The Most Practical Stories
Most courses teach you just enough to pass the CSM test. We do that too (in fact, we guarantee it), but view the certification as secondary to a comprehensive grasp of not just Scrum’s philosophy, but its real-world applications across different organizational scenarios. This includes applying Scrum outside of software development to business functions such as HR, marketing and sales.
Learn how to lead development teams towards agile operations by managing product backlogs, planning releases and sprints, tracking and reporting progress, and conducting retrospectives.
We have led full-scale organizational transformations at many scales and in many situations: from Fortune 100 commercial businesses to government agencies; heavily regulated organizations to gaming companies; small non-profits to individuals applying the practices at home. This current, practical experience yields stories that resonate, rather than recitation of rote theory.
