Drafting from the experience of working agile since 2007, I’m offering a variety of agile training tailored to distinct audiences. Some of these trainings are designed to offer the same content as certified Scrum trainings (e.g. Certified ScrumMaster Training or Certified Scrum Product Owner Training), the sole difference being: While I am both Certified Scrum Professional® – ScrumMaster and Product Owner I’m not a Certified Scrum Trainer, so I can in turn not certify participants in my trainings.

If you’re looking for an officially acknowledged piece of paper saying you possess knowledge, I’ll need to recommend you to someone else. If you’re looking for the knowledge of such trainings itself – I can provide that along with a wide range of real life scenarios.

Workshops / seminars for developers, teams and ScrumMasters

For developers, teams and ScrumMasters: Training focuses on technical excellence and collaboration. (1 to 3 days)

In it’s 2-day version, the training is similar to a Certified ScrumMaster training. It contains various fun exercises and games to both convey knowledge and keep everybody engaged and has some capacity for Q&A.

In it’s 3-day version it is similar to the 3-day version for POs and managers, also including managing backlogs and working with product portfolios.

The not highly recommended 1-day version saves on the games and exercises and is more of a lecture/classroom teaching-style.

Workshops / seminars for Product Owners

For Product Owners: Training focuses on backlogs and alignment and collaboration across product portfolios. (1 to 3 days)

In it’s 2-day version, the training is similar to a Certified Scrum Product Owner training. It contains plenty of games and fun exercises to both keep everybody engaged and convey knowledge and has some capacity for Q&A.

In it’s 3-day version it is similar to the 3-day version for teams and ScMs and managers, also including technical excellence and collaboration aspects.

The not highly recommended 1-day version saves on the exercises and games and is more of a classroom teaching-style/lecture.

Workshops / seminars for managers

For Managers: Training focuses on collaboration across product portfolios and keeping control/ways to monitor and steer in an agile environment and manner. (1 to 3 days)

The 2-day version of this training focuses on the Product Owner work and how to interact with (groups of) Product Owner(s) from a management perspective. It peeks into organizational design to enable agile ways of working and how to (after delegating power) still be able to steer the organization. It contains various fun exercises and games to both convey knowledge and keep everybody engaged and has some capacity for Q&A.

In it’s 3-day version it is similar to the 3-day version for teams and ScMs and Product Owners, also including technical excellence and collaboration aspects.

The not highly recommended 1-day version saves on the exercises and games and is more of a classroom teaching-style/lecture.

Workshops / seminars for non-software development teams

For teams who don’t develop software: Learning how agile practices can be beneficial wherever humans work and solve problems. (1 to 3 days)

In it’s 2-day version, this training is still close to a Certified ScrumMaster training, but leaves out technicalities of software development. There is lots of room for Q&A and to dive deeper into how to concretely help your team(s) apply agile best practices. The training contains various fun exercises and games to both convey knowledge and keep everybody engaged.

The 3-day version of this training becomes workshop-style since it contains sessions that not only convey knowledge: We’ll encourage participants to map out concrete steps to increase the use of agile practices and create/shape the organizational prerequisites for doing so.

Other than for software-development companies- and teams I still recommend the 1-day version of this training. It’s basically a primer on agile, explaining and showcasing why the best practices almost inevitably lead to the benefits of agile, without going too much into detail yet.
