Our courses contain a mixture of classroom and experiential training methods.

  • Product Owner (two day) – aimed at potential or new Product Owners, Business Analysts or Subject Matter Experts who need to know how to lead their SCRUMs and ensure that they deliver the functionality & benefits that they expect.  This course covers the whole process in a practical way using relevant exercises, videos and discovery discussions.
  • Advanced Agile skills (one day) – aimed at more experienced SCRUM Masters & Product Owners, this course uses simulation & experiential/role playing methods to cover people management skills in SCRUM.  Typical topics include Stress Management, Conflict, Communications, Negotiation, Empowerment, Team Development and Leadership
