The advanced certification will differentiate you, but more importantly the deep learning will allow you to interview with confidence and apply advanced techniques in the work place.

Go Beyond Scrum

As an advanced class we go beyond Scrum and cover how to grow with practices from other agile frameworks:

  • XP and DevOps: Engineering practices to continuously deliver quality.
  • SAFe®, LeSS® Scrum@Scale®: Align multiple teams on one endeavor.
  • Kanban: Limit WIP, increase focus and create flow.
  • Lean: Apply the mindset from the mother of agile.
  • Lean Startup®: Apply build-measure-learn loops to improve outcomes.

Don't stop at Scrum. Come to this session and learn how to apply ideas from a variety of frameworks.

Practice Quizzes?

Yes, practice quizzes.

There is no exam for your certification, but you can still get significant benefit from our practice quizzes as they help ensure you know the basics so your classroom experience can focus on the big picture.

  • The practice quizzes are active learning that increases retention.
  • They apply what cognitive science calls retrieval practice.
  • Retrieval practice makes learning challenging which helps you remember the material.

If you have time prior to the session use them as a refresher. Or perhaps, during the session you notice some weak spots and review the quizzes post class to fill in the knowledge gaps.

Immersive classroom exercises...

We use technologies including Miro, Mural, Google Slides, Google Jam Boards and others to create an interactive training experience.

You use these technologies in breakout rooms with class peers, learning Scrum and Agile hands on.
