Retrospective on Retrospectives (Alexandru Ilinca on 12/18/2020)
First retrospectives were very cold. It was like robots were talking "beep, boop, I can increase my productivity if my parameters are checked hourly, over" We were all introverts, awkward people. We were good at our jobs, but communication wasn't our greatest skill, it wasn't a skill at all.
How Scrum teams can thrive remotely? (Paulene Duque on 05/05/2020)
Teams from all over the world were caught off guard when the pandemic, COVID-19 broke in. It brought a scare not just to the economy but how businesses and teams collaborate. Most of the countries affected were brought to a lockdown, enforcing people to stay within the confines of their homes until everything is resolved. While this posed as a challenge for most businesses and teams, it has been evident that in the past five years, working from home or remote work has been both an option and alternative for business continuity. The question is - are teams prepared for it?
Why does my team miss sprint deadlines? 3 most common reasons explained. (Stanley Ang on 09/22/2019)
Have you ever felt that you have more tasks than you have time? Or that your customers are always at your back chasing for something to be delivered? How about needing to work extra hours and even on the weekends just to meet deadlines? When things like these happen, it affects the employees, the customers, and the organization.
I Already Empowered My Team… Why Are They Still Not Talking? (Stanley Ang on 09/07/2019)
For companies that have transformed themselves to having open communication without judgement, it is a big step forward. But with some studies made in the past 5 years, these companies that promoted open communications still had a common problem, which brings us to the question: why are their employees still not talking even though they have empowered them in their work?
Retrospective on Retrospectives (Alexandru Ilinca on 08/31/2019)
One of my favorite frame of discussion regarding ceremonies is Retrospective. It has clear intention and powerful benefits. You have the opportunity to stop and take a look at where you are. Did we run in a good direction? Are we still on the right path? Everybody knows people are different. Also, everybody knows that there are extroverts and introverts. It is known that extroverts get their energy interacting with people, introverts are beings that relax and energize with themselves. So how does a retrospective work when you have introverts in your team? Is it possible for them to survive?

We are on a Mission
Nolan Bushnell, the founder of Atari, came up with an aphorism: “All the best games are easy to learn and difficult to master.”
Take Guitar Hero as an example. You can learn it today; it is as simple as matching notes that scroll on-screen to colored fret buttons on the controller. But if you want to master it, then you have to learn things like how to strum in both directions, timing of the hammer-ons, using your Star Power, and most important of all, you have to learn how to play well with your bandmates. What you need is practice, practice, and practice!
Take football as another example. You can learn it today; it is as simple as moving the ball towards the opposition’s end-zone/goal. But if you want to master it, then you have to learn things like passing, shielding, tackling, shooting, and most important of all, you have to learn how to play well with your teammates. What you need is practice, practice, and more practice!
Scrum is no different. You can learn Scrum today; fundamentals of Scrum are so simple and common sense that anyone can learn it quickly and effectively. But if you want to master it, then you have to learn how to apply Scrum Framework in a real work environment, deliver a real project with real deadlines, and most important of all, you have to learn how to work well with your co-workers. What you need is practice, practice, and more practice!
Then, why does Scrum require high prices in thousands of dollars and extensive time commitment for training and certification? The fact is, there is no good reason at all — other than companies making a profit out of your hopes and dreams for a better career.
International Scrum Assembly™ is founded to address this problem.
We are on a mission to open-source Scrum training and certification so that; first, you learn easily at your own pace and the comfort of your own home; second, you prove officially that you obtained it without breaking the bank; third, you practice on the job so that you can truly master it.
With this mission in mind,
- We developed high-quality training material that teaches you the core of Scrum, and we offer it for free. In fact, we incentivize our readers by giving them 15% discount on certification.
- We developed practice exam questions that prepare you for the official exam, and we offer for free.
- Finally, we developed accredited certification programs, and we priced them as low as possible.
We believe Scrum is good for our planet; as more people can afford Scrum training & certification, more projects, and more companies, and more countries will benefit from the time-proven effectiveness of Agile and Scrum framework. This way, together, we make our planet a better place.

