NOT BEING AGILE IS NO MORE AN OPTION
Making Agile adoption easy for organizations by changing the way Agile training is delivered.
Traditional Agile courses were all about getting certifications;
Our training programs focus on developing an “Agile Mind”.
Learning Agile should not just be about achieving a certification. It is about realizing that there is a better way to succeed in today’s business environment. It is with this awareness that you can accomplish more for your team and for your clients.
At AgileTraining.Co, we understand the importance of the “Spirit of Agile” and have designed our training programs to help every attendee develop an “Agile Mind”. We don’t believe in developing “Mindsets”. Having your “Mind” be “Set” implies a lack of flexibility, a resistance to future adaptation, and that is contrary to what Agile is all about.
Our training programs are grounded in practical techniques, hands-on workshops and best practices that add real value to an Individual , a Team and an Organization.
All of our training programs are designed by our Chief Agile Trainer Gourab Nanda, a highly experienced Agile Trainer. Gourab is a senior Agile instructor, Certified Scrum Professional, Certified Agile Leader, Kanban Management Professional and SAFe Program Consultant (SPC4). He has been conducting training and coaching programs for Scrum, Agile, Lean and SAFe throughout North America since 2012. Gourab has conducted over 300 Scrum and Agile programs, training thousands of IT professionals, Project Managers, Consultants, Teachers, and Senior Executives from both commercial companies as well as government agencies. He has led private Agile training sessions at organizations like Bank of America, Department of Justice, Customers Bank, PwC, American Express, CIA, GlaxoSmithKline, Kaiser Permanente, SAIC, USPS, Guardian Life, Honeywell, Rockwell Automation, Booz Allen, Dunn & Bradstreet, and many more. Gourab provides training for formal certification courses as well as conducts executive seminars on Agile, Scrum and Lean-Agile related subjects. He also offers virtual support for all agile transformation issues. His unique training style always keeps students engaged in the class. His complete command over both theoretical and practical aspects of Agile principles has helped him achieve many accolades from individual learners as well as organizations.
After gaining 10 years of technology and management experience in a variety of industries, Gourab became a Technology Entrepreneur in 2006. His extreme passion for software product development motivated him to become an Agile trainer and coach. Gourab believes that Agile is the best thing that could have happened to the software industry. After successfully founding and selling his first company, Gourab is currently the founder and CEO of VendorFit.com. Gourab practices Agile methods in his own company as well. Gourab holds a Bachelor’s degree in Engineering from National Institute of Technology and an MBA from Brigham Young University.
An Agile Expert Certified Training class was recently conducted here at the USPS Wilkes-Barre Solutions Center in Wilkes-Barre, PA. The training was a three-day class conducted from 04-20-15 through 04-22-15. Our class consisted of 16 employees, most were developers, a few Business Systems Analysts, and two Business Project Leaders. The 16 students came to class with an array of different Agile backgrounds, some with very little Agile experience or exposure. After he discovered that the students were of varying degrees of the understanding of Agile, Gourab essentially restructured the class to ensure that each student was able to receive the maximum benefit of the three-day class. The Agile instructor Gourab Nanda did a really fine job instructing the class was given the varying Agile backgrounds of the class. The students were kept quite busy during all three days. All 16 students furnished me with verbal high words of praise for Gourab. I would state that given the comments that I received from the students and Gourab that the three-day class was indeed very successful. I would personally recommend Gourab to teach Agile Certified Training to all of the USPS Solution Centers or any Corporation utilizing the Agile Expert Certified Methodologies.

Taking the Scrum Master training was a great experience that allowed my team and others in our organization to learn the fundamental of the Scrum/Agile methodology. This course was very interactive and the instructor was very engaged in understanding our organization’s needs. Overall I would recommend this course to anyone that is interested in learning and applying these concepts in their daily work.
