What is Scrum?
Scrum is a framework for using Agile, a project management method based on the idea of being adaptive to change. Scrum is particularly suited to complex projects and divides the project process into a series of sprints lasting up to 4 weeks, where each stage of the project is completed quickly. In addition, Scrum teams are empowered to make their decisions without the need for management approval, based on real-time events and information.
At computer chip maker Intel, the Product Development Engineering (PDE) group was often under tremendous pressure to deliver on time and according to requirements, while not having much control over deadlines, scope, or deliverables. This was resulting in missed deadlines, long work weeks and high staff turnover rates.
The sub-teams of PDE decided to try Scrum in order to improve their approach to product development. They formed seven Scrum teams and began with one Scrum Master managing all of them. After three months, an eighth team began using Scrum, and three more Scrum Masters were added. After five months, an additional five Scrum teams were added. This approach meant that Scrum was introduced into the organisation in a consistent way, and not too much change was introduced at once.
Introducing Scrum provided a number of substantial benefits. The Acceptance Criteria demanded by the method provided the group with a tangible way to measure whether a project was done or not. They also managed to cut down on the long working weeks of the past, by making sprints (intense periods of work) last nine days, so every second weekend was outside of a sprint. This took pressure off the teams and increased morale. In addition, communication improved and missed schedules were almost eliminated altogether.
Overall, Scrum turned Intel’s PDE from a command and planning-based organisation into one that was able to continually adapt and self-organise, resulting in reduced development times, better performance and happier employees.

Fact of the day:
“PRINCE2 has been around since 1989, that’s nearly 30 years!”
PRINCE2’s Key Features Include:
1. Business justification focus
2. An organised and defined structure for the project management team
3. A planning approach to products
4. Helps divide your poroject into stages that are manageable and controllable
5. A level of flexibilty that can applied to your business' project(s)

Having a PRINCE2 certification would be an asset to your career; not only will it increase your likelihood for employment, but it also helps you fulfil your job to the best of your abilities!
Where do you see yourself in years to come?
Being PRINCE2 Certified opens up many doors to a better future. It will enable you to make your way up the management ladder. Getting a project management role can require several years of experience within a technical role appropriate to the project, but being certified would boost your chances of being able to climb that ladder quicker!
You could find yourself managing projects anywhere from the top of an office building to even remote tropical islands out on the ocean.
Qualifications and Training
Imagine PRINCE2 as if it were a cake; with four tiers, each containing a different level of which you can study the course.
This is the base of the cake, a great place to start is you’re new. The foundation course covers the basic methodology and terminology of PRINCE2.
PRINCE 2 Practitioner:
The second tier is suitable for those already managing projects within a PRINCE2 environment and therefore have a little experience in mind.
PRINCE2 Foundation & Practitioner:
Tier three contains both courses if you wish to take both.
You will need to re-register after 3-5 years of becoming “PRINCE2 Certified”, this is just to keep your memory refreshed. Just think of it as you’re done eating the first and second (maybe even third) tiers of your cake – but the final tier, you can’t quite stomach yet. So you come back to it every now and then to remind you how good it tastes.
The world of PRINCE2 will open up your mind to many possibilities in the future of your career.
“So have your cake and eat it.”
