* Caveats
  • The assumption for all packages is that the provided training/coaching/support is for one team (3-9 people). Product owner and Scrum master are also included
  • Iteration length (sprint) is estimated to last 2 weeks (10 days). Different sprint length could be proposed/negotiated
  • Specific software or materials are not mandatory condition for the training sessions to be beneficial and for the team to do efficient Agile. If the client requires specific software or materials – they could be additionally included
  • No travelling costs are estimated (in case the company is located outside Sofia)

* Methodology & topics
I work onsite with the team/s using training / coaching sessions upfront or during real iterations, while the team/s deliver real features and products

The training / coaching sessions include but are not limited to:
  • Identifying client's culture and processes and elaborating ideas/plan on how to integrate efficiently Agile without causing huge disruptions
  • Understanding the Agile philosophy and mindset
  • The benefits of adopting Agile
  • Understanding and assigning the Scrum roles
