Scrum Patterns


The Scrum Guide is like the rule book for the game of Scrum, and Scrum Training gives you enough of a taste of Scrum to get started. This exposition of Scrum as patterns really helps you understand the tradeoffs you must face when realizing Scrum components, whether you are a Scrum Master, a team member, or a principal who is introducing Scrum into your development culture.


Scrum Patterns are building blocks for your Scrum organization and process that you can use to inspire your Scrum adoption, evolution, and refinement. They are based on introducing Scrum gently, in an agile way, one pattern at a time. Each pattern can be tailored in a million ways to fit your context, using your insight and building on feedback.

These building blocks are based on years of research and of experience from the leading world experts in Scrum, and have been gathered into a book by 20 Scrum experts over nine years. This seminar shares those patterns with you, explores them as a way of taking your Scrum understanding to the next level, and shows you how these patterns can help guide your team as they improve their Scrum one step at a time. Consider bringing your whole team to the seminar as your retrospective this Sprint (team prices are available to give you a good deal).
