Frequently Asked Questions
What’s the difference between the LSM/LSPO and the CSM/CSPO?
Licensed Scrum credentials are the only Scrum Master and Product Owner credentials endorsed by Scrum Inc. and Dr. Jeff Sutherland, the co-creator of Scrum and inventor of Scrum@Scale.
Certified Scrum courses are endorsed by Scrum Alliance, a non-profit Scrum credentialing organization.
Generally speaking, the Licensed Scrum curriculum goes beyond that strictly required for Certified courses. The Licensed Scrum curriculum includes the Lean principles, Scrum Master & Product Owner techniques, real-world cross-industry case studies, proven patterns for improving team and organizational performance, and an overview of how the Scrum roles scale in an organization.
The Licensed Scrum Program has a global community of expert trainers and thought leaders who have demonstrable experience improving team and organizational performance across industries and cultures. Our Licensed Scrum Trainers bring a range of real-world case studies and examples into their teaching.
When the course is taught by Scrum Inc., the Licensed and Certified courses are identical in structure and content. In the marketplace, a Licensed Scrum Credential requires that students are taught the Lean principles, Patterns of high-performing teams, and scaling, which are not required for Certified Scrum courses.
