Concepts, Practices and Pathways

Agile concepts can be traced backwards for decades in complexity theory, war theories, project management, sociology and most sciences. Agile practices show us how to ‘think about’ and manage the work required for solving complex problems. There are several agile pathways for collaborating on problems that require more than a single person to solve.

Why Scrum Study Guide

Our study guide is aimed at two purposes. The first purpose is to help you pass the exam(s). The second purpose is to distinguish between agile concepts so that you can gain a mastery of practice and apply it successfully to your real world needs. Why? Certifications are necessary because it helps employers recognize those people with advertised skills. People with certified skills are more likely to get ‘the job’. However, it does not mean that those certified people will have the real skill to do the job. Thus we are passionate about writing this study guide as a combination of ‘theory of book’ and ‘real world use’.

Modern Scrum vs. Scrum Exam Knowledge

We will use the term ‘Modern Scrum’ to describe the scrum concepts we think are useful for ‘real world use’ and we will use the term ‘Scrum Exam Knowledge’ to describe the concepts you will need to pass the exam. These two sets of concepts are not always the same, and we will call attention to where they diverge so that you can explore them yourself. Our distinctions will help you create a separation between ‘pass the exam knowledge’ and ‘world class expertise in agile’.

Manage Learning and Master Agility

The Scrum Study Guide is not intended to give you a deep immersion in scrum which would take 10,000 hour of practice for mastery. The Scrum Study Guide will help you manage your learning so that you can pass the exam. The Scrum Study Guide will help you sort through the bewildering amount of information on Scrum so that you can quickly master agile concepts, practices and pathways.
