Our Mission

Dr. Jeff Sutherland, co-creator of Scrum and creator of the Scrum@Scale framework, has always been driven by one mission: to spread Scrum around the world. The Agile Education Program powered by Scrum Inc.™ was created to support this mission. AEP provides individuals and organizations with a clear path to implementing Scrum in a way that delivers results. The Program supports the Scrum Team Member, Scrum Master, Product Owner, Scrum@Scale Practitioner, Agile Coach, and Scrum Trainer credentials. These credentials are the only Scrum education credentials developed and endorsed by Dr. Jeff Sutherland.

Our Curriculum

The Agile Education Program curriculum was developed from Dr. Jeff Sutherland and Scrum Inc.’s 20+ years of experience delivering twice the value and impact at half the cost in organizations around the globe. Only Scrum Trainers by Scrum Inc™ are authorized to teach this curriculum and certify students through the Agile Education Program. Course curriculum includes an emphasis on Lean Principles, Patterns of High-Performing Teams, Scrum@Scale™, and lessons from real-world implementations.

History of the Agile Education Program

It all started with an idea: to spread Scrum around the world.

That idea inspired Scrum Inc. to create a pilot education program in Tokyo, Japan in 2019. The purpose? To help organizations in the Japanese market incorporate high-productivity, low-waste ways of working into their business operations. This pilot education program, called Scrum Inc. Japan, was a success. Not only did it encourage sustainable growth and digital transformation for major organizations in the local market, it offered a unique opportunity for Scrum to have a definitive impact on a major world economy. The next challenge? To replicate that success on a world stage. The program needed to scale.

The Agile Education Program was formally introduced in 2020 to support a global community of Scrum and Agile practitioners. Within 12 months, AEP partnered with over 100+ dedicated Scrum Trainers to offer Scrum Master, Product Owner, and Scrum@Scale Practitioner certifications. Now, we are focused on leaving a lasting, transformative impact on the world.

Avoid the Buzzwords: Deliver True Business Value

When you apply innovative, empirically-based agile education to any Scrum team, you can change the way an organization does business.

AEP knows that teams need to deliver business value. Uncertain economic climates, innovation challenges from swift startup companies, and more are putting organizations across the world at risk. The Agile Education Program encourages individuals and organizations to embrace the opportunity of increasing productivity, team happiness, and delivering value.

Serving industries like software, IT, construction, transportation and logistics, oil and gas, retail, healthcare, and more, the Agile Education Program has agile training solutions to support the needs of both large and small organizations.
