What is Scrum?

Software Professionals all over the world are passionate about Scrum. However, Scrum is not hype in IT industry. Scrum is an Agile Project Management Framework to develop great products that customers love.

Scrum?..s powerful and astonishing influence on people and projects take its roots from the Manifesto of Agile Software Development (Agile Manifesto) which values:

Individuals and Interactions over processes and tools,
Working Software over comprehensive documentation,
Customer Collaboration over contract negotiation,
Responding to Change over following a plan?.?

Why Certified Scrum Master (CSM)®?

According to the latest data, the annual salary of a ScrumMaster now surpasses that of a Project Manager.
Even more surprising, is just how quickly the ScrumMaster salaries have increased in such a short amount of time. As you may remember, I performed similar job research in Oct 2009 when the ScrumMaster role pulled in around $88,000 a year.
ScrumMasters now make on average $95,000 a year, which is a $7,000 increase.

On the other hand, Project Manager Salaries seem to have become stagnant, showing no visible signs of improvement. Even the ambiguous Agile Project Manager salary seems to have hit a glass ceiling. With the Scrum Master in such high demand, can we expect these salaries to sustain this sort of growth in an economy that may be dipping into yet another recession?
