Fundamentals of Agile
This two-day ICAgile certified course provides a whirlwind tour of the state of the art in agile processes: agile requirements, forecasting estimation and metrics, Kanban and scrum, human centered design, scaling, DevOps, test automation, and more. Highly interactive and engaging, this training provides an excellent background and preparation for joining an agile team or adopting agile.

Learn about the latest advancements in up-front estimation and forecasting, metrics, and tracking.

Agile Requirements Workshop

Agile Scaling with Scrum and Kanban
Learn about the most popular and proven techniques for scaling up efforts to coordinate multiple agile teams working together and larger-scale initiatives. Covers most popular methods including Kanban Flight Levels, Kanban Maturity Model, Large Scale Scrum, SAFe, Nexus, and Scrum@Scale.


Agile for Leaders and Executives
Learn about what leaders and executives can do to support their agile organizations and lead a successful digital transformation. Understand the key role management plays in supporting agile teams. Learn about management 3.0 and cutting edge facilitation techniques that dramatically improve buy-in and engagement.

Agile Governance and Oversight at Scale
What does agile governance look like? How does it differ from traditional governance? Given the lack of detailed plans up-front, the reduced emphasis on documentation, and the eschewing of traditional metrics such as earned value, one might assume that governance and oversight is more challenging in the agile space. In fact, agile methods offer governance and oversight a wealth of new tools and capabilities, enabling a more proactive and collaborative approach.


Private Classes
Schedule a private class based on the specific requirements, goals, and challenges of your organization. For example, we could combine elements from multiple training classes to support your organization's custom agile processes. We will provide custom training at your site or at one of our NYC or Washington DC based training facilities.
