The situation is very competitive in the project management market where besides the traditional PMP certification provided by the Project Management Institute, there has been the increased adoption of agile project management certification, mainly the ScrumMaster official titles provided by either the Scrum Alliance or Scrum.org. This is so true that the PMI has now developed its own Agile Project Management certification. Certifications are also present in another number of software development areas. According to the Software Testing Magazine, the International Software Testing Qualifications Board (ISTQB) is the clear leader in the field of software testing certifications, with only few competitors that act more locally.
