Pivot your organisation's growth with industry-leading product development!

Scrum is a lightweight framework that enables teams and organisations to design, develop, and deliver better products faster, while adapting to external changes.

Scrum originated in Software Development and IT, where it was used to deliver high-quality and complex software products. Today, Scrum is adapted across multiple business functions (operations, security, marketing, sales, HR, etc.) making it an ideal enabler for agile transformation initiatives.


The Scrum Developer Role

Within a Scrum team, the Developers work iteratively across each Sprint to create any aspect of a usable increment. Before each Sprint, they work on Sprint Planning and building the Sprint Backlog, and during the Sprint they meet daily and adapt their plan toward the Sprint Goal.

The Developers establish the Definition of Done (DoD), to ensure all increments meet the agreed quality measures required for the product. As members of a self-managed team, they hold each other accountable as professionals.

Why should you get PCSD certified?

Although Scrum is lightweight and easy to understand, it is also very hard to master. Today, 81% of organisations use Scrum (66%) or a Scrum Hybrid (15%) as they have embraced agility, but only 16% report that their agile maturity is above average. This creates an urgency for up- and re-skilling, to match the need.

Becoming a PCSD certified professional will help you prove your skills and stand out from the crowd.
