Published on October 5, 2017

Scrum is a little strange to those unaccustomed to its lexicon and methodology. That strangeness has led to some myths propagated out into the world. Some are flatly untrue. Others are mostly untrue. Some myths are just projections of Scrum's quirks without context.

In this 30-minute webinar, CBT Nuggets trainer Simona Millham sets the record straight, providing an overview of Scrum certifications and methodology, as well as a few tips about how to keep the managing out of your project mastery.

Here are several key topics and their timestamps:

0:25 – Myth #1: Scrum is just a fad

4:25 – Myth #2: Scrum projects are unmanaged

7:28 – Myth #3: Scrum skips all the planning and documentation

10:11 – Myth #4: Organizational restructuring is the hardest bit

11:29 – Myth #5: Scrum is all talking and no action

A final word from Simona: Scrum isn't meant to easy. It's meant to shake-up long-held processes and beliefs.
