The new tool will launch in February at Certified Scrum classes taught by the co-creator of Scrum, Dr. Jeff Sutherland in the United Kingdom.

Scrum Inc., the world’s premier Scrum training and consulting provider, today announced that it has been working with its partner Ivar Jacobson International (IJI), a leading consulting, coaching and training company for enterprise-scale agile software development, to apply Essence to build a navigable glossary of the essential elements of Scrum. This glossary will be used at Scrum Inc. and in Certified Scrum training courses, hosted by IJI and taught by Jeff Sutherland in the United Kingdom in February 2018.

Software Engineering Conference in Russia (SECR) is one of the brightest annual IT events in the country. The 13th edition of the SECR will take place on October, 20-22 in Saint-Petersburg and the conference program will include a key-note address by IJI Chairman Dr. Ivar Jacobson.

Learn how Essence is the Common Ground and can unlock Methods

Many organizations don’t realize they are in a method prison. It is easy to understand why not. They have not identified any problems because they haven’t seen how it could be different than today. The problems are too abstract without a solution to them. Once upon the time users didn’t know that software should be built using components, e.g. java beans. Similarly, they didn’t know they needed use cases or user stories to capture requirements. And so on. However, once they got it, and started to use it, they saw the value. Similarly, once they see that they can have access to a global library of practices, which are continuously improved, and from which they can select their own method, they won’t go back to what we have today.

Scott Ambler, of Disciplined Agile Delivery fame and one of the earliest signatories of SEMAT, has joined the SEMAT Advisory Board.

"I am excited about working with industry partners at SEMAT and leveraging the ESSENCE standard", said Scott Ambler in a recent phone interview, " in order to not just have different types of re-usable domain content built up for use as accelerators in Disciplined Agile Delivery projects, but also to clearly guide the industry on the benefits of specific granular practices that are currently uniquely only present within the Disciplined Agile Delivery method.”
