Scrum Training and Coaching

Certification Study Suite

What Is

Scrum is a modern and flexible framework for managing product development. Its characteristics include quick response to requirement changes, fast and frequent product delivery, self-organization and continual improvement.

Who Uses

Both small startups and large Fortune 500 companies like Google, Microsoft, Facebook or Amazon rely heavily on Scrum in the development of their products. It allows them to deliver faster, minimize mistakes and increase the return on investment.

What Makes It

Traditionally projects are planned ahead and divided into consecutive phases, which makes it difficult to adapt to new requirements. Scrum fixes this problem by using short development cycles that always deliver release-ready products.

Can I Use

Yes! Scrum is a general purpose framework that can be used for anything from developing software to planning a wedding. It will help you focus on the most important aspects of the project and keep track of your progress.
