AGILE TEAM START UP

SUMMARY

In this three or four-day course your team will learn the most important performance driving aspects of Agile. Unlike traditional Scrum Master courses, this course is focused on the team as a whole. The course is extremely practical and covers several additional agile practices outside of Scrum that will help your team get started faster and perform at a higher level than most teams.

This is our highest rated and longest running team course. Please join us on the agile journey, and put teams in place that deliver real business impact.

The course is based on hundreds of man-years worth of experience and rests firmly on internationally established agile frameworks, such as Lean, Scrum, XP, DSDM Atern and other internationally proven practices.

Unlike most other courses we follow a clear chronological path throughout the course, making it much easier to understand exactly when and how each practice should be used.
