I help companies and individuals to be more successful.

 

Teaching teams and their managers how to be more efficient, how to provide better quality and how to communicate and organize teams so that people have fun, they are motivated and have high commitment

 

I help them to find out how to handle customer relationship so that the customer satisfaction is much higher than it used to be.

Agile is not only a new methodology, it's a culture which is hard to implement if you haven't experienced it yourself. I had implemented it many times already, in many different companies, so I can help you to implement it in your environment, the way you need it.

AdvanScrum class with Danko Kovatch at Prague

Danko Kovatch, Certified Scrum Trainer, is coming to Prague to deliver interesting workshop AdvanScrum. See details below.

 

Although Scrum has become the most popular framework for Agile development, many individuals and companies practicing Scrum find themselves lacking in real understanding on how to operate in Scrum, how to instill and maintain the needed mind set and, no less important, how to make sure it will "stick".  

AdvanScrum is derived from Scrum, but is focused on tested and practical tools, techniques and solutions.

AdvanScrum is based on empirical collective experience and best practices, collected and perfected in dozens of successful implementations. It can be applied immediately in your day to day work.
