How useful/valuable is the scrum master certification?

Does your next job want this? Very valuable. Do you find Deloitte inadequate at teaching how to run agile projects? Perhaps useful, if #1 is "yes". Perhaps can be a component of a carpet bombing of certs on your resume. Otherwise, not really.

CSM is a joke. Take a 2 day class and anyone can take the exam and pass. But unfortunately it's a requirement if you want to get a more valuable certification, CSP. The key isn't the certification it's the actual experience and knowledge you have from the practical application. https://www.scrumalliance.org/certifications

On most engagements, the work of a scrum master is usually an additional responsibility of a workstream lead. I'll be surprised to see dedicated scrum master resources and project managers in the same engagement. That's just administrative overhead.

What D1 said. The CSM itself is largely useless.

Cert is a joke but well recognized. DD does a lot of agile delivery, and it is frequently a dedicated role. If somebody else is paying for it go for it

Didn't end up making the cut in Strategy consulting case interviews. Would really like to do strategy / S&O some day. I love using data to inform decision-making.
