Scrum for Managers, Leaders, and Executives
Boring is the enemy of learning. That’s why we created our Stakeholder Workshop, which is perfect for anyone with a vested interest in the product of a Scrum team. It can be a challenge to understand how a Scrum team is working, why they are using new words like "Sprint" and "Backlog", and most importantly how you can support them in their work.
This workshop is a fun and interactive way to help stakeholders learn the basics of Scrum - what it is, why it works, and how you can get involved. We focus on the essentials you need to help ensure the teams you're working with get the input and engagement from you that they need to deliver a product that you'll love.
Training for Your Team
We offer private classes for organizations that have one or more teams that will attend training. Private classes can be held online or at your location, allowing us to cater to your organization's needs.
Training for You
Public classes are a great fit if you or a few of your colleagues are looking to attend training. We regularly teach public Scrum Master classes in Chicago, New York City, Seattle, and Los Angeles.
