Scrum with the best!

As partners of [email protected] and Scrum Inc. we can bring the latest innovations in Scrum to your teams. With Jeff Sutherland and the team at Scrum Inc. we have co-created some great Essence based practices and cards in Scrum Essentials and [email protected] Essentials that we can use to support your teams to excel. 

Better Scrum Through Essence Training

Check out our new course, Better Scrum Through Essence.  The course is designed to help teams and Scrum Masters improve their use of Scrum!  Essence certification is included following successful completion of a multiple-choice exam.  Now available for private company delivery, either on-site or on-line!

Scrum based practices

In conjunction with Scrum Inc. we have created some Scrum and [email protected] practices to help teams understand those ways of working better and more quickly.  The practices facilitate the use of serious games that Scrum Masters, Coaches and facilitators can use to teach and re-enforce the key aspects.  Take a look at our CardStore to learn more and download the practices in poker-sized card format.

Use the cards to:
- Act as a quick reference
- Improve your Scrum implementation

- Perform health checks
- Integrate Scrum with other practices

What Does Jeff Say?

“I worked with Ivar Jacobson International to leverage the Essence Industry standard to capture the essential elements. I use the cards in many of my Scrum training courses today and they prove to be very popular with both students and training partners. The cards add exercises and interactive games to enhance the learning experience.

If you want to accelerate your Scrum adoption and understanding, you can get your own Essential Scrum Cards and bring the Scrum Guide to life”

Super successful Scrum teams, may find themselves working in an organization, needing to scale what they do!. 

[email protected] is a framework within which networks of Scrum teams operating consistently with the Scrum Guide can address complex problems, while creatively delivering products of the highest possible value. These “products” may be hardware, software, complex integrated systems, processes, services, etc., depending upon the domain of the Scrum teams.

[email protected] enables the transformation of every division, department, and service in any organization and can efficiently coordinate an unlimited number of Scrum teams through its use of a “scale-free” architecture.

[email protected] naturally extends the core Scrum framework and these cards were developed with Dr. Jeff Sutherland, the co-creator of Scrum.
