Agile Training Framework

Scrum is an Agile framework. Sometimes people lose the purpose of Agile and tend to focus on rigid rules and meetings when doing Agile Scrum. The core purpose of Agile Scrum is to do a small portion of work, demo it, get feedback, and adapt based on the feedback at the core of the inspect and adapt loop. Our courses will provide practical knowledge – “How To” and real project examples for you so you can help your organization have a smoother agile transformation by addressing the true Agile Scrum purpose.

The focus of the training is to provide insight into Lean, Agile, and Scrum to show how the Scrum framework contributes to Agile practices. You will also learn Agile techniques, such as how to prioritize requirements, writing simple effective user stories, how to elicit and document requirements with user stories and how to guide your stakeholders throughout the project.

All our agile training programs are developed based on our “Agile Training Competency Model” to identify the end-to-end enterprise needs. We worked with multi-national enterprises to benchmark the agile roles and then developed agile training programs.

 

 

LeanAgileScrum Institute is the first agile training organization in the world to conduct agile job benchmarking for each agile role, created four assessments, developed supplementary courses and integrated the assessments into agile training programs.

Continuous Learning

Continuous learning is about the constant expansion of skills through learning to increase practical agile knowledge.

Training and professional designation alone cannot prepare you to do the job. There is a level of qualification that must be achieved.

This is where our Continuous Learning Program begins. Our Continuous Learning Program focuses on the results of training through practical application.

How does Continuous Learning work?

You will automatically be enrolled for the continuous learning program once you complete your professional diploma (PD) designation.

Access to Live-Online Agile eWorkshop and eCoaching Videos:

Our agile eWorkshops include access to our team and experts. You will have the opportunity to ask any questions related to the Agile landscape. These live workshops will happen once or twice a month. These workshops will address the changes taking place in the marketplace and how we can adapt to them as a collective.

eCoaching videos answer the most frequently asked questions posed by our Students and participants. One of our agile practitioners will answer the question and send it out to our students. These videos will be sent out on an on-demand basis.
