Working Toward True Scrum Mastery

The market has embraced Scrum certification, and it has helped drive wide scale adoption of agile methods. Now, Scrum adoption is helping springboard various hybrids that combine Scrum with XP, Lean, Crystal and even Kanban. Is this cause for fear among Scrum practitioners, or is it an opportunity for continued improvement? How can we continue to advance our learning and progression, and grow into true masters of Scrum?

Sanjiv will lead a discussion on:

  • How Scrum certification has helped agile go mainstream
  • Organizational Scrum hybrids: customizing with XP, Lean, Kanban
  • Personal adoption of Scrum: Scrum roots, community and true mastery


You will learn:

  • How Scrum certification has helped drive agile adoption
  • How Scrum ties in with other methods like XP, Lean, Kanban, etc
  • How each one of us can work towards personal improvement as agile practitioners.
