Evolve Agility’s CSPO Course is a two day immersive learning experience that enables participants to make a difference in the real world of work.

Learning by doing

NO POWERPOINT! – Hands on, interactive, and fun!

Scrum is easy to understand, but difficult to master. Therefore, we don’t use dry lectures. Learning new skills requires experiential environment where you can practice your newly acquired skills. More importantly learning happens when you are having fun!

This course is based on techniques from Accelerated Learning and in particular principles and concepts from Training from The Back of the Room. Our participants experience Scrum concepts and principles through case-studies, games, simulations, group discussions, and role-playing exercises.

Know-Why, Know-What, Know-How:

Your instructors are practitioner, and therefore able to go beyond canned responses. Because we encourage constructive dialogue you gain deeper appreciation about the why? of agile, and scrum values and principles.

You need practical grasp on agile practices to be effective in your world of work. Therefore we engage in fun, interactive role playing simulations. As a result you are better prepared to handle even the most challenging situations in your real world of work. In contrast to “test takers” you have much deeper  understanding to help your organization be agile, not just do agile.

Testimonials

  • “Group engagement and breakouts, even though we had to go virtual due to COVID- 19. Well thought out approach to a virtual class presentation and engagement. I was impressed with the ability to bring a remote class into such an engaging state between different people across such great distances. I would definitely sign up for another virtual class.”
    Leon Weiss -
  • “It was all positive.  Great training session – and excellent trainer.  Any questions were answered, not with a canned generic but with thoughtful reasoning that made it even clearer. ”
    Jerry-holden -
  • “Trainer did a great job integrating his expertise, experience, and real world literature / references. Dhaval did an amazing job bringing humor into the classroom and making the discussion tangible to the work we do.”
    Arlyne Aranda Clark -
  • “The exercises in the class helped me understand the scrum framework very easily.  Dhaval Panchal is a great instructor; he is very experienced and guided us through the process and explained the concepts extremely well. I truly appreciated his teaching style and how he was able to make the subject interesting and hands on. Would definitely recommend him.”
    Tija Bushnaq -
  • “I liked how interactive the session was and that we went through 3 iterations. The pictures and drawings supported  my learning modality.I liked how Dhaval showed us the agile way in his own example by adjusting his teaching technique mid-course to include more examples. I also liked how specific Dhaval was in answering questions, even if they were answered, “Yes and no.” With these types of questions, he gave us where the circumstances made sense, where they might, and if it was out of scope.”
    Jennifer Hunt -
  • Dhaval’s artwork was memorable – much more than the typical slideware.
