Scrum @ Scale Online Course Postponed

Scrum @ Scale Online Course Postponed

Rescheduled for Wednesday, February 4th. 

We want you to choose the backlog for our January online course on Scrum at Scale. Scrum Inc.’s CEO Jeff Sutherland will present an in-depth analysis of the modules most requested by attendees, as well as making plenty of time for Q&A. So be sure to enter your top three modules when you register. For a complete list of all modules, click on the info graphic to the right.

The Scrum at Scale framework allows for context-specific solutions to scaling, unlike other prescriptive methodologies. The modular architecture of the framework enables organizations to incrementally inspect and adapt their own structure without causing system-wide consequences.

Length: 1 hour

Cost: Free. Register Here

All of Scrum Inc.'s online courses are eligible for Project Management Institute PDUs and Scrum Alliance SEUs. For more on how to claim your PDUs and SEUs, visit our FAQ page.

Scrum Inc. Heads Back to the Valley

Scrum Inc. Heads Back to the Valley

This past fall I visited some of the biggest tech players in Silicon Valley (PayPal, Twitter, Salesforce, Wallmart.com etc.) There were two take-a-ways from those visits.

Version One Webinar: Getting to Done

Version One Webinar: Getting to Done

In conjunction with the release of Scrum: The Art of Doing Twice the Work in Half the Time, Jeff paid a visit to Version One in Atlanta. During multiple sessions, the same question kept surfacing: What is the biggest impediment to running a successful Scrum? The answer: getting to done. The second value of the Agile Manifesto is working software over comprehensive documentation. Teams struggle to get fully functional and tested software at the end of a sprint.

Version One asked Jeff if he could share this insight with the Agile community. Below is the webinar that Version One sponsored. In it, Jeff goes into great detail on how to get to done.

Scrum at Scale: Changing the Conversation

Scrum at Scale: Changing the Conversation

Part of the key to Scrum's success is that it allows for context-driven solutions and processes – which is why no two Scrum implementations are identical.

The conversation should instead be about how to scale the underlying principles of the Scrum framework that have enabled it to be so adaptable.

The Scrum at Scale framework is our first move in that direction. It is a minimal extension of the core Scrum framework that keeps the modular structure at the core of the Scrum framework, and allows you to scale a Scrum implementation tailored to the unique needs of your company.
