Scrum Training

Scrum training for your team in Tallinn, or another place in Estonia, at a customer’s premises or a rented venue. It might also be done as a part of the team off-site event.

There is also a possibility for online training. However, in-person trainings are usually more engaging and effective.

The preferred language is English.

It’s rare that you come across a standout talent like Julia. I was particularly impressed by Julia’s ability to communicate and educate people in Agile Ways of working. The way she handles groups, it seemed to come perfectly naturally to her. Her energy is contagious and it is impossible not to feel energized after meeting her.

Thank you very much for your effort to train 20 people from IT cross-functional team about Agile principles and Scrum. We had a really valuable training with an interactive approach. Specially big thanks for those beautiful worksheets made by yourself! I really liked also the energy and calmness you brought to the audience, and you didn’t “oversell” yourself.  So overall – a spectacular experience I would definitely recommend to other teams also.
