Data-driven approach to growth

Scrum is by far the most popular framework used for agile ways of working. But as the Scrum Guide cautions, while Scrum may be simple to understand, it is difficult to master. Comparative Scrum is an assessment focusing solely on this popular methodology that helps teams and their organizations create a baseline of where they are, identify concrete areas of improvement and a start evolving their ways of working.

Created by coaches with experience from some of the most successful agile transformations in industry, Comparative Scrum helps people develop a data-driven approach to growth and fuels teams’ improvement backlogs at all levels of the organization.

Practice Informs Theory

Trusted by several leading organizations involved in agile transformations, the assessment covers the most critical elements of Scrum necessary to get your team from novice to advanced.

Focus Where it Matters

The results will help you develop an improvemant roadmap with your Scrum teams and prioritize the most important actions in a consistent, structured way.

An Invitation to a Conversation

The Comperative Scrum assessment increases coherence and understanding between the coach and the team. It is an invitation to a conversation that helps the members of the team and their coach align on a path forward.

Courage, Focus, Commitment, Respect and Openness

The assessment is based on the five values of Scrum: Courage, Focus, Commitment, Respect and Openness. The Scrum team can discover these values as they work through Scrum Events, Roles, Artifacts and Metrics. Comparative Scrum combines these four dimensions.
