What is Scrum?
Scrum is an agile development method for development based on iterative and incremental processes. Scrum is an adaptable, fast, flexible, and effective agile framework designed to deliver value to customers throughout the development process. The primary goal of Scrum is to meet customer needs through transparent communication, collective responsibility, and an environment of continuous improvement. Development starts with a rough idea of what needs to be built and creating a prioritized (product backlog) list of features that the product owner wants to keep.
What is ScrumLearn?
ScrumLearn® is a qualification scheme born from the iLEARN experience in Scrum training and certification area, and from the practical experience in consultancy activities and coaching of initiatives managed with Scrum. The goal of the certification program is to ensure that the key roles of the Scrum team have useful and necessary skills to fulfil their responsibilities: Scrum Master, Product Owner, and Developer.
What are the benefits of using Scrum?
The three main benefits of using Scrum are:
First and foremost is getting passionate clients. In Scrum, sprints are really short, so results are delivered and ready for testing in 1-3 weeks. The main focus of Scrum is to deliver new features or fixes frequently and to collect customer feedback as quickly as possible. As a result, Scrum speeds up the troubleshooting process and the development of new features and keeps customers happy.
Lower production costs
Using Scrum in development reduces production costs. Product cost is largely determined by the time and effort required for the new release. But companies are rarely able to estimate the true total cost of production. In Scrum, story points can be used to estimate the complexity of any task. Complexity is closely related to production cost. Story pointing for each task enables to better estimate the cost of developing new features, and also allows project managers to prioritize tasks based on their complexity.
Enhanced collaboration & communication
The third major area of Scrum's strengths is its intense focus on collaboration and day-to-day communication. Scrum provides task visibility for each team member to track progress and enable better resource allocation. A strong focus on collaboration results in a happier and more productive team. The two main advantages of Agile Scrum are faster response to market demands and cost savings due to improved performance.
Who should get Scrum certified?
Scrum training courses are fit-for-purpose for whoever is interested in having a deep understanding of Scrum and for those who professionally act in ICT as architects, business analysts, designers, developers, team leaders, testers, product managers, program managers, project managers etc.
Our Scrum courses aim at providing candidates with the necessary knowledge to operate as Scrum Master, Scrum Developer or Scrum Product Owner in Business-as-Usual projects or activities conducted with the Scrum methodology. The acquisition of this knowledge is a necessary condition, but it is also important to gain experience participating in Scrum initiatives in different roles; it is important to gain the knowledge of facilitation and coaching techniques and the knowledge of context in which the Scrum initiatives are accomplished as far as they represent equally essential elements for playing Scrum roles with effectiveness and success.
How do I get Scrum certified?
iLEARN developed the ScrumLearn® qualification scheme to support the spread and develop the understanding and knowledge of the whole Scrum context.
The best way to get certified is attending ScrumLearn® accredited courses, online or by traditional approaches.
iLEARN provides Scrum training and the corresponding Scrum certification for all the following roles and programs:
Developers are members of a Scrum team who contribute to achieving planned outcomes or product themes.
In this context, ScrumLearn offers the Scrum Developer certification, which is designed to assess and demonstrate mastery of the skills necessary to optimally perform the developer role in a Scrum team.
The role of Scrum Master is, in Scrum application field, the expert that operates as a coach and facilitator for all the other members of one or more Scrum teams involved in the implementation of products. Therefore, he doesn’t directly achieve the expected results, but it helps the others to have success in the Scrum application and in achieving the goals. He is an expert of the subject with theoretical and practical skills of Scrum implementation and of the role of facilitator and coach.
ScrumLearn offers in this context the Scrum Master Certified certification (also called "Certified Scrum Master - CSM") that has the aim of evaluating and attesting the mastering of the necessary skills to carry out the role of Scrum Master optimally.
The Product Owner determines the product roadmap to be implemented using the Scrum methodology by identifying, describing, and prioritizing the "features" to be implemented.
In this context, ScrumLearn offers the Scrum Product Owner Certification, which is designed to assess and demonstrate mastery of the skills necessary to optimally perform the Product Owner role in a Scrum program.
