Education Offerings

  • SAFe Advanced Scrum Master (SASM) Course - (11/03 - 11/05)  - This course prepares current Scrum Masters for their leadership role in facilitating Agile team, program, and enterprise success in a Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe®) implementation. It covers facilitation of cross-team interactions in support of program execution and relentless improvement. It also offers actionable tools for building high-performing teams and explores practical ways of addressing Agile and Scrum anti-patterns.
 
 
  • Effective Communications with DISC - (11/18)  -  Communication is largely an art, but applying the science of DISC increases effectiveness and takes some of the mystery out of the process. People can seem very similar, but of course, we are all very different. This is also true to our behaviour. While one person can be direct and enthusiastic, another can be quiet and hesitant. In this workshop, you will learn the science of behaivoural styles, which is the foundation that influences other aspects of our existence.
 
 
  • Mindful Readiness to Manage Change and Uncertainty Presentation - (12/10)  - Change and uncertainty are facts of life. Managing skillfully and responsively in the face of them is critical to success. In this presentation we describe cognitive readiness – being ready for anything - and its importance to effective project, program, and portfolio management. We explore the need to blend mindful awareness and process thinking with the skillful application of traditional technical skills, communication skills and business acumen. 
  • Scrum in 1 Day Workshop - (1/16/21)  - Are you new to agile? Does your team currently practice Scrum, and you want to more effectively apply the framework? This workshop is for anyone who wants to learn about and or improve their agile practice. Becoming an agile servant leader requires different ways of thinking. 
 
  • Mindful Readiness to Manage Change and Uncertainty Workshop - (1/21/21; 1/28/21; 2/4/21; 2/11/21)  - Change and uncertainty are facts of life. Managing skillfully and responsively in the face of them is critical to success. In this workshop we explore cognitive readiness – being ready for anything. To be ready for anything, we blend mindful awareness and process thinking with the skillful application of traditional technical skills, communication skills and business acumen. 
     
  • PMI-ACP Certification Exam Prep Class (2/11/21 - 2/13/21)  - The PMI-ACP is PMI's fastest growing certification, and it's no wonder. Organizations that are highly agile and responsive to market dynamics complete more of their projects successfully than their slower-moving counterparts. The PMI-ACP spans many approaches to agile such as Scrum, Kanban, Lean, eXtreme programming (XP) and test-driven development (TDD), so it will increase your versatility wherever your projects may take you.
