That’s why as many as 75% of internally driven Scrum adoptions struggle to realize the full spectrum of benefits promised by Scrum. Gregory Smith, Principal Consultant with ThoughtWorks, shapes his 16 years of technical and project leadership expertise into a Certified ScrumMaster course crisply focused on enabling you to lead or participate in a successful Scrum adoption.
