Providing businesses with essential tools

20 May 2016

We’re providing businesses with essential tools worldwide! 

We are delighted to announce the launch of a series of Scrum courses in London, United States and the Netherlands. These have been developed to help businesses improve the way they build and present their products and services.

The courses will help delegates avoid the pitfalls that derail an alarming number of projects at businesses across the world.

We’re fully qualified to lead the full range of Professional Scrum Training courses and coach people at all levels in technical and managerial roles. From us you’ll get an experienced coach, trainer, speaker and technologist.

A recent IBM study revealed that only 40 per cent of projects meet their schedule, budget, and quality goals. Another study, by McKinsey & Co in conjunction with the University of Oxford, found that, on average, large IT projects run 45 per cent over budget and 7 per cent over time yet still fall 56 per cent below their value expectations. And 17 per cent of large IT projects fail so badly, they threaten the existence of the company.

VersionOne’s 10th annual State of Agile report said that scaling Scrum is the most effective and popular Agile methodologies used.
