PMP vs. Certified ScrumMaster
I’ve heard both of these:
· PMP is not very useful to agile project management or agile organizations.
· Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) is at least equivalent prestige as PMP. Salary data seems to confirm this (link).
Are these true?
I’m asking because I am investigating project management certification options. I’m in an organization that is becoming open to agile methodologies. I realize that PMP probably isn’t antithetical to agile and Scrum, but it seems like there’s a tension between the camps, with PMP focused on traditional project management techniques.
What do you think?
