Transparency is a must in scrum rules as it allows important aspects of the process to be visible to all the members who are responsible for the result. Since every team member should understand it is always advisable to use a common “terminology” so that reviews can be shared by all.

After thinking over for quite a while about whether to go for PMP or SCRUM certification, I opted for a PMP prep course , Instructer was too good and I passed with relative ease. Looking forwards to apply what I learned in PMP classes in my company.
