I learned more about Scrum (and at scale) in three days than in the last three years – even though I am an agile trainer/coach. On top of that, it was great fun. Bas is an excellent teacher. The things you learn on this course are immediately applicable in daily practice. – LeSS course review
We have the right people, expertise and support to make Lean & Agile adoptions successful.

AWA Support Network
We recognise that organisational change is highly contextual and being a change agent is a difficult and sometimes lonely role. In response to this challenge, we have created the free to join AWA Support Network (ASN) to support Agilists in their day-to-day work within a confidential and secure space.
Independent of consultancy, client, tool and framework, the ASN offers contextual help to other members. Every member is picked based on their contribution to the community, Agile and Lean body of knowledge, and ongoing commitment to support and engage with the rest of the network.
This gives a safe and confidential place to ask contextual questions and receive answers and to share your expertise. It also provides our consultants and clients with a huge resource to draw upon in any given situation.
If you are interested in joining the network, please email email@example.com for more details.
