Advanced Certified ScrumMaster (A-CSM)

Take the Next Step in Your Scrum Master Journey

As a Certified ScrumMaster® (CSM®), you’ve been introduced to Scrum values, practices, and applications. You now understand how to provide a level of knowledge and expertise above and beyond that of typical project managers.

Becoming Agile is a lifelong journey. Incorporating Scrum values and Agile principles into your world of work takes diligence, patience, and a commitment to continuous improvement.

To further enhance your knowledge and skills, the next step is achieving an Advanced Certified ScrumMaster® (A-CSM®) certification from Scrum Alliance®. Our advanced offering is ideal for a Certified ScrumMaster who has one or more years of work experience in that role.

Through the A-CSM course you will learn how to:
  • Facilitate dialogue between the Product Owner, team members, customers, stakeholders, and executives.
  • Respond confidently when encountering resistance to change, lack of engagement, low motivation, and unavailability of key people.
  • Help your company adopt Scrum and support executives committed to Agile values and principles.
  • Remove impediments to enable long-term, deep adoption of Scrum and Agile practices by all parts of the business.
  • Explain the value of Scrum and Agile approaches to skeptics.
  • Increase developer engagement to encourage greater accountability, commitment, and buy-in.
  • Extend the impact of Scrum throughout the organization.
  • Scale Scrum and Agile beyond a single team.
  • Leverage your learning to gain recognition as the Agile expert in your company or location.
Most importantly, by receiving the A-CSM certification, you will improve your implementation of Scrum in the workplace and keep your team on the right track.

What are the other benefits of an Advanced ScrumMaster certification?
  • A focus on implementation - The A-CSM program is designed to build on your foundational knowledge with enhanced skills for the implementation of Scrum and Agile techniques within your company and teams.
  • Distinguish yourself in the global marketplace - Our Certified Scrum Trainers and Certified Enterprise Coaches have trained and coached Scrum to over 600,000 people around the globe. The new A-CSM certification provides an opportunity to take the next step and stand out among the global Scrum community.
  • Stand out in your industry - As a member of the Scrum Alliance globally recognized community, you show your employer (or potential employer) your potential as a highly valued professional.
