Train your organization

Agile and Scrum, Beyond the Basics

This training will prepare participants to participate in a Scrum team or support the team from the outside in a sustainable way. 

Scrum is a powerful product development framework with a focus on maximizing business value. Many organizations practice Scrum, but few succeed in getting the most out of it.  Without trying to convince, and with loads of practical examples and pragmatism, we search for ways to make Scrum and Agile work in your context.

Participants receive a solid introduction to Agile and the Scrum framework and will experience the principles of Agile, Lean, and Scrum that are vital in implementing Scrum in your specific context.

Participants learn by simulation what it means to develop an Agile mindset, and what enables people to behave differently. Also, common practices will be challenged to surface common pitfalls and misunderstandings and how to avoid them.

From experience, we recommend a diverse audience from many different roles and experiences on all levels, to get the most out of this training.
