Based on the 2017-2018 State of Scrum report by Scrum Alliance, 63% of the respondents are experiencing the success of implementing the Scrum framework for delivering the projects successfully.

reviews on our popular courses

I attended the CSM training by Knowledge hut and it was really helpful. The true meaning of agile was demonstrated through active working sessions and it helped me put it into practice at work. Also our trainer very clearly made us understand that trying to customize agile to fit into your current waterfall model at work will NEVER work and he made us do exercises which really made things very clear. Overall, I'm very impressed and would recommend it to everyone who is moving to agile.

The training was really helpful for us to get certified. It was more of an interactive session. Thanks to Suresh Konduru, who helped us learn the principles of agile and how to practice them!
