Hi,

I am PMP certified and currently using the traditional project management for my project. However, due to the client side requirement, I need to plan the upcoming project using Scrum. I want to know and learn more about Scrum. I was browsing and found some information about Scrum on http://www.SCRUMstudy.com. Can someone please suggest some more relevant resources?

Also, is it important to get certified to implement Scrum?

Regards
Brain

I don't think it's important to get certified even though I am a CSM. Honestly, a certificate "awarded" to you after a two-day workshop is pretty empty. IMO, what's most important in implementing Scrum is an Agile mindset, a good understanding of the principles and values of Agile, and a willingness to fail and change. Look up the Agile Alliance and Scrum Alliance

The first thing to read about Scrum is the official 16 page PDF. That way you have a good mindset. After that, I recommend reading a book. I liked The Scrum Field Guide as a first book.

I agree that it is not important to get certified to do Scrum. I did find the two day course helpful and containing good advice. But I also practiced Scrum before it. Scrum is the type of thing you can always learn new things and get better at.

Hi,

I have gone through few newer guides recently and I liked the Scrum body of knowledge book. It provided guidelines to implement Scrum successfully. Try having a look.

I bought it from here http://bit.ly/1np7sxw

Would like to know from others what other guides are there in the market.

Cheers
Jonathan
