MORE FUN. MORE RETENTION. MORE VALUE.


Your InstructorRobin Dymond, CST

I enjoy using stories, games, interactive learning and real-life scenarios to fascinate managers, executives and teams with the way Agile and Lean can dramatically improve their work and opportunities in their industries. Having created my own software-startups, and as a leader in Scrum, Agile and Lean communities, I deeply value establishing the systems and behaviors that lead to successes to support long-term growth. Having been a trainer for over a decade, I also value the training time and investment students and companies make. At Innovel, we focus on more fun, more retention and more value in every single class. 

Innovel Offers Internationally-Acclaimed, Proven Adult Learning Methods

Unlike most corporate training, we use methods that improve retention by stimulating the rational, physical, emotional and social facets of participants. We ensure every course is successful by:

  • Doing activities and lessons customized for every class. We review the needs of registrants and enhance each course with the perfect games, stories, mapping and other activities for best results.
  • Discussing and documenting the needs of those attending, then using real life scenarios you can apply right away. 
  • Collaborating and interacting with your own team members and others in a comfortable manner that encourages shared thinking, learning and creation of solutions. 
Lean Agile Manager Workshop Innovel

Innovel sets you up for CSM exam success and your company up for improvement... on day one. 

I was very impressed by your teaching methods. I wish I could attend more training you offered over agile management – maybe in the future. Again, thank you very much – it was surely an awesome class and well worth the money.

Max Aulakh

Thank you very much for the class. It really helped structuring book knowledge and answer unanswered questions. Our team is very excited about Scrum now and we can see improvements already. That’s so cool!

Dmitry Antonov

Great training last Thursday/Friday. I was telling folks at work about how much I enjoyed/learned. They are interested. Do you have any plans of returning to Charleston SC for training in the next 6 months?

Gerald Auger

First of all, once more I want to thank you for two outstanding days of training. Had a lot of fun and got many new insights. Really liked the discussions with you and the others. Thank you for that.

Jan Verstrepen

Should I Become a Certified Scrum Master?

The Certified Scrum Master (CSM) designation is the world's leading Agile certification.

The CSM is a popular employment requirement to participate or lead an Agile or Scrum team. The CSM is the start of the journey and is a pre-requisite for a Certified Scrum Professional (CSP), the Certified Team Coach (CTC) and the Certified Enterprise Coach (CEC).

How Innovel Helps

With Innovel training, the CSM course covers more than the basics of Scrum as outlined by the Scrum Alliance. We cover topics like writing requirements with User Stories, Estimating with Story Points and Release Planning using a capacity model. We believe just knowing the Scrum basics is simply not adequate in 2017. 

Our goal is to provide you with concrete ideas you can implement the day after in your company. We help you learn how to implement Scrum with an Agile mindset, so you can adapt to the many possible issues that will arise.

When you leave an Innovel Certified Scrum Master course you will have a new set of tools and a more effective way to do work and complete projects wherever your career takes you.
