An upward path of higher contribution
Scrum Alliance has developed appropriate training programs for each level of individual contribution to team efforts. Our certifications provide assurance that team members can immediately impact projects. As individuals progress through our training programs, they help their teams achieve higher levels of performance and success.
Scrum is a living, breathing framework. Its continued success is based on learning from successful implementations on actual projects. Scrum Alliance recognizes that key factor in our training. Rather than providing simple, one-time training, our programs offer ongoing career education and support through Scrum Education Units (SEUs). This educational model provides more meaningful training that helps people stay current with best practices. Further, as part of the Scrum Alliance community, members interact with their peers and continuously develop their capabilities.
