Why Scrum?

The process wars are over. Agile won. By agile, we mean Scrum, because agile is not something that can be done. Agility is a mindset that is achieved. For software development teams and organizations, agility is achieved through Scrum. Scrum is a lightweight, empirical framework used for developing and sustaining complex products, such as software. This is why we have partnered with Scrum.org.

Why Professional Scrum?
In cooperation with Microsoft and Scrum.org, Accentient has created the Applying Professional Scrum For Software Development (APS-SD) program. Formerly known as the Professional Scrum Developer (PSD) program, it focuses on the most important accountability on the Scrum Team: the Developer. Students attending an APS-SD course will learn how to use modern practices to develop an increment of releasable functionality according to a definition of Done. They will do so while working within a cross-functional, self-organizing Scrum Team, performing iterative, incremental development according to the rules of Scrum while using the tools and technologies of their choice.
