(That’s right, you’ll get trained by the same coaches who work with executives and teams at Google, Bosch, Saab, and 3M).

Our training is informed by the latest research and thinking based on current, real-world experience.

(We’re not just coaches and trainers, we practice Scrum-- across the globe, across industries, and if Scrum teams at Blue Origin have their way, across the solar system.)

certified scrum master tm scrum allianceOur two-day Certified Scrum Master training will prepare you to take and pass the Scrum Alliance certification test. You’ll be introduced to the Scrum framework and explore the Scrum Master role in detail.

Be in demand, paid well, and extremely satisfied with your job

On any given week, a search on, SimplyHired or Linkedin will return 10,000+ jobs requiring Scrum knowledge and experience.

Demand is rising across the country. But, the rise in demand is not limited to the United States. Demand for employees with scrum know-how is on the rise around the globe. Our friends and partners across Europe, Asia, South America, Australia and New Zealand report that they’re in high-demand too.

It’s no secret that Certified Scrum Masters are paid well too. A search on Glassdoor shows that Certified Scrum Masters in the U.S. make an average of $91,440.00. The most seasoned CSMs can make well into the six figure range in the U.S.

Pay is important but, it isn’t everything. How satisfied are Certified Scrum Masters? A PayScale survey of 1,041 CSMs shows that Certified Scrum Master are Extremely Satisfied with their job. Sounds good to me. How about you?

Now the question is: how do you position yourself to command top dollar and help your company blow away the competition? We think it starts with getting the best training possible.