Hi everyone. My name is Nathan Andersen. Synergies Coordinator C.E. at All American Architectural Arts, LLC. Going into this I did not know pretty much about Scrum, which is a term I had heard thrown around in the product management world. I learned quickly that applying the agile framework to my area of business can be highly beneficial in laying the groundwork for projects. It allows us to kind of setup the project work more fluently and being able to fix problems on the fly. I've quickly learned that the ideologies of being a Certified Scrum Master aligns very well with being a Lean SIx Sigma Black Belt Professional, which I apply daily in my field of work. I want to personally thank the International Scrum Assembly for allowing me to do this without spending thousands of dollars and allow me further my education and paving my path to brighter future.

Hi, This is Giannis from Greece. Currently I am 25 years old. I have followed one bachelor's degree in chemistry and then master'ss degree in Economics and Business. Now I am participating in second master's degree. I do believe in the time of rising challanges I do believe that upscaling is the only option. Scrum Master certifications and Scrum Master is a thing. Involves how think and act and thrive in a changing world. Scrum Assembly offers a unique experience for those who wants to participate in the business sector. Informative and educational material for International Scrum Team Member, Scrum Master and Product Owner. Congrats again ISA and keep up the good work.
International Scrum Master, International Scrum Team Member
See, I've been a scrum team member and backups for master for about two years. I really thought that my experience had prepared me to ace the scrum master certification exam without really having to take the class. So I took a sample, went online and found out I was wrong. So I was looking for online material that I could study with and and prepare for the certification exam and I found that they were all pretty expensive and I was unemployed at the time, but I kept digging and I found Scrum Assembly. Scrum Assembly believes that the training shouldn't be so expensive for people. The certifications shouldn't be so expensive so they make the training free and they have the certification exams at a very reasonable price. I studied the Scrum Master material and passed first time, so then I studied the scrum product owner materials and pass that also. And I found that I'd actually been doing about 70% of the product owner's job this whole time and I didn't even know it. Knowing this, however, makes me much more confident and comfortable applying for positions for scrum master and scrum product owner. Thank you Scrum Assembly for making this possible for me and for making the materials so inexpensive. If anyone else wants to scrum master certifications that they can afford, look for scrumassembly.org. Thank you.

Hi, my name is Mariam and I am from Armenia. I am working as a project manager for already 5 years. For last two years, I am working as a scrum master and for that, I needed to enrich my knowledge of scrum so I did research found dozens of article, lessons, websites which were provided with certificates. I chose the Scrum Assembly. Why?! Let's see: 1st the very convenient price for certificate. And believe me, this is a very important point both for beginners and experienced scrum masters. 2nd free training that is divided and explained so perfectly that you can easily learn everything by yourself and be sure that will understand Scrum from A to Z. 3rd you can take a practice exam again for free and see how well you learned the lessons. And as in one of the lessons is said you need to invest in yourself so others can see your advantages. Being a certified scrum master gives another level of confidence and for sure gives you knowledge with which you can manage the scrum team in the best way possible. Thank you Scrum Assembly for making me a certified scrum master!
It is rare to find an organization to clearly state that the goal of taking an exam is to reaffirm one's learning. International Scrum Assembly does exactly that; courses are offered online, and the focus is on ensuring that the learner passes the exam with the right knowledge, rather than making it difficult for the learner. Thank you!
Hello! My name is Serghei Druta and I currently work as Project Manager for a Software Development company. I found many opportunities on the market that required Scrum Master Certificate. Thanks Google, my search brought me to Scrum Assembly site that provided me with very comprehensive material and training and I passed the exam without any problems. Great work, guys! Serghei Druta, Project Manager and Scrum Master
Hi everyone! I'm Dawid Jóźwiak and I have initially found about the International Scrum Assembly by searching for a complex Agile methodology training on the Internet, and I was looking for Scrum knowledge in particular. Agile is a very effective way of flexible management that bolsters employee satisfaction and production efficiency, unlike what was presented for many years by the previous rigid management systems. In Agile, and in Scrum, nothing is set in stone and everything is subject to elastic changes, comparing it to a rubber band of project management - it adjusts to the task that you put on it. International Scrum Assembly provides a comprehensive book on the topic, covering everything from team members, through developers, scrum masters, product owners and ending at the trainer level - everybody will be able to find their fit, and even the team member certificate provides more than enough knowledge on the matter to quickly become a senior in the field who knows what they're talking about, as long as they read the book to the fullest and know how to adapt it to the Agile mindset. I am an IT specialist in a company that has already applied the Agile framework to their business model, and in my free time I'm also a private community owner, and I can clearly see the benefits of thinking the Agile way both in business and in person. I recommend International Scrum Assembly as a fair-priced and comprehensive way of learning Agile and Scrum.
Hello, I am Saurav Dugar from Nepal, and ISA is the best platform to get certified. We get here free study materials, free test exam and main thing is that it's very easy to understand.

