Agile and Scrum Training

Agile and Scrum Training and Coaching with Michigan Technology Services

Michigan Technology Services offers instructor-led Agile and Scrum courses through a partnership with a Scrum Alliance Certified Scrum Trainer. The training can take place at our location in Farmington Hills, 20 miles outside of Detroit, or onsite at your office anywhere throughout the United States.

While many CST’s fly into metro Detroit to deliver a class, and then leave, we live here and support the local Agile community.   We continue to sponsor local Agile conferences, and have successfully run Agile and Scrum courses for multiple teams in the Great Lakes area.

What is Scrum?

Scrum is one of the most widely adopted agile frameworks. It is a simple, yet powerful way to boost team productivity, elevate quality, and accelerate project delivery. The courses cover pragmatic practices for long and short-range planning, project execution, and progress reporting. They provide an examination of the Scrum project lifecycle as well as an in-depth exploration of the Scrum roles, ceremonies, and artifacts. Exercises, case studies, and examples are interwoven into each class to illustrate agile principles and practices.
