Professional Scrum Master Certification (PSM® I)
The Professional Scrum Master® (PSM® I) Certification from Scrum.Org is one of the most valuable agile certifications in the market. The Scrum.org Institute was founded by Ken Schwaber, an Agile pioneer and agile manifesto signatory, as well as cofounder of Scrum.
Being certified as PSM I demonstrates agile and scrum knowledge better than any other certificate. It is a valuable addition to a professional’s resumes that hightens clients' trust and confidence in the effective management of agile projects. The Professional Scrum Master (PSM) assessments allow professionals to validate their understanding of agile and Scrum practices and values, and their ability to react to challenging situations.
The greater the depth and extent of knowledge needed to earn a certificate, the greater its value. By this measure, the PSM assessments are significantly more valuable than available alternatives for Scrum.
Microsoft® uses the PSM I assessment to validate knowledge as part of its Silver and Gold Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) competencies.
