Programs for Becoming Agile at the Individual, Team,
Leadership and Organizational Levels

Our mission is lofty, but simple; it is to enhance an organization’s competitive advantage—its distinctive value to its customers–while eliminating human suffering from their workplace—from the front lines to the C-suite. We do this by offering agile-driven and reality-based education and coaching to teams and leaders of organizations of any kind, any size, and at any station in some larger hierarchy.

Toward this end, we have developed a variety of offerings that are based on our whole-system approach and our personal experience putting the concepts and theories into pragmatic use in real life:


We Can Help.

Scrum Education, Certification and Coaching

Our Scrum Education & Certification, and Coaching program teaches those who develop your organization’s product(s) about the principles and values on which Agile is based. They will also learn how the Scrum framework operates and the change it will drive in their roles and responsibilities as operators of that framework.

We offer two Scrum curriculums. One is designed to Scrum Alliance specifications and will make qualified participants eligible for Scrum Alliance certifications. The other, while including all of the same lessons, can be tailored to the needs of your organization, but will not result in eligibility for Scrum Alliance certifications. In addition, we also offer coaching from seasoned veterans for whole Scrum Teams, Product Owners, Scrum Masters, and Development Teams.

We also offer coaching in the application of the principles, concepts, methods and tools embodied in Dr. Jeff Sutherland’s Scrum@Scale, and Craig Larman and Bas Vodde’s Large Scale Scrum, or LeSS, frameworks.

Of course, we also offer coaching to assist you with employing Agile in your FDA regulated and QMS governed environment.

Agile Leadership, Organizational Agility Education and Coaching

We offer a number of executive level classes and coaching options to teach your organization’s leadership the “what,” “why” and “how” of Agile adoption at the team, leadership and organizational levels.

Perhaps most importantly, leadership will learn about the changes that Agile adoption will necessarily require in their roles and responsibilities, and, because they are the stewards of the organization’s culture, they will also learn the cultural change they will need to lead to ensure Agile’s successful inculcation.

Our Whole-System Agile Adoption program will lift yours from those organizations whose stunted aspirations have them “doing Agile,” and into the higher orbit of those who are “being Agile.”
