About this Program

• About
Unlike a traditional class, this is a coaching-based program, allowing personalized attention.
The underlying philosophy in this program is that you learn by doing, and you use ‘designed scenarios’ as simulations to go through the ‘motions’ of analyzing and designing your strategy.
In line with this philosophy, our program is delivered in a ‘blended format’ – online video calls, offline activities, and team activities. We also conduct Townhall style discussions to provide you ongoing support. Hence, this program is loaded with Activities and Simulations. You will also be introduced to and asked to use various worksheets and Games as offline activities with your team.
Essentially, this program expands on the Certified ScrumMaster™ (CSM) certification to provide Scrum Masters and agile leaders with practical tools and skills designed to enhance their effectiveness in teams and organizations.
We are here to help you!
Let us help you unleash the BEST in You!
