As part of this process our senior coaches Andrea Tomasini and Bent Myllerup have been approved as Scrum Alliance Certified Agile Leadership Educators to deliver the new Certified Agile Leadership program.

In fact, if you don’t know that you are sub-optimising, then how can you make the right decisions on a global level.

Information Radiators On A Portfolio Level

Building every idea and small feature is impossible, building features that no one is interested in is wasteful. How can visualisation ...
