Scrum was just a word, but after this class it is now a way of doing business.
Our Values are Central
We bring humanity to the workplace by helping individuals and organizations achieve their true potential by levering the strengths of Agile values and principles. We support your transformation journey by focusing on these important set of values.
Integrity :: Our team is highly respected in their Agile communities with over 70 years of collective transformation experience. Our trainers coach and our coaches train. We continuously test and apply the theory of the class room to real world challenges. We live what we teach.
Creativity :: We focus on the never ending challenge of coming up with new ideas and tools we can use to help our customers achieve their transformation outcomes.
Commitment :: Instead of sales calls, we make discovery calls. We spend time getting to know our customer’s needs and their objectives. We are committed to your vision – not an out of the box solution.
Honesty :: We never “bait and switch”. Our coaches are involved in the sales process from the discovery phase through execution. Our coaches are the best we can offer. We never give you less.
Openness :: If we don’t believe we can help, we won’t accept the engagement. Likewise, if your journey takes a drastic change, we’ll support that new direction leveraging our best creative abilities. If we can’t help, we’ll recommend someone we are confident can. After all, each customer must own their own unique Agile transformation story.
If you’d like to engage in a discovery call, contact us at email@example.com we’d love to uncover ways to help your organization along your Agile journey.
