Numerous companies around the world have jumped on the Scrum bandwagon. The framework has now been adopted by companies from nearly every industry – from the software and tech world to the hospitality and non-profit sectors. While many have embraced the framework, many more are hesitant about dropping old ways of operating.
If your company is hesitant to adopt Scrum, join our two day Agile Scrum Master certification training in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. We’re well-acquainted with the challenges of introducing Scrum in a hostile or skeptical environment, and we’ll give you the skills you need to get past these obstacles.
Understanding the Challenges
Many startups have been eager to adopt Scrum. This is largely due to the fact that there is no set modus operandi in place. They’ve jumped in whole-heartedly and seen great success with Scrum. Older companies have to deal with years – or even decades – of “tried and true” practices.
While these practices might have been effective 10 or 20 years ago, they rarely meet the needs of today’s rapidly-moving market. Frameworks like Waterfall are simply too slow and unresponsive for the modern business environment, and they don’t provide an effective way of hearing and responding to customers’ needs.
In spite of all this, it can be difficult to present change. Scrum methodologies require a faster pace and a greater sense of urgency. The projects are moved out of the heavy bureaucracy and into the hands of the teams. Naturally, this doesn’t always go over well.
Successful implementation often starts with a Scrum “evangelist” – someone who is totally sold on the framework and is committed to making it work. Whether you’re the CEO, a project manager, or a team member, you can be the catalyst that gets the Scrum ball rolling.
Join us for two days of Agile Scrum Master certification training in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and learn how to implement Scrum in your organization.
