Standard Certification Program

Our on-site training programs offer every team the opportunity to use real-life project cases to develop a better understanding of the course concepts. The group selects an existing project/product/program and applies the techniques and concepts of Agile and Scrum during the session to that project. This has been proven to be the most effective way of learning, and it helps team members apply the concepts immediately in their day-to-day work.

We offer the following certification programs as part of our on-site training sessions:

  • Integrated Scrum Course – A comprehensive single course for both Scrum Masters and Product Owners.
  • Leading SAFe 5.0 – A course for executives, leaders, managers, and architects in an organization that is either implementing SAFe or thinking about it.
  • SAFe Scrum Master A course for those currently playing the role of Scrum Master in a SAFe environment or those who are looking to explore similar opportunities.
  • SAFe Product Owner/Product Manager – A course exclusively for Product Owners and Product Managers in a SAFe environment.
  • SAFe for Teams – A course for all of the members of a delivery team in a SAFe environment.
  • SAFe for Government – A specific course for a government organization implementing SAFe.
  • SAFe ASE A course exclusively for the technical members of the team in a SAFe environment.

Custom Workshops and Training Programs

There is an inevitable need for most organizations to go with a value-driven and flexible approach to Agile. The journey to becoming Agile has its own challenges, which can include resistance to cultural changes or inadequate experience in the Agile fundamentals. Along with some common challenges, each organization has unique challenges that cannot be completely resolved using Standard Training Programs. To address the specific challenges of each organization, we create customized workshops or training programs for the organizations we work with.

Here’s our process for collaborating with your organization:

  • Acquire information on your teams and the projects they are working on.
  • Find out the current impediments and roadblocks that the team (or organization as a whole) is facing.
  • Design a personalized workshop based on our research.
  • Schedule the workshop (usually 1-2 days) based on the group’s availability.
  • Offer ongoing guidance (either virtual or on-site) to implement the new strategies and tactics discussed in the class.

Here are some of the workshops that we could develop for your organization:

  • Business Agile for Managers and Other Key Stakeholders
  • Scaling Agile for Large Projects
  • Agile Software Development Practices and Underlying Principles
  • How to Align Corporate Goals with Project Team Deliverables
  • Practical Knowledge of the Entire Scrum framework, including Vision, Release Planning, Agile Requirements, Agile Estimation, and Sprints
  • Continuous Integration and Working as a Team toward a Common Enterprise Goal
  • Test-Driven Development
  • Facilitating Team Retrospective Meetings and Making them More Engaging 
  • Product Backlog Grooming and Prioritization Techniques
  • Conducting Major Steps Required to Start a Software Product Development Process and Continuously Deliver Value

The content was very good. The material is easy to follow. The quizzes are helpful to reinforce the teachings and stimulate discussions to ensure a good understanding of concepts. Perhaps a type of course tailored to the needs of embedded systems should be considered.
