Our training courses are all highly interactive, using games, exercises and Liberating Structures.

The training courses typically consist of 1 or more modules with a duration of 3.5 hours.

These modules fit nicely into a morning, afternoon or evening.

Course material is in English; the training can be done in English or Dutch.

Scrum Master

We offer a Scrum Master training for people with a basic or intermediate experience level in Scrum. The standard version consists of 4 modules. Depending on your needs we can tailor this. The ideal group size is between 8 and 16 participants.

Topics include the Agile Manifesto and principles, the Scrum values, the Scrum pillars & empiricism, Cynefin, Scrum roles, events and artifacts. For advanced groups we dive into coaching, mentoring, and facilitation techniques.

The course content is presented as an options board, giving participants control over the options. There is also time reserved to answer specific concerns or questions the participants have; these are collected on a parking lot.

Optionally we can prepare you for a PSM I or PSM II certification. Please note that we do not yet have any Professional Scrum Trainers, so this is not an official Scrum.org endorsed training course. We do however have a good track record.

Product Owner

Our Product Owner training puts the work of the Product Owner into practice straight away. Participants are asked to share their learning objectives. These objectvies are turned into an ordered backlog for the course, during which the participants assign value and the trainer assings a size estimate. This already provides the basic knowledge for the Product Owner role.

The standard version consists of 4 modules. Depending on your needs we can tailor this. The ideal group size is between 8 and 12 participants.

Topics include the Agile Manifesto and principles, the Scrum values, the Scrum pillars & empiricism, Scrum roles, events and artifacts, and refinement. There is emphasis on the Product Owner role and events in which the Product Owner plays an important part.

Optionally we can prepare you for a PSPO I certification. Please note that we do not yet have any Professional Scrum Trainers, so this is not an official Scrum.org endorsed training course. We do however have a good track record.

 

Modern Refinement

Good refinement is a collaborative practice that is key to succesful teams. The Scrum guide gives very little guidance, and we see many teams implementing this as a very inefficient refinement meeting. In this training the participants learn several refinement practices and different ways to organize the refinement process. Using a combination of a fictional case and facilitated group work with Liberating Structures, there is room to apply theory as well as discuss your own refinement issues.

This course consists of 3 modules. The ideal group size is between 8 and 12 participants.

Topics include Context Setting, Rich Pictures, Example Mapping, Personas, Gherkin & Rulespeak.

Agile Measurement

Agility is often based on empiricism, which means measuring stuff that matters. But which stuff matters? How do you measure it? Who is allowed to use it? What are common metrics in an Agile environment? And which metrics are dangerous or counterproductive?

This is a measurement training course unlike any you’ve seen before. You’ll be measuring from the word go, and experience every facet of measurement definition, collection, reporting and analysis. The course matereial seemlessly combines “old” practices such as PSM and G/Q/M with “new”practices from Agile, Scrum, Kanban and Lean Startup.

This course consists of 2 modules. The ideal group size is between 8 and 12 participants.
