This guide book provides a single, comprehensive source of information on how to pass the Certified Scrum Master (R) Assessment of Scrum Alliance (R). This information includes relevant details on the Certification/Assessment, a strategy to prepare for and take the assessment, and finally, adequate study material for the assessment itself. The only purpose of this book is to provide a focused approach to help achieve the audience’s focused objective: attain Scrum Master Credential at the minimum cost and time. It does not seek to provide an adequate background on Agile methodologies, or a complete description of Scrum principles and practices. The focus is on providing just as much information is required; just in time. At present, there are two popular organizations providing different types and levels of role-based Scrum credentials: Scrum Alliance (R), and Scrum.org. The CSM (R) credential of Scrum Alliance is the most popular Scrum Master credential today, but acceptance of the PSM credentials (of Scrum.org) is rapidly growing. This book covers CSM (R) requirements in detail, while giving an adequate exposure to the PSM credential/assessment as well. This book is part of series, aimed at providing enough information and knowledge to pass the CSM (R) and/or PSM I Assessments. This book series has been developed primarily from my own experience, taking into account what was most important while preparing for the assessments, as well as while actually taking the assessments. A continual endeavor will be made to enhance to coverage and effectiveness of the content. While this book series is aimed at those interested in Scrum Master Certification, it will be useful for other certification aspirants – Product Owners, Developers – since it provides quite an extensive coverage of Scrum Fundamentals, common to these roles.
