Global Accreditation Body for Scrum and Agile Certifications


Valini Trainning is a Global partner of VM Edu , an international certification body in project management through the Scrum Methodology

Scrum is an interactive and incremental Agile framework for successfully delivering projects.


Scrum overview

Scrum is the most popular Agile framework for delivering projects. It's an adaptive, iterative, fast, flexible, and effective framework designed to deliver significant value quickly and throughout the project.

Scrum ensures transparency in communication and creates an environment of collective responsibility and continual progress. The Scrum framework, as defined in the SBOK® guide, is structured to support the development of products and services in all types of industries and in any type of project, regardless of its complexity.


A Scrum project involves a collaborative effort to create a new product, service, or other outcome as defined in the Project Vision Statement. Projects are impacted by constraints on time, cost, scope, quality, resources, organizational capabilities, and other constraints that make planning, execution, management, and success difficult. However, the successful implementation of the results of a completed project provides significant business benefits to an organization. Therefore, it is important that organizations select and practice an appropriate project delivery approach.


Scrum's key strength lies in its use of cross-functional, self-organizing and empowered teams that divide and execute their work in short, focused work cycles called Sprints. Scrum's focus on value-driven delivery helps Scrum teams deliver results as early in the project as possible.

When working on large projects, programs and / or portfolios, some additional processes. are needed to address additional coordination and synchronization efforts.

To be effective, Scrum teams should ideally have six to ten members. This practice may be the reason for the misconception that the Scrum framework can only be used for small projects. However, Scrum can easily scale for effective use in large projects, programs, and portfolios. In situations where the size of the Scrum team exceeds ten people, multiple Scrum teams can be formed to work on the project.

Large or complex projects are often implemented as part of a program or portfolio. The Scrum framework can also be applied to managing programs and portfolios. The logical approach of the guidelines and principles of this framework can be used to manage projects of any size, spanning geographies and organizations. Large projects can have multiple Scrum teams working in parallel, making it necessary to synchronize and facilitate the flow of information and improve communication. Escalating Scrum for Large Projects facilitates coordination between Scrum teams, enabling effective implementation on larger projects, and Escalating Scrum for the Enterprise facilitates coordination among multiple Scrum teams within a program and portfolio.
