Everyone!  This course introduces Agile basics and explores the ScrumMaster role.  This is not a technical course, so whether you work in an IT or non-IT department, you will come away with a strong foundational knowledge of Scrum. 

Specific roles who would benefit from this workshop include:
Product and line managers, Project managers, technical leads, developers, testers, business analysts, and anyone interested in learning more about Scrum and Agile methods.

Industry Leader, Podcaster, Trainer, Coach, Consultant

A Certified Scrum Trainer and early adopter of Extreme Programming, Scrum and SAFe, Bob Payne has worked exclusively as a Lean+Agile Transformation leader since 1999. He hosts the Agile Toolkit podcast and has produced over 170 podcasts, recording a variety of industry leaders and Agile practitioners.

Bob’s consulting and training style is built on years of Lean+Agile experience, a MSEE in Computer Architectures for Artificial Intelligence, and having grown up working in his family’s restaurant, so you can expect a blend of technical excellence and customer service.  Read more about Bob at

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. 

Learn how to lead development teams towards agile operations by managing product backlogs, planning releases and sprints, tracking and reporting progress, and conducting retrospectives.   

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.
