Who is Scrum Alliance®
Founded in 2001, Scrum Alliance® is the largest, most established and influential professional membership and certification organization in the Agile community. We are a nonprofit association with more than 500,000 certified practitioners worldwide.
Our vision is to “Transform the World of Work” with a mission to guide and inspire individuals, leaders, and organizations with practices, principles, and values that create workplaces that are joyful, prosperous, and sustainable.
Inspire: We inspire individuals, leaders, and organizations to adopt Agile mindsets. We support their transformations with training and shared stories of change and innovation in companies around the world.
Enable: We enable the work of our certificants and members through a global network of Agile peers, trainers, and coaches. We develop content and learning opportunities, including webinars, global and regional events, local user groups, and more.
Guide: We guide the application of Agile practices, principles, and values through our career-long certification path. Our community of coaches and trainers are focused on providing knowledge, skills, and experience that support Agile transformations for both individuals and organizations.
Is Scrum Alliance a training company?
No. While we do suggest education paths and ensure that our trainers and coaches meet our strict standards, this is not the purpose of our organization.
As a nonprofit, we focus on creating value for our certificants and members by inspiring, enabling, and guiding the use of Scrum and other Agile methods to create effective and collaborative work environments.
We deliver value locally, regionally, and globally by supporting Agile community events, hosting Gatherings, and producing and distributing educational tools and resources.
