In this unique seminar, we will be offering a practical view of three important Agile methods:

OpenAgile - used for general agile project management and agile teamwork including projects and organizations doing any kind of work

Scrum - used for software new product development and IT project management

Kanban - used for teams doing operational work

This seminar contributes towards three certification programs: the Scrum Alliance's Certified ScrumMaster program, the OpenAgile Team Member level and the IPMA/PMAC Agile Project Management certification.
