Frequently asked questions

    Scrum Master has 2 options in terms of training. DVT presents the official international Certified Scrum Master training course as well as SCRUM training (this one) which locally certified. Both are very valuable courses with the SCRUM training being more cost effective for teams due to it being locally certified.

    The SCRUM course does not cover KANBAN. DVT does however combine SCRUM and KANBAN in a 3 day course that covers both.

Agile Coaching is a vital part in customizing an Agile framework to work for your unique environment and unique challenges.

  • Should I consider SAFe certification?Open or Close

    The Scaled Agile Framework is a brilliant and detailed framework referred to when Agile is used in larger organizations. SAFe is a good framework to understand since it adds a few additional roles and ceremonies to KANBAN and SCRUM forming a framework that can scale for large teams and organizations. Should you be looking for answers to scaling an Agile implementation or Agile for larger cross functional teams, SAFe is a good course to consider.

    The SCRUM framework also has many scaling options for instance by introducing SCRUM of SCRUM ceremonies or looking into due track SCRUM.

  • Does the course cover Lean?Open or Close

    The core idea of Lean is to maximize customer value while minimizing waste. All Agile Frameworks (including SCRUM and KANBAN) are based on the Lean principle with regards to value driven focus and minimizing any waste. In actual fact Lean is more focused on the mindset and thinking which overlaps brilliantly with regards to any Agile framework as both is based on the same principles and values.
