VivifyScrum, the company behind the eponymous Agile project management software made its proprietary Scrum training course available to everyone interested, completely for free. Over 15 comprehensive chapters and quizzes, VivifyScrum Edu provides more than a basic understanding of Scrum, the most popular Agile approach.
The increased adoption of Agile approaches such as Scrum to project management across industries has resulted in greater demand, but also in higher salaries. For example, the recently published Scrum Master Trends report by Scrum.org showed that two-thirds of Scrum Masters make more than $75,000 in yearly salary, with numbers being even higher in the United States and Australia.
Equally interesting is the data which shows that by far the largest number (over 70 percent) of organizations that are adopting Agile are still in the early or growing stages, meaning that there will only be more need for Scrum Masters and agile coaches in the future.
In light of this new data, VivifyScrum decided to help the community and the industry by providing access to their Scrum course completely free of charge.
The VivifyScrum Edu was designed and developed in its entirety by VivifyScrum team and a number of consulting certified Scrum Masters. The course was envisioned as both an introduction to the world of Scrum and a resource that would ask more advanced questions and inspire truly Agile thinking in people who do the course.
Goran Prijic, the CEO of VivifyScrum pointed this out as the crucial idea behind the course,
“We wanted to make sure the course is not just questions and (the right and wrong) answers. We wanted to create hypothetical situations where people can apply their new Scrum knowledge and really think about the best approach to different situations.”
VivifyScrum is the company behind the Agile project management software of the same name. The tool is a top-to-bottom project management solution that covers everything from collaboration on Agile boards, time and team management and even invoicing.
