This one day Agile Overview Course provides everything you need to introduce your development team and support staff to Agile ways of working.
We offer specific Scrum courses for Scrum Masters, Product Owners and Software Developers. This Agile Overview Course helps everyone else involved in the effort know what to expect when a company or department “Goes Agile”.
Rocket Nine Solutions’ courses are taught interactively. No long boring lectures. You’ll find yourself moving, talking, having fun, discussing, and learning with the others in your course.
