Nowadays a lot of companies/software developers wants to get Certified Scrum Master(CSM) certifications. I don't understand why they are in such a hurry. Mostly CSM courses cost anywhere between 1000 - 2000 USD.
I have heard, The Scrum Alliance and the CSTs(Certified Scrum Trainers) are making a lot of money out of it. After looking at the commercial aspect emerging out of Agile methods, and on a lighter note,
I have come up with an analogy.
Agile could be compared to any open source software developed by a bunch of geeks to solve a specific set of problem(s).
Scrum could be compared to the companies who make use of open source softwares, and build a product around it, sell it and make money.
