Certified SCRUM Master and Certified SCRUM Product Owner

Learning for certification as your target, is the wrong approach. Learning to learn and improve yourself, is the way to go. My idea behind this certification was to learn more, and to learn it right. This was a collaborative workshop and seminar provided by certified coaches from Scrum.org which I highly recommend.

Never stop your love for learning new things!!!

I have been working in a SCRUM environment for quite a while now. I have heard couple of times that many companies implement SCRUM partially, or hand pick only some aspects, I wanted to learn exactly what is each ones role (Scrum master, and Product owner). Here below is information regarding what the learning for certification demonstrates.

PSPO1 (Professional Scrum Product Owner 1) 

PSPO1 Is a certification which demonstrates your knowledge of the following

  • Complete know-how of the SCRUM guide by Ken Schwaber and Jeff Sutherland
  • Scrum Framework
  • Scrum Theory, Principles, and its Artifacts
  • Overall understanding of Cross-functional and self-organizing Teams
  • Product owners backlog management as a value maximizer
  • Optimizing the value of the work the Development Team performs
  • Why should one move away from Project Mindset to Product Mindset

PSM1 (Professional Scrum Master 1)

PSM1 Is a certification which demonstrates your knowledge of the following :-

  • Complete know-how of the SCRUM guide by Ken Schwaber and Jeff Sutherland
  • Scrum Framework
  • Scrum Theory, Principles, and its Artifacts
  • Overall understanding of Cross-functional and self-organizing Teams
  • Training and facilitation of Scrum in your organization

My Experience on these certification:

As I already had a basic know-how (the time I took the exam) with regards to scrum, I felt that the exam was very fast paced. You need to read and grasp the context, and pick the right answer. Both exams comprises of 80 questions and you have just 60 mins to answer all of them.

I want to share with you the following tips, if you are taking this exam in the near future:

  1. SCRUM guide… know it and know it well..
  2. Take up Open Assessments which is an easy way to check what you know/ have learnt. https://www.scrum.org/open-assessments
  3. Take these assesments multiple times until you can consistently reach above 95%
  4. Hooray…!, your ready.
