Agile Training and Certification
Agile training from Responsive Advisors is different. Our trainers have strong backgrounds in technology and business, which allows them to teach business agility to executives and Agile practices to developers, all on the same day. Our Scrum training and Scrum certification are backed by Scrum.org, the home of Scrum. Our Agile workshops contain the knowledge and experience that our consultants have accumulated from working with thousands of people on Agile teams throughout the numerous Agile adoptions they have led. Whether you are looking for Scrum training for yourself, Agile training for your team, or training for an Agile adoption in your organization, Responsive Advisors can help you find the answers you are looking for.
Our Scrum foundations training is a great introduction to the Scrum framework for entire teams and organizations. We provide the foundation necessary to implement Scrum effectively and with the most impact. Scrum foundations training is ideal for anyone involved with Scrum teams.
Our advanced Scrum Master training provides a more in-depth look into the principles, values, and theory of Scrum. We address the role and responsibilities of the Scrum Master as a servant leader. Scrum Master training is ideal for anyone responsible for implementing Scrum.
Our Product Owner training explores Agile product management and how it can be applied with Scrum. Product Owner training is ideal for product managers, business analysts, or anyone responsible for maximizing the value of a product.
Our Scrum developer training is for those looking to learn Agile engineering practices and supportive ALM tools to improve a Scrum team's quality and agility. Scrum developer training is ideal for anyone working with Scrum that has some technical knowledge.
Our scaled Scrum training explains how to use Scrum effectively when multiple teams have to work on the same product. Scaled Scrum training explores how the Nexus framework is used to launch, manage, and structure large scale software projects.
Our Agile manager training is for managers and leaders seeking to establish Agile practices in their organization. We equip leaders to form and support Agile teams and be at the forefront of cultural and behavioral shifts necessary for successful Agile adoptions.
We offer private classes for organizations who have one or more teams that will attend training. Private classes can be held at your location and allow us to cater to the needs of your organization.
Public classes are a great fit if you or a few of your colleagues are looking to attend training. We regularly teach Scrum Master and Product Owner classes in Chicago, New York City, and Los Angeles.
What Makes Our Agile Training Different
- Our trainers are experienced Agile practitioners that have years of experience successfully applying Agile practices and leading Agile adoptions.
- We're software developers. Although we don't write as much code as we used to, we have experienced Agile as product developers and can speak to how to use modern development practices to enable business agility.
- We don't just prepare our students for their Agile certification - we equip them to practice Agile and Scrum in the real world.
- We repeatedly receive the highest ratings from our students.
- We actively lead Agile adoptions, so we have relevant, real-world knowledge of what's going on in the industry.
- We're Scrum.org Professional Scrum Trainers, so we understand how Scrum can be used effectively and have experience doing it.
- We read a ton, so our classes are full of relevant, up-to-date content. We're constantly learning more about modern business practices, new management philosophies, contemporary organizational structures, business agility, and Scrum.
Our trainers are Scrum.org Professional Scrum Trainers, ensuring you'll receive the most up-to-date and accurate picture of what Scrum is and how it can be applied to enable business agility.

Some of Our Training Customers...
What Our Customers Are Saying
"Jordan was able to give me the holistic view of Scrum that I was missing even after working with it for years and having attended other training. I left the class excited and confident in my abilities, which is something that I can't say that I've often experienced after a training class. I suppose the truest endorsement of the progress I made was finally having the confidence to take the PSM-II, which I passed with a 92%. If I wind up conquering the PSM-III, I know I’ll have Jordan to thank."
- David de Corlieu
"Jordan did an excellent job covering both the theory and practical aspects of the Scrum approach to software development. In particular, the examples and attending discussion were invaluable in gaining some 'practical' experience with applying the theory in a non threatening, non jeopardy environment. I would (and probably will) happily sign up for another class with Jordan again."
- Chris Jachcinski
"The conversation was very relevant to current companies and industries and the way people approach product delivery from varying perspectives. The instructor's examples were entertaining and applicable. Loved the small class size and open communication. I would definitely recommend this to others at my organization."
- Product Owner
"As an IT manager, it was very helpful to be in the class with my team, my Scrum Master, and my Product Owner. I feel it has given me an opportunity to level set and hit the ground running."
- Manager on Scrum Fundamentals
"The instructor was very knowledgeable, and I really liked all of the experiences he shared during the course. It helped me 'connect the dots' and see how I can apply Scrum in my organization."
