This deck of cards has been developed to train your knowledge and deepen your understanding of the Scrum framework. Each card refers to one of the elements that together form the Scrum framework.
Each card holds a comprehensive overview of the properties of an element of the Scrum framework.
Colour-coded references between the elements of Scrum enhance your understanding.
Learning Scrum from the ScrumCards is more engaging than reading the Scrum Guide in its original form.
Personalize the standard ScrumCards with your company logo and contact details.
To maintain our high-quality standards we print and ship physical cards.
I created the ScrumCards© when I was preparing for my Professional Scrum Trainer (PST) license. I discovered the fundamentals of Scrum and learned how all elements of Scrum tie together and support empiricism and Lean thinking. The more I studied the Scrum Guide, the harder I found it to grasp all the information in it. That is because there is such high information density in the Scrum Guide and all elements are interrelated.
Sharing my insights will help you with understanding and mastering Scrum.
I ordered all the elements of the Scrum framework and collected all relevant properties of each of the elements. The puzzle I tried to solve was: How do all the elements relate to each other? In what way does each element implement the Scrum Theory? What do I need to know to implement Scrum correctly?
I initially developed the ScrumCards to better understand the 2017 version of the Scrum Guide. If the 2020 Scrum Guide release would have been perfect, there would be no need for a 2020 edition of the ScrumCards. I feel there is value in reshaping the content of the 2020 Scrum Guide into ScrumCards:
In the 2020 version of the Scrum Guide, I see twenty elements of Scrum. I summed up all there is to know about each element to understand the Scrum framework. For each type of element identical properties are listed. Explicit descriptions for every property unlocks a wealth of information. And give a better understanding of how the elements of Scrum tie together into this elegant framework.
The ScrumCards© are not designed for Scrum Masters only. My intention is to offer a complementary way to access and understand the beauty and power of the Scrum framework.
Use the ScrumCards© as flashcards to memorise all aspects and relations of the elements of the Scrum framework.
Carry the ScrumCards© with you as a portable version of the Scrum Guide to verify aspects of Scrum elements during your daily work.
Use ScrumCards© to share and spread the power of empiricism and Lean thinking.
The ScrumCards© were carefully designed using colour codings for each element. Each colour represents a family of elements of Scrum, helping us to see how the Scrum framework is structured.
Each element of the Scrum framework categorized with a colour and an icon.
Each relationship between elements is marked in its respective colour.
Appealing colours carefully chosen to support learning.
Printed on extra heavy 330 GSM double matted (water resistant) cardboard.
All information per Scrum element is structured and categorized consistently.
The ScrumCards are updated to match the latest version of the ScrumGuide.
The Scrum ScrumCards© can be customized with your company logo and contact details without additional cost (minimum batch of 15 sets).
Make the ScrumCards© your own by branding them so they will serve not only as an educational but also as a promotional tool.
Scrum cards have helped us enormously in spreading the body of thought and in keeping the discussions alive. Highly recommended for those who want to draw attention (again) to the basis of Scrum!
A single deck costs €9,50 including VAT. Large batches (above 100 decks) are cheaper. Enter your details and we will get back to you.
ScrumCards© can only be ordered in physical format. Shipping costs form the Netherlands will apply and depend on your location. The cards are printed on high quality 300 GSM double matte laminated cardboard. The quality of the cards makes them a valuable tool that will last for many years.
