What is Scrum?

                                                      Agile Scrum is a simple method for managing and completing even the most complex project.  Based on my experience, it has also been the number one reason why projects have delivered on time! 

                  Who should take is course?   

                                                              Whether you are a scrum master, product owner, team member, business stakeholder or simply someone who wants to understand what makes scrum tick, this is the place to start.

  What will I learn? 

                                                              In this class you will learn: 

  • Concise overview of Scrum - The exact events, roles, rules and artefacts used to deliver a project using scrum along with the history of Scrum. 

  • The facts based on the Scrum Guide - The correct terminology and use of Scrum is essential to mastering it. The Scrum Guide is the rule book on Scrum and many do not use it or know it.

                                                              The course is video based with no supporting document necessary.  I go through key gotchas from the scrum guide. 

  How is the course structured? 

                                                              Each section features an overview of a particular aspect of Scrum foundational principles.  All is based on the scrum guide so you know that you are learning the facts. 

Perfect foundation for the beginner or a brief refresher for Scrum Master's, Team Members, Project Manager's, Developers or  before  a Scrum Master job interview.

Inspired by God, the Bible, Ken Schwaber, Jeff Sutherland

  Who are Pashun Consulting? 

                                          Pashun Consulting is a specialist in Scrum coaching and leadership within major global organisations.  We are authors of over 10 books on the subject of scrum such as Scrum Mega Pack, The Power of Scrum in the Real World, and Confessions of a Scrum Master to name but a few (as well as the upcoming Agile User Story book).  Our teachings in the form of books have been published to the popular infoq website among other places and we are responsible for the popular free scrum ebook.    What is the instructor's background?                                          Paul's journey began before agile and scrum methods were widespread in the industry and this gave him the benefit of leading and working on projects using non-agile methodologies such as PRINCE 2 and waterfall. He began as a software developer at the BBC and over 10 years later his consulting experience took him to be an Agile Portfolio Manager.  For this reason, we have seen both sides of the story and can give good reasons why we ended up on the scrum side of it.  Having used both agile and non-agile variants, we can                                          honestly say that the scrum framework, when fully understood and used as its creators intended, has been the most successful framework for delivering a quality product. At the same time it gives ambitious businesses the flexibility to change requirements as needed in this modern world.
