The location & training room is shaped towards optimal collaboration between the participants.

The content of the PAL-E training\workshop is continuously updated by a community of Professional Scrum Trainers (PST’s).

Leaders will understand how agility adds value to their organization and why their support in creating the proper culture is essential to success. They will be prepared to support and enable teams by providing guidance and removing impediments that are beyond the team’s ability to address:

  • Professional introduction to Agile, and connecting agility with what really matters to the success of your organization.
  • Understand how leading with Agile principles and values creates better outcomes, and overcome many organizational challenges.
  • Understand how to create a culture of engagement in continuous improvement & delivery, and an accountability model for the modern-day organization to sustain agility.
