Interesting material. Learned about what we do is not ideal and how to Scale. Will try to implement for my clients.

This course was very insightful in that it helped me realize the Scrum process used at my company has flaws. It also helped me pin point these flaws.

Course was paced well. Material excellent. Instructor very knowledgeable.

As an inexperienced member of a Scrum Team, that is practicing Scrum, I found this course really helpful in providing me the foundation needed to further grow into a Product Ownership (Product Champion) role. I've been able to spot changes that I will be able to recommend to the team.

Great courses. Lots of info. Have learned actual meaning of some of the terminology, will be able to translate this to better use of my Teams.

Excellent. Never did story mapping at the Product Champion level and it was very cool. Learned about the various PO [Product Owner] roles which helped me understand the various hats as well as skills that I might need to develop to grow.

At mid day on Day 1, I felt that we had spent too much time on fundamentals of Scrum. For an A-CSM course, I expected to jump straight into more advanced topics. I enjoyed Day 2 more for that reason. I also realized that some so-called 'basic' topics are more nuanced than I thought.

So you want to learn Scrum. But is training really worth it?
What can training give you that reading a few books can’t?


Transforming your team or organization to a new methodology is a big undertaking. Organized training will give you the kickstart you need and save you valuable time otherwise wasted on costly trial and error.


Studies show that when learners “do and say,” they experience an increase of knowledge retention up to 80% over reading alone.


Books and blogs are good knowledge resources. Skill, however, is acquired by doing. There is simply no replacement for the skill building that occurs with hands-on activities and real-life simulations.

Scrum attendees

There is no right or wrong person to attend this training. In fact, the most successful agile adoptions have included training for everyone, right down to Finance and Sales staff. Scrum training is especially appropriate for anyone in the corporate structure dealing with rapidly changing demands. In a traditional organization, these roles might include:

Project Managers
Program Managers
Technical Writers
Product Managers
QA Staff

What Industries

Use Scrum?

Scrum industries

The most popular use of Scrum is for software development in a wide variety of industries, including financial services, insurance, education, information technology, government programs and supply chain management. But Scrum goes beyond software development! We’ve known organizations and individuals who have used Scrum for graphic design, wedding planning, data warehousing, consulting, classroom projects, household management, auto salvage yards and much more. Scrum is appropriate for almost any complex project with rapidly changing or emergent requirements, regardless of the industry.
