Scrum Alliance adopted the Scrum Guide, The Definitive Guide to Scrum: The Rules of the Game, co-authored and updated (most recently in 2020) by the Scrum framework’s co-creators, the guiding curriculum for this offering. Certified Scrum Developer candidates are expected to build a body of knowledge of the Scrum framework, including its accountabilities, events, and artifacts. Incorporating Scrum principles and practices takes diligence, patience, and a commitment to continuous improvement. Scrum is a framework, not a prescriptive methodology.
Students attending the Certified Scrum Developer (CSD) course should expect to learn essential concepts and skills to work successfully in a Scrum team that focuses on creating software. They also should expect to be enabled to bring necessary collaboration skills into their group. Thirdly, this course should understand the need for agile engineering practices and encourage participants to adopt them in their contexts.

Additionally, demonstrate “working together as one team.” Example definition of team: a small number of people with complementary skills, committed to a common purpose, performance goal, and approach, are mutually accountable. Example: T-shaped skill profile.
