CSPO Certifications the most valuable certificate in the world ?

Scrum Alliance Certificates are given by Certified Scrum Trainers (CSTs). CSTs are highly qualified and some of the best trainers in the world. There are only 220 odd CSTs in the world and only 12 CSTs in India.

The reason there are so less CSTs is because, CST is highly qualified individual and you need to be best-of-the-best in the world to become a CST. CSTs have good industry experience and are certified to be trainers after a lot of scrutiny. The Training given by a CST is authentic. Organizations recognize the importance of EXPERTISE.

Most organizations know that getting trained from a Certified Scrum Trainer (CST) ensures that the one who is trained has authentic knowledge about the Scrum and Agile.

Getting trainined from Scrum Alliance certified CST ensures that Certified Scrum Master or Certified Scrum Product Owner has approriate level of knowledge and skills to work on a Scrum Project.

What is the difference between CSM and CSPO? Are they more or less same?

NO. CSM is about Scrum Framework which is a process framework for execution purposes for solving complex problems. CSPO is about product development to take the product from high level to low level so that Scrum can solve the business problem.

Basically, CSM workshop starts with an assumption that there is a product backlog (requirements list) already there good enough to execute it… CSPO workshop ends at a time when the Product Backlog gets ready to execute.

What should I do first? CSM or CSPO?

While there is no prerequisite, our professional advice (based on views of experienced trainers and professionals such as Amit, Gaurav and Snehamayee) is that you should do CSM first. CSM makes it easy to understand CSPO since there is hardly any coverage of Scrum in CSPO. It is an assumption in CSPO that you already know Scrum.

Is CSM applicable to the non-IT industry?

Scrum is the most famous Agile framework. Scrum has already been used in Automobiles, Research, Education, Pharma, Manufacturing, Banking, etc. It is a way of doing or executing things. CSM can be used by non-IT industries as well.

Are there any prerequisites for CSM and CSPO certification?

There is no prerequisite of any other certification or experience years to attend CSM Training or Certification / CSPO Training or Certification

You cannot take CSM certification online exam without attending the Scrum Master Class. It is mandatory to attend 2-day Scrum Master training from a Scrum Alliance Certified Scrum Trainer(CST) to be eligible to appear for the CSM certification online exam.
