Learners consistently rate this class as one of the best classes they have taken. If for some reason, you are not satisfied with the class, please discuss with me on the first day of the class and we  will strive to make it right for you. If we can not meet your expectations, we will give you your money back.

This is not your typical training where the instructor tells you everything from the podium using a power point presentation. This is an experiential learning workshop where you will experience what you are learning thru carefully designed activities, well-facilitated discussions, some lecture. During this class, you will not only learn from the facilitator, you will also learn from discussing with your peers, co-creating learning materials, teaching your peer group. Join us to participate, practice and learn Scrum.

Come prepared to participate in exercises and discussions. Come prepared to be challenged. Attendees will go back with knowledge and skills that you can start using with your teams and organizations on the next day. Come with a beginners mind: In the beginner’s mind there are many possibilities, in the expert’s mind, there are few. This training will help you see new possibilities and learn techniques to come up with your own solutions for your challenges.
