If you are looking to create positive, lasting change in your agile organization, an Agile Education Program by Scrum Inc. credential can set you apart. Our Agile Education Program credentials are the only Scrum training credentials endorsed and created by Dr. Jeff Sutherland, the co-creator of Scrum.
