Refine how you refine with expert Professional Scrum Trainers. Have you ever left a training course excited to implement the things you have learned, only to be met with resistance or more questions on how to apply the concepts? In this workshop we take classroom concepts and apply them to your actual Product Backlog.
We’ve observed that product backlog refinement remains a mystery for many Scrum teams and we want to help you solve that mystery. This workshop is practical, not just conceptual. You will leave with a transformed Product Backlog.
You will leave this workshop with a transformed Product Backlog after experiencing how to apply the following:
This workshop is ideal for a Product Owner and team members or representatives. The workshop can accommodate 1 to 15 people working from the same Product Backlog. This is not a course with generic concepts but a workshop in which we will be guiding you as you make changes to your actual Product Backlog.
I work with all levels of the organization to optimize your business to respond to change. I am passionate about moving organizations and people closer to agility.
My first experience with “agile”, Scrum specifically, was in 2005. I was part of a global transformation team responsible for software customizations driven by a global consolidation of accounting software. We ran into typical implementation challenges and organizational impediments.
Around 2012, my passion for lean, agile, and continuous improvement grew. I left my traditional business analyst and project manager roles behind and evolved into an internal change agent kickstarting an agile transformation. Now in an advising role as an external change agent across many organizations, I promote organizational agility and positive pressure for change.
I am a speaker, trainer, and agile coach. I have been a Product Owner, Scrum Master and Development Team member. I have worked with enterprise companies to small start-ups. While working with many teams across many companies I have found that most problems are not technology problems, but are organizational structure, process, and people problems. As a trainer I bring storytelling, a broad array of experience, and collaborative approach to teaching.
I take a practical approach to teaching and coaching organizations how to respond to change and gain organizational agility. I love teaching and using Scrum, but use many other tools in the agile toolbox when the situation calls for it.
