SPS Assessment

The Scaled Professional Scrum (SPS) assessment is intermediate-level and grounded in the Nexus Framework, the exoskeleton of scaled Scrum.

The SPS assessment:

  • Indicates you can manage and participate in scaled software and product development using Nexus
  • Confirms that you know appropriate agile practices and scaling fundamentals you could apply to multiple Scrum teams working together
  • Provides an industry recognized certification designed by Scrum.org 

Passing the SPS assessment grants the industry recognized SPS Certification. It is the only publicly available assessment of your knowledge on scaling Scrum and agility.
