In our Foundations series, you’ll learn the basics of Scrum (or Kanban), which go much deeper and serve as a foundation for further training programs. For example, the “Certified Scrum Master” (CSM) training course builds on this. So you get solid basic knowledge here.

The Essentials training courses are designed for a “quick start”. So if you only need to know the most important things in a nutshell to get started, the Essentials training is right for you.

However, in order to work successfully in Scrum and actually implement the agile principles and values, there is no way around this Foundations training. In short, “Essentials” is more of a “start-here” when there is very little time; Foundations is “continue-here” when there is more time.

If you are serious about using Scrum in your team and no matter what role you will be working in, the knowledge you acquire here is the foundation of your work – hence the name.

The training is therefore intended for agile developers in a Scrum team (including possible organization-specific roles such as architect, tester, business analyst, etc.), product owners and Scrum masters. But it is also important for team leaders and all those in the organization who want to understand how Scrum works.

No. You can complete this training without any prior knowledge.

However, it is advantageous if you already have an understanding of agile working – you will be better able to internalize the connections and background. We therefore recommend taking our “Agile Foundations” training course in advance.

You need a computer with a modern Internet browser (Chrome, Safari, Firefox or Edge – always the latest version) or a tablet with the latest version of iOS or Android. The device must be able to play audio and video. So if you can watch YouTube videos with it, it should work 😉

In addition, you need an Internet connection with halfway decent speed (in the sense of the above). So you have to be online to consume the content.
