Our Agile training in Chicago provides a pragmatic mix of theory and practical skills to ensure our students are prepared to practice Scrum in the real world. Our Chicago instructors have broad backgrounds in technology and deep experience with applying Agile practices and Scrum as developers, Scrum Masters, and Agile consultants. They draw on that experience in the classroom to ensure students not only understand Agile principles and Scrum but also how to pragmatically apply them.
Training for Teams
For organizations who have one or more teams that will attend training, we offer a wide selection of private Agile and Scrum classes that allow us to cater to the needs of your organization. These classes can be held at our Chicago Loop office, at your location, or at an off-site venue.
Training for Individuals
Public classes are a great fit if you or a few of your colleagues are looking to attend training. We regularly host Professional Scrum Master and Professional Scrum Product Owner classes in our Chicago office.
Our Public Agile Training in Chicago
Professional Scrum Master
Our advanced Scrum Master training provides a more in-depth look into the principles, theories, and values of Scrum. We address the role and responsibilities of the Scrum Master as a servant leader and how to put Scrum into practice in an organization. Scrum Master training is ideal for anyone responsible for implementing Scrum. We prepare attendees for the industry-recognized Scrum certification, the PSM I from Scrum.org.
Professional Scrum Product Owner
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 software product. In addition to giving Product Owners tools they can use in their day jobs, we also prepare attendees for the industry-recognized Product Owner certification, the PSPO I from Scrum.org.
WHAT TO EXPECT IN AGILE TRAINING
Our public courses are highly interactive and nothing like those large lecture hall classes that put you to sleep in college. We have a mix of group discussions, lectures and activities to keep you engaged the entire time. All of our trainers have a wide array of real-world agile experience so we can answer your questions. Our coaching doesn’t stop there. We even provide office hours to help you after the course has finished.
The class is open to everyone and there are no formal prerequisites required. The only prep we recommend is simply reading the provided scrum guide before class so you can make the most out of it.
Because our instructors are certified Professional Scrum Trainers from Scrum.org, the home of Scrum, you know your Scrum training will be the most up-to-date and accurate picture of what Scrum is and how to apply it.

Easily Accessible by Car and Public Transit

JOIN US AT OUR CHICAGO AGILE MEETUP
We started The People Side of Software Meetup because we believe people are at the core of building amazing products. Too many events focus exclusively on the fancy frameworks or latest technology and ignore the most critical aspect of a successful agile team… the people.
Our meetup is focused on helping you and the community be better with the people side of software and as a result, build better products. We’d love to see you at one of our upcoming events!
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.
Responsive Advisors is a proud member of Scrum.org's Professional Training Network (PTN).
