Fragen & Antworten (FAQ)
Scrum is a framework for agile product development. In the Scrum framework, you work in short cycles (sprints) in order to obtain feedback from customers often and as early as possible. The Scrum Team consists of three roles: Scrum Master, Product Owner, and Development Team (Dev Team). The team is self-organized and interdisciplinary. This means that many decisions are made directly by the development team. To create a potentially deliverable result and to ensure the highest possible quality, there are a number of meetings such as Daily Scrum, Sprint Planning, Sprint Review, and Sprint Retrospective for the Scrum Team.

ScrumAlliance and Scrum.org are two different organizations with different goals and structures. The ScrumAlliance is a non-profit organization with the goal of “transforming the world of work”.
As the world's largest community with more than 500,000 members, the ScrumAlliance undertakes a variety of initiatives. For example, the ScrumAlliance hosts Global Scrum Gatherings three times a year and supports Scrum User Groups in over 100 cities.
The selection process to become a Certified Scrum Trainer® of the ScrumAlliance is by far the most demanding in the industry. As of June 2020, there are only 250 Certified Scrum Trainers® worldwide. Currently, 11 of them work with and for the Agile Academy. The most important authors on the topic of Scrum are all members of the ScrumAlliance: e.g. Dr. Jeff Sutherland, Mike Cohn (co-author in the Scrum knowledge area of the Agile Academy) or Lyssa Adkins. Scrum.org, on the other hand, is a privately owned organization and is primarily focused on the topic of software.
The Agile Academy has the perfect training for everyone:
The Certified Scrum Master Training prepares you for the role of a Scrum Master. As the person responsible for the framework the Scrum Master has to master it so that he can convey the essence of Scrum to the development team, the product owner, and the organization. In addition, we dive into the task as facilitator and coach. In the end, you will have a deep understanding of Scrum and the role of the Scrum Master. In addition, you leave the training with an agile "toolbox" to start as a Scrum Master in your company.
The Certified Scrum Product Owner Training highlights Scrum from the perspective of the Product Owner. In the first part of the training, we dive into the Scrum Framework. The second part of the Product Owner Training focuses on daily work as a Product Owner. First, we use Design Thinking, Business Model Design, and other methods and tools to get from a problem to the Product Backlog. Then we use a number of techniques, such as story mapping, to prioritize the product backlog and create release plans.
With the Certified Agile Leadership Training we offer support for managers and c-level executives. CAL-1 provides insights into the basics of agile leadership and gives you practical tips for business transformation from a leadership perspective.
In addition, there are a variety of in-depth courses (e.g. Kanban, Design Thinking, and OKRs) as well as free introductory events that give you a first look into the contents of the certification courses offered and the further training portfolio of Agile Academy within two hours.
