Axon Active opened Scrum courses for IT students

Scrum – an Agile framework for developing and sustaining complex products – continues to grow in popularity and acceptance. Scrum originally was formalized for software development projects, but it works well for any complex, innovative scope of work. The possibilities are endless. Today more and more ICT companies in Vietnam are applying Agile, Scrum in software development & testing.
