'A lightweight framework that helps people, teams and organisations generate value through adaptive solutions for complex problems.' (Scrum Guide, 2020)


What is Scrum?

Scrum is a framework for developing, delivering and sustaining complex products through effective team collaboration.

Scrum has been used to develop software, hardware, autonomous vehicles, schools, government, marketing, managing the operation of organizations and almost everything we use in our daily lives, as individuals and societies.




The Agile Business Consortium collaborated with APMG International to develop the Scrum Master & Scrum Product Owner training courses and certifications.

Scrum Certification

Courses addressing the principles and theory underpinning the Scrum framework – delivered by APMG and Agile Business Consortium accredited providers – and certification are available for both Scrum Master and Product Owner roles.

A Scrum Master is responsible for promoting and supporting Scrum - as defined in The Scrum Guide - by helping everyone understand Scrum theory, practices, rules and values.

The Product Owner is accountable for maximizing the value of the product resulting from the work of the Scrum Team.

Training and certification are based on The Scrum Guide, developed by Scrum creators Ken Schwaber & Jeff Sutherland.

It contains the definition of Scrum, consisting of Scrum roles, events, artifacts, and the rules that bind them together.

Courses offer a combination of instruction and team-based exercises. Delegates are challenged to think in terms of the Scrum principles to better understand their application when returning to the workplace.

Delegates will learn the role of Scrum Master and/ or Product Owner, enabling adoption of the Scrum framework for more effective product and solution development.
