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.

Interessante training van Cesario Ramos van Agilix. Bij dit type trainingen is de dynamiek en het succes in mijn ogen sterk afhankelijk van deelnemers en trainer. Het deelnemer veld was divers en interessant wat leidde tot goede constructieve discussies en verschillende inzichten op dezelfde problematiek. De facilitatie van Cesario was constructief, uitdagend en de focus lag erop om de oplossing in de groep te vinden. Ik ben met een aantal goede inzichten en contacten weg gegaan, ik kan de training van harte aanraden.

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.

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.
