Making teams better. It’s the driver behind everything we do; guiding our training, shaping our coaching and steering our consulting. We recognize the power in a well-formed, agile team. Cultivating and concentrating that power is the backbone of our approach.

We are experts in Scrum Theory. However, we understand the critical difference between theory and practice. Our training transforms the fundamentals of Scrum Theory into practical implementation, known as Modern Scrum. By exploring real world, client-driven experiences, we give you the right Modern Scrum tools and techniques to use with your team. The result is meaningful, hands-on and adult learning focused on improving your team’s efficiency and effectiveness.

We practice what we preach. Our approach, like the foundation of Scrum, is agile and adaptive; reflecting the specific needs of your team. If your needs change, we adjust our focus and draw on our expertise to tailor a solution for your team’s success.

Our Difference

3Back_Our_Approach_To_Scrum 5323xWe don’t just talk Scrum, we live Scrum. Our 3Back Team is a well-formed, agile team; applying Modern Scrum in our own workplace. From our hands-on support staff to our seasoned consultants and trainers, every member of the 3Back Team is, at minimum, a CSM (Certified Scrum Master). Within every level of the 3Back team, we bring a real world appreciation and understanding of your team’s needs.

We value clean, testable code. Without this commitment, your team’s ability to thrive is compromised. Whether your team is in the beginning stages of exploring Scrum theory or requires advanced fine tuning of existing Scrum skills, we provide the expertise to make the commitment to sound code a reality.

We think of ourselves as a Goldilocks-style company. We are not too big, unable to provide individualized attention. We are not too small, lacking the bench strength to adequately address your needs. We are just the right size, actively invested in your team’s success by utilizing the collective depth and breadth of our Scrum knowledge.

As a geographically dispersed team, we bring key insights into practical Scrum application within a virtual work environment. All of our team members are stateside, providing accessible, customer-focused support and on-site consultation, if needed. We maintain a presence in Chicago, Minneapolis, Seattle and various other locations across the United States.

We are guided by our founding principle; your success is our success.
