Corporate and Enterprise Customized Introduction to Real Agility Private Training

This 2-day introductory class will provide a high­-level understanding of Agile, Scrum and Kanban, with a focus on the principles and the human aspect of working with an Agile mindset. It includes some key terminology, the main drivers and challenges associated with Agile, a cursory view of Scrum, Kanban and Lean methods, and some of the core concepts behind Agile thinking.

Praise for Our Introduction to Real Agility Training

The instructor had a deep understanding of the material, (of) team dynamics and organizational challenges. This made the course compelling and the material relevant. I enjoyed the day and feel more comfortable with the key principles and agile terminology.

Solution Consultant, May 2019

Excellent trainer, very interesting and I enjoyed the activities, it really helped me understand the benefits of the agility framework and what the difference is of Kanban vs Scrum.

Technical Consultant, May 2019

I'm very pleased with the training I've got. Forbes is very experienced and knowlegeable coach. I could see that this is a result of his life experience as developer, lead, scrum master...

Developer, May 2019

I have used Berteig for my own individual learning and certifications. I was so thoroughly impressed that I decided to utilize them to deliver training to my team. My team was able to immediately begin applying what they learned in class with great impact and success. I highly recommend Berteig for their knowledge and professionalism.

Its been my first formal agile training and it was clear, precise and useful. Loved it.

Digital Designer, October 2018

The course and trainer was fantastic.

Manager, October 2018

Instructor had useful analogies to bring Agile to life. He delivered the content by living the model on the wall, by showing progress and status at all times. He employed a variety of learning approaches (conversation, interactive games, questions and answers) that made the two days consistently interesting.

Managing Director, April 2018

David is an excellent, knowledgeable coach and trainer. The materials and activities were excellent. Loved the many exercises that illustrated the points very well, and kept the group energy up.
