No matter what your current level of understanding of Lean-Agile (beginning to expert), I offer training (with or without certification) in Lean-Agile subjects. Training is aimed at establishing the basic knowledge you need to have in a particular subject area. In addition, successful training results in benefits for:

  • Individuals: Training result in changes in behavior of the people attending. This means they will be more effective in the new Lean-Agile environment.
  • Organizations: A consistent set of training across the enterprise can help establish standards of terminology and understanding which aids in the transformation of an organization.

The training can be provided on-site or, as is more common today, remotely using virtual on-line tools (e.g. video conferencing such as Zoom or Teams) and online content tools (e.g. Mural and Kahoot.) In either case the training is engaging and interactive.

The following list shows some of the traditional training organizations would leverage as part of a transformation to Lean-Agile. In addition, I have standard and custom subject-specific workshops.

“Train” is common (SAFe) language for a setup where a Team of Teams work together to deliver value.
