I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Jessica RigaProducerCommented:
The CSM is the most widely held and well recognized Scrum certification avaliable. However both are well recognized and accepted in the industry. The PSM is generally regarded as more challenging to acheive.

There are a great deal of differences between the two, in both time and cost. If you have prior experience in Scrum and are strapped for time, then the PSM I is the way to go (there is no manditory training before taking the test). However if you are new to Agile and interested in training then the most important thing is to find a good instructor, regardless of which organization you choose.
