Koombea's ScrumMasters hard at work.

One of the reasons Koombea runs so smoothly and efficiently through various projects is due to an office full of ScrumMasters certified by the Scrum Alliance. With almost all employees certified – Koombea has development down to an art.

What is Scrum?
For those of you who are baffled by this term “scrum,” here’s an explanation. Scrum is a simple yet effective framework used to complete complex projects – mostly in software development – to streamline production and effectively get projects done on time.

The word “scrum” originally comes from the sport rugby. The term was used as an analogy in the Harvard Business Review comparing the rugby scrum formation to high-performing, cross-functional teams in the business world. The term and framework stuck – streamlining production and development since 1993.

To become a ScrumMaster, applicants must complete the Certified ScrumMaster course to fully learn the framework and the processes.

Koombea’s Advantage
While many firms and Fortune 500 companies use the Scrum framework, not many have employees certified by the Scrum Alliance. Almost all of Koombea’s engineers are Scrum Alliance-certified, ensuring an office full of hardworking and efficient engineers.
