SCRUMStudy Agile Master Certified (SAMC™) + Agile Coaching expert

"Thriving in today’s marketplace frequently depends on making a transformation to become more agile." Scott M. Graffius's Agile Transformation

Rapid changes in technology, market demands, and expectations have paved the way for the conceptualization and implementation of Agile methods and values in many organizations. Agile relies on adaptive planning and iterative development and delivery. It focuses primarily on the value of people in getting the job done effectively. SAMC Certified Professionals should appreciate the concepts of Agile development and have the ability to compare and choose the Agile methodology appropriate in a given situation.

Applicants will be awarded the SCRUMstudy Agile Master Certified (SAMC) certificate by SCRUMstudy after successfully passing the certification exam.

Agile and Lean thinking has delivered a paradigm shift in how individuals collaborate, communicate and operate to deliver solutions that meet customer needs and business goals. Agile requires an "all in" mindset from both business and technology where all individuals work together to deliver business value in the form of working software.
