Why a BigVisible Course?
BigVisible focuses on one thing: enabling organizational agility. As coaches, we understand the challenges organizations face at all phases of their agile implementations: from team-level execution and delivery, to higher-level strategy, governance, and leadership. We know that for an organization to achieve agility, people at all levels must understand agile principles and be educated about agile processes like Scrum.
Our foundational training courses are firmly rooted in the core agile principles and practices you need to achieve success, regardless of your ultimate role in the organization. In addition to this quality training, BigVisible offers comprehensive coaching services, so if you get stuck or find that you need more help applying what you’ve learned, you can call on us.
Find out more about us, our point of view, and our approach to transformation and organizational agility by visiting our blog and website. There you will find in-depth discussions, blogs, videos, and resources to help you get a sense of who we are, what we’ve done for others, and how we can help you.
