Agile Training for Teams and Specific Roles: Scrum, Kanban, and More

Net Objectives has the most comprehensive and effective approach to preparing teams for the transition to Agile methods. While most Agile training companies focus on the Scrum Master, we focus on the enterprise. Our enterprise training enables your teams to transition to effectiveness. We also offer Lean-Agile Project Manager Certification courses, Lean Scrum Master Certification when appropriate.

A note on our team focus: We don’t believe the correct approach to creating effective Agile teams is to provide a Certified Scrum Master course to the team. To our mind, this is akin to teaching a team to play football by teaching everyone how to be a football coach. Instead, you need to teach the team to play football, and have one person be trained as the coach. We do provide a Lean-Agile Project Manager certification, we strongly feel this training should be given to those who will be coaches, not as a substitute for appropriate training for the team members.

Why we offer such a broad range of training. Most Agile training companies offer only Scrum based methods. While Scrum has a good track record of success at the team level, it's success rate at the enterprise level leaves much to be desired. Much of this limited success is due to the fact that different challenges face different organizations. Everyone agrees a one-size fits all approach won't work, yet many companies offer just one size. At Net Objectives, we offer flow-based (Lean), Kanban, Scrumban and Scrum as team based methods.

Regardless of the method we recommend, however, we always take an enterprise view. We believe even when working on the team you must pay attention to the context the team is in. This is why all of our training is done within the context of Lean-Thinking. Our results with large (1000+) and medium sized (100-1000) organizations have demonstrated much faster adoption and sustainable results by assisting teams to select the right process for them. This requires a high-level vision with a bottom up implementation within the context of the vision. This is considerably different from a bottom-up, team-centric approach. It is one where the entire organization is considered: business, management, team and technical.
