Scrum: most used Agile framework

With its simple & powerful empirical process-control model. Scrum is described by its creators as "simple to understand" but "difficult to master." To minimize the difficulties, SourceCell helps people learn the deeper why, and core principles, and then helps people create, incorporate & evolve their specific processes. We use a balance of assessment, business & team consulting, training, and coaching.
