ACCELERATE BUSINESS AGILITY
The business world is in the midst of dramatic change. It is now projected that 50-percent of the companies on the S&P 500 will be replaced in the next 10 years. Survival in today’s marketplace means companies must adapt to disruption faster than their competitors. Market leaders must continuously innovate to stay ahead.
All of this change leads to unprecedented opportunities for companies willing to transform. From Fortune 100 companies to small startups, Scrum Inc. has a proven track record of helping organizations get ahead and stay ahead.
Our founder, Jeff Sutherland, co-creator of Scrum, inventor of Scrum@Scale, and signatory of the Agile Manifesto, has been performing successful data-driven Agile transformations longer than anyone else in the industry.