I'll recommended every scrum learner to get certified from International Scrum Assembly. Thank you.

International Scrum Assembly has provide me an opportunity in enhancing and showcasing my skills in Scrum frame-work which has given me great confidence in doing my duties as a Scrum Master in my organization. I really thank International Scrum Assembly for this wonderful opportunity.
It's not just getting certified but it's our Journey towards new path, helping to understand Scrum and getting applied to our daily schedule providing equal platform towards international level certification.
Scrum Assembly has very user friendly platform, clean, efficient, with usefull courses for Scrum certification. I found the topics very resourceful and practical, helping me to pass the exam easily. The prices for certification are very reasonable, so I strongly recommend Scrum Assembly as best value for money provider to all future Scrum students. I plan to continue with certification on other topics Scrum Assembly offers in future.
I have been practicing Scrum framework as Product Owner for several years in different projects and naturally I already had general knowledge of the Scrum key principles and methods. And after several years a question about formal certification arose. Given that Scrum principles are relatively simple, in particular in comparison to the PMP Knowledge Book, I strongly believe that the price about a thousand dollars on other certification web sites is really artificial and I was very much happy to find out an authority who charges reasonable 80$ for the Scrum certification. Besides the price, I have found the learning materials on ScrumAssemply.org very well shortened to the necessary essentials, with references to Wikipedia on some particular topics so people could dig deeper into a topic when/if they need it according to their past practices. Simple but full of necessary functions is your web site as a whole, fox ex. the User Account area. I was surprised and really enjoyed the possibility to seal my newly obtained certificate with the Ethereum blockchain ! That's really hot and rare on the web, thanks ! The practicing (sample) exams are also made smart, with direct links and popups to the learning materials. I would recommend ScrumAssembly.org as 200% satisfactory ! Thanks and kindest regards to the Team.
The material is relevant and with the right amount of detail to convey the point. A scrum master for 7+ years I found the International Scrum Assembly when looking for certification to validate that I in fact was supporting the implementation of scrum appropriately. The material proved to be a very effective review and I now have certifications as both scrum master and product owner!
My first experience in taking online training then certification for ISM from ISA is that it is very well / clearly written such that easy to follow and understand. Cost wise it is very competitive and more affordable relative to other providers. Congratulation ISA!
I'm a technical project manager & Software Developer for MGH Group IT Divisions for some years now and was looking to put my Scrum knowledge to the test. Getting prepared for the exam was really a great experience for me in the International Scrum Assembly, as the training offered by them, for free, was detailed enough and matched the quality of other high quality certification courses. The exam ask the right questions to validate your agile drive in both theory and real life situations.
Hi, it was a great experience for me. I don't speak english very well, so it was a double challenge. However the material is very easy to understad and proved to be a very effective tool and now I have my certification in scrum master! Now, my new challenge is to have certification in product owner. I am going to go for it!
