Licensed Scrum Program Launches With 41 Trainers In 12 Countries Serving 5 Continents
Thanks to the positive response from the Agile, Scrum, and business communities, Scrum Inc. is proud to announce the first cohort of 41 Licensed Scrum Trainers (LST). Representing both established and currently underserved markets, this first cohort immediately establishes a worldwide presence for the Licensed Scrum Program (LSP).
LSP classes go well beyond theory. These classes combine the proven Scrum Framework with lean principles and known Scrum Patterns for high performing teams and enterprises. They also include lessons and case studies from Scrum@Scale implementations.
“The ability to successfully implement Scrum in the real-world is the cornerstone of our new Licensed Scrum Program,” says Scrum Inc. CEO JJ Sutherland, “Each of these LSTs has a proven track record both as trainers and practitioners. Each has used the Scrum framework to successfully transform teams and organizations.” In short, JJ adds, “these LST’s know how to use the Scrum Framework to quickly create value for both customers and businesses. They know how to teach others to do the same. How to truly achieve the promise of Scrum - twice the work in half the time.”
