by Scrum Alliance

At Scrum Alliance we know how important it is to have access to tools and resources that will help you thrive as a Certified ScrumMaster® (CSM). Now, you have exclusive access to agile experts and a community of ScrumMasters through the ScrumMaster Personal Improvement (PI) Community Board. The ScrumMaster PI tool – including the Community Board – is an included benefit of your Scrum Alliance CSM Certification. Start your journey of improving as a CSM today. 

Additionally, Scrum Alliance is proud of all the offerings the ScrumMaster PI tool provides as an exclusive benefit to all Certified ScrumMasters. This resource was created by Comparative Agility and designed with help from members of the global agile community. With the ScrumMaster PI tool, CSMs can assess their strengths and opportunities for improvement, receive personalized recommendations, track their progress, and improve in their craft.

The ScrumMaster PI tool also incorporates an exclusive Community Board, a discussion board for CSMs looking for advice, counsel, and support in a safe environment. The Community Board includes an “Ask an Expert” feature, where CSMs can reach out to Guides (certified Trainers and Coaches) in a confidential manner. CSMs can also discuss publicly and engage with the wider CSM community.
