• Agile Testing

    How does your testing keep up with agility? If any of these ring a bell, this course is for you:

    • You want to learn what good agile testing looks like in high performing agile teams
    • You want to know how to increase your value as a "manual tester" within your team
    • You need to improve your skills and approaches to work better in a cross-functional team
    • You can't run all your tests within the sprint

    Management 3.0

    It is the future of management, which is all about doing the right thing for your team, involving everyone in improving the system and fostering employee engagement.

    I offer mentoring, coaching, and workshops on Management 3.0 and Agile Leadership to help you support agility and self-organization.

    Core Agility + Scrum

    Agile is simple but not easy. You must go beyond the events, roles, and practices to succeed - and dive deep into the core principles, contexts, and elements that fuels it.
    Scrum provides the lightweight framework to get started. To sustain agility, however, you must appreciate the principles and values behind the Scrum practices. I can help.

    Agile + UX

    How can agile and user experience work? No - it's not about doing a UX sprint ahead of Dev.

    You need to design for experience within a team context throughout product development. Agile+UX is iteratively designing for minimum testable experiments (vs. minimum viable product) for rapid customer feedback and response!
