Scrum is a detailed method for people to work together in an enjoyable way. It also leads to great results. Scrum was developed for the IT world, it is the answer to apparently uncontrollable and complex IT projects. In the IT Scrum is booming: more and more huge companies have started to work with Scrum. Different areas are also turning to work with Scrum. Everywhere the benefits are tremendous: speed, work pleasure and results increase immediately.


eduScrum uses the powerful ceremonies, roles and tools of Scrum. In this way the group owned scrum board gives the students an overview and the structure to make the group’s work transparent. Every lesson starts with the stand-up which sees to it that there is a focus and a bond, this also put them in the right work mode. The retrospectives help students to continuously improve their tactics. eduScrum is a framework for a cocreative process and supporting.

Pedagogic layer

In eduScrum learning is the key element: effectively and efficient learning, learning to cooperate better, learning to get to know themselves better, learning to be co-creative. Because of that eduScrum owns an extra ceremony: creating teams on the basis of additional qualities. Own and extra instruments have also been developed. These instruments challenge and appeal to young people. With that eduScrum puts a powerful pedagogic layer under Scrum.


The benefits of eduScrum are similar to those of Scrum. This way of working generates pleasure, power and responsibility, the work is faster and the results are better. In addition, students pass through a positive personal development.
