Succeeding with Agile

Succeeding with Agile

Succeeding with Agile is two days of advanced agile project management training that picks up where the Certified ScrumMaster course and other intro to agile courses leave off. Drawing and expanding on concepts in Mike Cohn's "Succeeding with Agile" book, this course will help you move beyond initial success to sustained agility. Attendees should have a solid understanding of agile concepts, and principles and practices of Scrum prior to tackling this course.

I recommend all of Mike’s courses to colleagues unreservedly, and specifically point them to Succeeding With Agile when they’ve been doing scrum for a while and are starting to hit the next wall of organizational impediments that naturally follow early adoption.
