SCRUM

/ INTRODUCTION

Snap Tech offers the popular, internationally recognized Scrum certifications through the SCRUMstudy examination body. Snap Tech is also a SCRUMstudy approved Authorized Training Partner (A.T.P.)

The Scrum framework is a standard agile delivery approach supported by the SBOK™ Guide, which is structured in such a way that it supports product and service development in all types of industries and in any type of project, programme or portfolio, irrespective of its complexity. The SBOK™ Guide is a standard guide for organizations and professionals who want to implement Scrum, or for those already using Scrum, who want to make improvements to their products, services or processes. It is intended as a reference and knowledge guide for both experienced Scrum practitioners or other product or service development professionals, as well as by persons with no prior experience or knowledge of Scrum or any other project delivery methodology.

/ WHAT IS IT?

Scrum was formulated as a faster, more flexible way to deliver the greatest value in the least amount of time. Scrum ensures transparency in communication and creates an environment of collective accountability and continuous progress. It relies on adaptive planning and iterative development and delivery. The primary focus of Scrum is on the value of people in getting the job done effectively.
