Agile Trainings

Part of our mission is to assist nonprofits in increasing their capacity to use agile principles and the Scrum framework to increase the efficiency of their organization in creating maximum impact in their communities. To achieve this, we offer in-person workshops and webinars to nonprofit organizations.

These workshops are offered both in person and via webinar and are typically structured so they:

  • Are small group or classroom-size workshops designed to enhance the skills of the participants; and
  • Provide tactical learning to assist in the adoption of Agile principles and the Scrum framework; and
  • Provide participants with handouts and materials, including case studies, to help facilitate their organization’s Agile transformation.

This was everything I needed and more. So many webinars end up actually only being for one level of knowledge, and the presenter did a great job of catering to people within different types of organizations and with different types of teams. As someone who has worked with several nonprofits who have issues with silos and processes and procedure refinement, this proved to be an interesting new look for me at ways we could improve the way we work as a team.

Webinar Attendee

My nonprofit is small so I wear many of the hats of the roles discussed but this SCRUM approach to completing grants will help me better organize all that is needed and hopefully keep me from burning the midnight oil to meet deadlines. Thank you!

She was great. I view a lot of webinars that are only ok, and she is a fantastic presenter. Very intelligent, and got me excited about a whole new set of professional goals around scrum/agile. Love it.

I loved the interjections of concepts and practices to show us a number of ways to bring these concepts back to our teams
