SCALE YOUR AGILE PRACTICE
HOW TO SCALE
Demingway offers the online courses, labs and assesments that give people and teams the agile skills, mindset, and coaching they need to build careers they love, doing meaningful work for companies who value their customers and its employees alike, and whose teams seek to bring product to market with increasing velocity.
We recommend you start your learning journey with these two courses. They are free:
From Fortune 100 companies to start-ups, Scrum@Scale® transforms organizations into Agile enterprises. The Scrum@Scale framework is the brainchild of Dr. Jeff Sutherland, the co-creator of Scrum and the founder of Scrum Inc.
Scrum@Scale naturally extends the core Scrum framework to deliver hyper-productive results across industries and disciplines, including software, hardware, services, operations, and R&D.
In our 2-day course, you will learn how to apply fundamental Scrum and Lean product development skills to scale Scrum from one to many teams across any sized initiative.
Workshops & Coaching
Our workshops arei adaptive in both the agile and the platform sense of the word: Prior to attending a course or workshop in person we encourage learners to take a module online. The module is aligned with the training content, teaches necessary skills, and serves as a diagnostic of current skills and team state. Post training, an additional module serves as reinorcement and review, and offers a post-assessment from which learning gains can be measured. Following the in-person training additional online modules provide a rubric for teams to improve business outcomes.
