High quality experience

We are confident we can deliver a high quality experience similar to the one you would get in a face-to-face training. Our trainers have gained extensive experience in providing online training and workshops and they are supported by the Scrum Alliance (the accrediting organisation).

Small groups with large interactivity & fun

The training is highly interactive and we even use games (building houses, paper snowflakes …) to make it fun and interactive. Also we regularly have breaks in between the workshops so that you can stay focused during the training.

ZOOM for remote learning

This platform is perfectly suited for remote training and offers a lot of possibilities for interaction such as using a whiteboard and working in sub-groups. A few days before the start of the training, we provide you with the instructions so that you can prepare carefully for your online training. At the start of the training we run with you through the setup so that you are confident that everything runs smoothly during the training

Why is this virtual classroom so worthwhile according to our participants?

We have already received a lot of positive reactions from participants who followed an online Scrum training with us in the past few weeks. Here we listed a couple of testimonials:


"Just try and you will see how great it is. We ( team of 9 persons ) did this, you may like it too."


"Don't be hesitant (as I was). It went much better than I could ever expect and it was very interactive."


"The experience is different but the overall feelings and learnings of an online training are the same as an offline training."

This course is suitable for anyone working as a Product Owner, business analyst, functional analyst, tester or project manager in a Scrum environment. It is also very interesting for people in the product, sales and marketing departments of an organization, as well as other interested managers and directors.
