    One of the First, Best Scrum Trainers

    ARLEN BANKSTON was at the vanguard of the agile movement, beginning to practice within two years of the Agile Manifesto’s writing.  He co-founded and leads one of the premier agile consultancies in the Washington, DC metro area (LitheSpeed LLC), and was among the first to explicitly blend lean systems thinking and user experience practices with agile software development practices.  An active executive for over 17 years, he continues to coach, speak, train and mentor to stay at the edge of ever-advancing lean and agile practices.

    The Most Practical Stories

    Most courses teach you just enough to pass the CSM test.  We do that too (in fact, we guarantee it), but view the certification as secondary to a comprehensive grasp of not just Scrum’s philosophy, but its real-world applications across different organizational scenarios. This includes applying Scrum outside of software development to business functions such as HR, marketing and sales, as well as in non-traditional environments like education and household management.

    We have led full-scale organizational transformations at many scales and in many situations: from Fortune 100 commercial businesses to government agencies; heavily regulated organizations to gaming companies; small non-profits to individuals applying the practices at home. This current, practical experience yields stories that resonate, rather than recitation of rote theory.

    The Richest, Most Thrilling Experience

    Our course was crafted from the ground up to be invigorating and memorable. This means no dry Comic Sans Powerpoint presentations and droning lectures. 

    We have:

    Awesome exercises – You will play with gaming dice, throw balls around, experience physical improv-inspired simulations, listen to music and more. There is rarely a dull moment, but neither is the pace exhausting.

    Invigorating lecture – Arlen is known as a top speaker around the world, and has presented keynotes at major conferences. An ex-musician and singer, he understands how to hold an audience (and when to move on).

      Truly great food – Fresh, hand-cooked food by an executive chef for both breakfast and  lunch. It may seem a minor thing, but you’ll be smiling when you’re eating slow-cooked braised short rib barbecue or kale salad with roasted nuts instead of another cold, dry sandwich.

    Uniquely practical takeaways – From beautifully designed full-color printed and digital materials to custom-designed games for your team, practice exams and quick-start guides, we give you more useful freebies than almost anyone else. 





    A Company That Does It All

    All CSM courses are taught by Trainers approved by the Scrum Alliance. Taking a CSM course, passing the CSM test, and accepting the license agreement designates you as a Certified ScrumMaster, which indicates that you have been introduced to and understand the basic concepts you need to perform as a ScrumMaster or team member on a Scrum team. This course also satisfies two elements of the CSD track: Scrum Introduction and Elective.
