“We’re thrilled to bring the industry’s top Scrum training and certification to our enterprise clients. The founder of Scrum.org, Ken Schwaber, is actually one of the founders of the Scrum process. The certification and testing ensures the curriculum is current and effective,” said David Romine, AgileThought CEO. He adds, “We are passionate about improving the software development practices of the organizations we work with - either through training or working side-by-side on an engagement.”
Landes commented, “Scrum.org sets a very high bar for becoming a training partner and receiving certification. We believe their certification and testing process provides the most value for those who attend. This drive to provide a thorough understanding of the Scrum process aligns with the needs of our clients.”
The training courses are intended to educate all team members on the most advanced techniques used to incorporate proper Scrum into the software development process. Scrum.org is solely focused on improving software development. They seek experienced trainers, like Landes, who are first and foremost exceptional software developers and team managers.
