SkillDisplay Partners with Scrum.org to Deliver Ongoing Learning Experience for Scrum
SkillDisplay, a web portal that allows learners world-wide to claim verification for their skills is partnering with Scrum.org, the Home of Scrum, to give customers access to extensive Scrum learning resources with structured skill management, learning paths, and verification based on a set of Professional Scrum Competencies.
Scrum is a lightweight framework that helps people, teams and organizations generate value through adaptive solutions for complex problems. Scrum is founded on empiricism and lean thinking. Empiricism asserts that knowledge comes from experience and making decisions based on what is observed. Lean thinking reduces waste and focuses on the essentials. The core tenets of Scrum are transparency, inspection and adaptation.
Track and visualize in-house skills
For businesses, tracking Scrum skills online is not only a form of acknowledgement. It helps document skills and identify shortcomings within the company. Questions like “Who is ready for certification?”, “What training do my people or teams need”, or “Do we have someone with that skill set?” are easy to answer with accurate skill verifications at hand.
In addition to official skill sets, such as those of TYPO3 and Scrum.org, SkillDisplay allows businesses to create business-internal skill sets. Skills have four verification levels from self assessment and peer verification to verification by an educational institution or an official certification.
Verify the Skills you have and Discover Skills you need to Develop
The new partnership aims to help SkillDisplay customers learn Scrum and establish it in their businesses even faster than before.
The partnership with SkillDisplay, gives learners, if they wish, the possibility to define and identify learning goals and track individual learning progress all along the way.
