Agile Training

Have you implemented Agile or Scrum and are finding it’s much harder than you thought? Are the results not what you were expecting? Are you lost in the mass of methods and advice?

Or do you simply aspire to be truly excellent and want to take your people and organisation to the next level?

We provide Agile training customised to your needs. From Agile leadership, transformation and teamwork to specific training for Scrum Masters, Product Owners, Business Analysts and Project Managers.

We go beyond the basic Agile and Scrum skills to draw on leading-edge techniques from product development, business analysis, coaching, leadership and psychology to give you a solid foundation to create personal and business success in challenging situations. We teach techniques from a wide range of Agile methods including Scrum, Kanban, Extreme Programming, SAFe, Lean Startup and Evo.

We’re pragmatic and teach what works and what will suit you and your organisation. Our Agile courses are based on proven techniques and unique perspectives from 14 years hands-on experience running Agile teams and implementing transformations in large enterprises.
