Case Study from Real World Experience: Microsoft Customer Support (Jon Fincher on 8/12/19)
I was hired at Microsoft as a Support Engineer in Customer Support Services (CSS) in 1995, and over the course of my early career, I supported a number of products. At the time, Microsoft had telephone support available for anyone who purchased a product, as well as second tier of support for developer products and difficult cases. We were expected to analyze and answer customer questions, provide answers or explain why the problem could not be solved, and in general ensure customers were satisfied with the products and support they received.

Case Study from Real World Experience: Microsoft Windows Sustained Engineering Teams (Jon Fincher on 6/15/19)
When I first started as a program manager in WinSE, there were two distinct Windows servicing groups — one located in Redmond, WA, and the second in Hyderabad, India. The team in Redmond serviced the most recently release version of Windows, while the team in India owned all the serviced versions of Windows prior to that. For example, at one point, the team in Redmond would service Windows 7 and Server 2008 R2, while the team in India would service Windows Vista, Server 2003, and so on. Each location had a full servicing team available, including program managers, developers, and testers. The exception was release, which was owned in Redmond only.

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. 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.

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 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.

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!
Instead of paying $30+ for a book, I learned Scrum for free, and got a well-respected certificate for the same price.

The event is to understand and explore the real essence of Agility and moving away from the deception of Agile transformation. We invite all our students from India, and others who can travel.
Collective Avoidance is a norm that needs to be thoughtfully and progressively challenged to grow WFT behaviors. Perhaps paradoxically, until a (relatively) stable Team can successfully work through enough uncomfortable situations together (with facilitation), the Team will not achieve enough trust to collaborate effectively.
(T)his is mostly contributable to the ‘new’ development cycles (scrum/agile). In the old days, you would build software, test it via a pentest, and release it. Then a year later, you would do a version 1.1, have that tested and that was it. Now development teams release updates, patches, and new features every week, and some of our clients even do that multiple times per day. You can’t do a pentest every week. So you need some form of continuous testing.
