See What Our Students Are Saying

At mid day on Day 1, I felt that we had spent too much time on fundamentals of Scrum. For an A-CSM course, I expected to jump straight into more advanced topics. I enjoyed Day 2 more for that reason. I also realized that some so-called 'basic' topics are more nuanced than I thought.

This course was very insightful in that it helped me realize the Scrum process used at my company has flaws. It also helped me pin point these flaws.

As an inexperienced member of a Scrum Team, that is practicing Scrum, I found this course really helpful in providing me the foundation needed to further grow into a Product Ownership (Product Champion) role. I've been able to spot changes that I will be able to recommend to the team.

Course was paced well. Material excellent. Instructor very knowledgeable.

Great courses. Lots of info. Have learned actual meaning of some of the terminology, will be able to translate this to better use of my Teams.

Less teacher to student than community of peers. Highly discussion based. Fewer demonstrations than CSM [Certified Scrum Master]. More focus on unique issues across multiple places of work than learning principles.

I definitely feel more comfortable in regards to the process of Scrum. Dan is very much a Subject Matter Expert and it shows. I enjoyed the way Dan was able to break things down into real world examples.


The ½ day Leading Remote Scrum Teams class is an intensive applied session designed to help participants immediately apply improvement steps to their current situation.

Exploring Scrum: The Fundamentals

Exploring Scrum: The Fundamentals

By Dan Rawsthorne and Doug Shimp

This book takes a deep, exploratory, look into the Scrum framework, and offers advice about how to think about it, and how to use it. Some of this advice is philosophical, some is pragmatic, some is practical, and some of it is controversial.

This book is not an introductory text.

Getting Scrum implemented right is hard, your software tool needs to support the right behaviors or groups often regress.

Scrum Dictionary

Scrum Dictionary removes the lexicon noise and delivers a clear, concise definition of Agile terms, complete with examples and related terminology, in a format that's as user-friendly as they come.

Leading Remote Scrum Teams Training Benefits

So you want to learn Scrum. But is training really worth it?
What can training give you that reading a few books can’t?


Transforming your team or organization to a new methodology is a big undertaking. Organized training will give you the kickstart you need and save you valuable time otherwise wasted on costly trial and error.


Studies show that when learners “do and say,” they experience an increase of knowledge retention up to 80% over reading alone.


Books and blogs are good knowledge resources. Skill, however, is acquired by doing. There is simply no replacement for the skill building that occurs with hands-on activities and real-life simulations.

Who Should Attend

Scrum attendees

What Industries

Use Scrum?

Scrum industries

The most popular use of Scrum is for software development in a wide variety of industries, including financial services, insurance, education, information technology, government programs and supply chain management. But Scrum goes beyond software development! We’ve known organizations and individuals who have used Scrum for graphic design, wedding planning, data warehousing, consulting, classroom projects, household management, auto salvage yards and much more. Scrum is appropriate for almost any complex project with rapidly changing or emergent requirements, regardless of the industry.
