6. Certified ScrumMaster, $101,729
"Another project management-related certification to make the list this year, Certified ScrumMaster was originally focused on software application development," said Hales. "Today it is often applied to many areas outside development. Scrum is a rugby term; it's a means for restarting a game after a minor rules violation or after the ball is no longer in play (for example, when it goes out of bounds). ... In Scrum, however, there is not a single project manager. Instead, the team works together to reach the stated goal. The team should be co-located so members may interact frequently, and it should include representatives from all necessary disciplines (for example, in software design, developers, product owners, experts in various areas required by the application, etc.)."
