According to Dr. Jeff Sutherland, co-creator of Scrum, “58% of Scrum implementations fail”. Moreover, Jeff says “Essence can quickly identify the cause of failure”, and that “Essence is the key to success”. At Ivar Jacobson International, we have been working hard on designing a training course which addresses the failures of Scrum implementations.
Watch our short video explaining you the benefits of the course.
Further down we have also made extracts from the testimonials on ivarjacobson.com given after our alpha version of course given April 15th – 16th, 2021.
Toru Takeuchi, IBM Japan Ltd, Japan ”Better Scrum through Essence was a very useful course for me. As an agile coach I found it difficult to explain the similarities and differences between traditional project management and Scrum. Now I can explain Scrum to project managers in terms of Essence card games.”

Silvia Von Stackelberg, Product owner, United Internet Corporate Services Gmbh, Germany “I liked the combination of theory & practice, in particular the interactive exercises. I learnt a lot!”
Marwane El Kharbili, PH. D., WOMAT, France “The course is extremely engaging, a treasure of simulations, analyses, games and assessments. It contains a wealth of innovative formats to guide you into the depths of a practical understanding and mastery of SCRUM, as well as and its implications on teams, systems and organizations”
