Scrum training and certification fulfills the vision of the Agile manifesto by fostering greater collaboration, productivity, and success among team members. Certified ScrumMaster® (CSM) certification is a globally accepted Scrum certification offered by Scrum Alliance to professionals who clear the CSM certification exam.

A Certified ScrumMaster® helps project teams properly use Scrum, increasing the likelihood of the project's overall success. CSMs understand Scrum values, practices, and applications and provide a level of knowledge and expertise above and beyond that of typical project managers. CSMs 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.
