SBOK Guide has been developed to create a necessary guide for all practitioners of project management personnel and companies who are interested in implementing Scrum environment for their projects. It’s not just for individuals who are new to scrum but also for practitioners who have been using scrum framework, without a deep knowledge of scrum, primarily because very little is known about scrum.
Last week I was teaching a Scrum Master Course, for bunch of delegates, while a couple of them were completely new to Agile methodologies all the rest were working either in the Agile environment for 5-6 years and a couple of them were Scrum masters for 5 years. My query to them was that you should know a lot about scrum, so what’s the objective or expectation from this course.
You will be surprised to know that their objective was not certification but in depth knowledge of how to use scrum in their projects. So very little is known about scrum, there is a lack of information in most books available.
This is where I believe as a scrum certified trainer, the SBOK Guide has done a tremendous job in putting things in place for scrum. SBOK guide is a reference and knowledge guide written by experts of Agile methodologies and service development methodology.
The SBOK Guide has been developed as a standard guide. The SBOK Guide, draws from the combined knowledge and insight gained from 1000′s of project practised across various industries, organizations and across the global. In addition to all this the contributions to SBOK are from industry experts who have taught and practised scrum for many years for over 400,000 professionals in almost 150 countries.
SBOK Guide is valuable as comprehensive guide for all scrum practitioners as a guide for project management. SBOK Guide provides you step by step information of every phase of project development, with explanations on the input and output of each process.
SBOK is presented as a guide, though it has comprehensive and well-defined resource with detailed insights into implementing scrum projects in any environment. It provides an organised approach to applying scrum framework to real time projects.
