Agile Framework Trainings
Introduction to Agile & Scrum is a workshop where we introduce students to the fundamentals of Agile Software Delivery with Scrum. Students will understand the what, why and how behind Agile & Scrum and learn how to empirically manage value in their companies. The workshop also helps students establish a strong foundation for more advanced workshops in the future.
Applying Professional Scrum (APS) is a hands-on course that provides the foundational knowledge needed to work with Scrum in a highly practical way. The course is a combination of instruction and team-based exercises. During the exercises, students work in Scrum Teams over a series of Sprints to learn Scrum while using Scrum. They experience first-hand how the Scrum framework improves their ability to deliver value compared to traditional methods. The course also includes a free attempt at the globally recognized Professional Scrum Master I certification exam (PSM I). This course was previously known as Professional Scrum Foundations.
Applying Professional Scrum™ for Software Development (APS-SD) is a 3-day hands-on course where students experience how to deliver quality software using Scrum with Agile and DevOps practices. Students work in Scrum Teams over a series of Sprints, creating code on a realistic software system to learn Scrum while using Scrum. The course, formerly known as Professional Scrum Developer, includes a free attempt at the globally recognized Professional Scrum Developer I certification exam (PSD I).
Professional Scrum Master (PSM) is a 2-day workshop where students master the principles, values, and rulesof Scrum. Students apply Scrum to tackle real-world challenges and get immediate feedback that helps shift their mind-set and prepares them for success in the real-world.

The Professional Agile Leadership™ (PAL) Essentials is a modular workshop, adaptable up to 2-days in length based on the needs of your organization. The workshop provides a foundation for the role that leaders play in creating the conditions for a successful agile transformation using a combination of instruction and team-based exercises.
Professional Scrum Product Owner (PSPO) is a 2-day workshop that teaches students how to maximize the value of software products and systems. Effective Product Ownership is much more than writing User Stories. In this workshop, students walk in the shoes of Product Owners and take a Product all the way from Vision and Strategy to a Product Backlog and Release Forecast. Students will learn the accountability, theory, tactics and more importantly – the mind-set of Professional Scrum Product Ownership.
The course goes beyond the topics explored in the Professional Scrum Product Owner class by deepening the attendee’s understanding of the role through the exploration of the many stances of a professional Product Owner. This course is an interactive, experiential workshop where attendees explore topics through a series of exercises and discussions. Students should have at least one year of Product Owner experience and a practical knowledge of Scrum in order to participate in and benefit from these exercises. Having previously taken the PSPO class is recommended, but not required.
Many companies switch their software delivery framework to Agile while still retaining waterfall definitions of value like “on-scope, on-time, on-budget”. Or worse, they misuse Agile Metrics like velocity and burn-down charts to micro-manage teams and create un-intended destruction of value. In this workshop, we explore how to quantify business value at an Executive level in a way that is aligned with Agile Principles, Values and Practices.
This 1-day Team Kanban Practitioner (TKP) introductory-level Kanban training class, certified by Lean Kanban University, introduces introduces core concepts of Kanban and how you can use Kanban to get your team’s work under control through interactive teaching and discussion along with group exercises and games.

Management 3.0 started out as a book written by leadership guru Jurgen Appelo in 2010. Management 3.0 is now a global management movement.
The future of management is being facilitated through hands-on workshops that offer games, tools and best practices that project managers, team leaders, middle management and C-level execs can take back and use immediately to start increasing employee engagement and instigating change management.
In this 2-day hands-on course students with some Scrum experience will learn how to integrate modern UX practices, (UX is more than UI) into the way they are working in Scrum and how to work most effectively within Scrum Teams. Design work can sometimes feel slow, and not well suited to quick agile cadences and Scrum events, but that isn’t the case. Learn UX techniques that fit beautifully into Scrum, and practice these techniques with cross-functional teams in class.
Scaled Professional Scrum™ (SPS) is a 2-day course that teaches students how apply the Nexus framework to tackle the complexity of Scaling Business Value. Students are jump into a case study and are challenged to apply the Nexus framework and 50+ complementary practices to tackle real-world scaling problems. By the end of the course, students learn practical techniques for ramping up teams, backlog management, scaled planning, scaled refinement, scaled reviews and scaled retrospectives.
One of the biggest challenges with requirements is misunderstanding them. BDD is not founded on using a tool, but on a transformative way of approaching requirements with a triad of customer, tester, and developer. BDD scenarios become a detailed specification of the system, not a post coding verification artifact. By using the standardized vocabulary of the Gherkin syntax, requirements can be created by business facing individuals and then evolved into unambiguous, executable software specifications.
The Agile Testing Workshop (1 day) helps students learn the application of Agile Testing Principles and Practices to help organizations improve software quality and get the right behavior into products. Particularly valuable for people in Agile Software Development environments, the Agile Testing Workshop teaches the importance of fundamentally sound user stories, the Definition of Done (DoD) and Behavior Driven Development (BDD) as they relate to Agile Testing. In addition, students learn conditions of acceptance and how to automate Acceptance Criteria. Finally, the workshop concludes with emphasizing the importance of software quality.
