We provide corporate tailored Scrum and Agile training. As Scrum is the most popular method in corporate use, most clients select this as their chosen training option. This provides enterprise, team and context specific training in Scrum for product owners, scrum masters and team members.
Han van Loon has over 20 years experience with Agile methods, principles and practices, one of the longer term practitioners in this field. In that time a lot has changed but the principles remain focused. Han van Loon worked for 7 years as Zurich Insurance's global corporate expert in Agile methods, with a focus on Scrum. In this time he trained and coached over 80 teams in the use and optimization of Scrum. His other clients include Farmers Life Insurance, Schindler, CelsiusTech Australia, SAAB Systems, UBIS, and Volker Infra Noaber18. He recently reached a century of Scrum training courses delivered.
The product owner training can be run over 2 days (standard training) or 3 days (extended with advanced techniques). Usually the 3 day training uses a corporate project as the example for developing the product owner techniques and products required to successfully launch a Scrum project.
The scrum master training usually runs for 2 days and covers all the topics in the courses taught by Jeff Sutherland (see Scrum-mastercoach: Agile and Scrum links).
Every client has unique as well as common needs. Both Agile and Scrum training should adapt to the client needs so that enterprise culture and practices are recognized and incorporated when beneficial.
For example, when introducing Agile into an organization for the first time, there is a need to set perceptions of what Agile is, how to introduce it into the corporate culture so that clashes are minimized and advantages are multiplied. Agile introduction courses can be run in as little as 2 hours. Han van loon has performed Agile Introduction training for well over 120 teams and managers.
Han van Loon has worked with corporate clients in 15 countries with a wide variety of corporate cultures that provide opportunities for optimization.This is done agilely, first by discussion with the client sponsor and then by interaction with course participants, to shape the training as needed. This also provides a foundation for any subsequent coaching to embed the learned practices within the team and shape their performance to produce superior results.
