EDUCATION & TRAINING

Agile N2N offers both public and private classes in subjects that help individuals, teams, and organizations begin or continue their Agile journeys. Each course contains an appropriate mix of education (theory) and training (application).

Private Courses
We recognize that every team and every organization is in a unique environment and has a unique Agile journey. To help these teams and organizations, our private courses may be customized. To do this, we meet with the organization’s Agile sponsors and others to understand the organization’s vision and current state, the course objectives, and the students’ needs.

What our students are saying

The 3 reasons why I would recommend Agile N2N for Agile Training, Coaching and Agile Roll-out are Provides a great baseline level of knowledge about Agile Development in a short period of time (1 day). The material provides practical and actionable information of how Agile can be applied to development teams. The friendly staff at Agile N2N are extremely knowledgeable and experienced in helping clients navigate Agile transformations within their organizations. I would rate the overall training and learning as 9 on a scale of 1-10 , 1 being lowest and 10 being the highest. I only put down a 9/10 due to my earlier comment regarding brain overflow. And a 10 doesn't really exist anyway.

The one-day Agile Boot Camp overall was excellent. … I found the activities very helpful. “Passing the coins” was an excellent activity to emphasize agile concepts. Discussions during the boot camp were helpful in learning more about the agile challenges in the industry today. Instructors were knowledgeable, willing to share information and demonstrated agile practices. I would recommend Agile N2N for Agile Training, Coaching and Agile roll-out based on their staff expertise, the practical experiences they bring forth and their passion for promoting Agile.
