Professional Agile Coach Training

agile coach trainingFor a successful agile implementation there are three things you need to take into account. First, people will need to learn new practices to be able to frequently deliver high-level product. Second, new working agreements, policies and a new organizational structure is needed so that the focus moves to maximizing value instead of utilization. Third, the people themselves will be asked to work in teams and with teams.

The Professional Agile Coach training is a 2+1 day training that covers the fundamental principles and techniques needed for coaching an agile adoption. The content is based on the book EMERGENT - Lean & Agile adoption for an innovative workplace that is written by Cesario Ramos the trainer for this course.

Certified LeSS Practitioner | Remi Kok

I wanted to thank you again for an inspiring course. It was three long days with a lot of good practices. Loved the discussions and the contribution from Cesario’s experience. I learned that scaling up Scrum is made possible through the LeSS (Huge) Framework without losing the Scrum principles. For me there where a few great eye-openers. Going to use it that's for sure.

Thanks Cesario for a great time.

Professional Scrum Master Training | Jean Kuppers

Great training. Really enjoyed Cesario’s interactive training methods. He did a great job tailoring the content of the course to the needs of the group. I can recommend this training to anyone who wants to understand SCRUM beyond just passing the assessment.

PSPO Training | Marc Maessen

Hele leerzame en inspiratievolle training die aangepast kan worden naar de wens van de cursisten en zo toegespitst wordt op hetgeen het meest gevraagd benodigd is. Cesario is een trainer met een zeer grote schat aan ervaring en kennis en kan daardoor snel en adequaat de situatie anticiperen, de training bijsturen en de theorie aanvullen met real life voorbeelden die hij zelf heeft ondervonden. Zeer waardevolle hulpmiddelen en aftercare toegereikt gekregen en dus al met al uitermate tevreden. Absolute aanrader !!!

2009 - Jos de Bruin Programma Manager at ASR Nederland

Cesario heeft binnen een belangrijk project voor De Amersfoortse de Agile softwareontwikkeling op een zeer goede wijze geïntroduceerd. Cesario heeft enorm veel kennis op dit gebied en nog veel belangrijker, hij wist de teams enthousiast te krijgen voor deze aanpak, en resultaten te boeken.

2010 | Wim van Broekhoven, Manager at PANalytical

Cesario gave good input for the vision to get a LEAN software process adopted that brought our previous SCRUM implementation to a higher level.

During the deployment he coached the organization with respect to the implementation and further improvements. He is capable of convincing management, developers and customer why LEAN should be used. He did this by giving good support to help teams implement it. He is strong in making things tangible so that people understand how to go from principle to practice. This resulted in a way of working which is supported by the developers, which was very difficult in the past.
