Corporate Scrum Trainings

Our trainings are highly interactive which allows the attendees to feel and get a hand-on experience of the concepts.

The program “Scrum for Software Teams and Customers” will train your teams and customer representatives to apply the Scrum framework to build an Agile process.

In 2009, Alexey Krivitsky, the SCRUMguides founder and one of the Scrum trainers, invented the Scrum Simulation with LEGO. By now, this is one of the most popular Scrum simulations worldwide, translated to more than 10 languages. Usually we run the simulation as a part of our two-day corporate class.
