Effective teams are the cornerstone of every great organization.
When teams work well, they amplify the capability of every person on the team. But it’s not as simple as assembling a group and telling them they’re a team. To get teams collaborating, we need to create the conditions that enable them to thrive. Humanizing Work has helped supercharge hundreds of high-performing teams.
To help create an empowered, high-performing team, we offer the following options:
- Agile for Teams (AFT) workshops
- Team Launch Sequence (TLS) to start or relauch a team
- Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) training for ScrumMasters and coaches
- Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) training for Product Owners, Product Managers, and Business Analysts
- Advanced Certified Scrum Product Owner (A-CSPO) program for Product Owners, Product Managers, and Business Analysts
- Self-guided online training on a range of specialized topics
Agile for Teams (AFT)
Our Agile For Teams (AFT) workshop provides a solid, shared foundation in the Agile values, principles, and disciplines. This highly interactive, hands-on course is designed for all roles to attend, from developers and testers to Product Owners, ScrumMasters, and managers. The course is designed so that people at every level of Agile maturity can benefit from it, with open-ended exercises where behaviors and answers exhibited vary based on experience allowing even advanced teams to self-assess and find opportunities for improvement.
Learn more about why we recommend an agile approach for building high-performing teams:
Team Launch Sequence (TLS)
Our Team Launch Sequence (TLS) helps newly formed teams, teams new to Agile, or any team that’s feeling a bit stagnant or stuck get aligned, focused, and collaborating effectively. In TLS, we’ve broken down and redesigned standard team improvement efforts to gain in just 2 weeks the improvement most teams typically see after months.
Certified ScrumMaster (CSM)
How do you turn a group of people into a high-performing team? The Scrum framework has a specific role called the ScrumMaster that is focused on team building, facilitation, and removing impediments. Great ScrumMasters amplify the collaborative power of their teams. Our Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) workshop teaches anyone interested in leveling up their team building skills how to do it well within the Scrum Framework. Starting with a firm grounding in why Scrum works and how, the CSM explores how to facilitate effective meetings, conversations, and decision-making to get your team collaborating, delivering value, and improving every Sprint.
We offer both public and private CSM courses.
Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO)
Even the most effective team will fail if they’re not aligned and focused. Our Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) workshop teaches the skills needed to discover, slice, and clarify the most valuable work for the team to execute on. More than a Scrum course with a bit of Product Backlog thrown in, this is a soup to nuts introduction to key Product Management concepts through an agile lens.
We offer both public and private CSPO courses. Participants who complete our CSPO courses are eligible to continue with our Advanced CSPO courses, as well.
Advanced Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO)
Our Advanced Certified Scrum Product Owner (A-CSPO) program picks up where our CSPO workshop leaves off in a unique 6-week hands-on education program. Participants gather in a cohort each week in a 90-minute video call to learn a new concept and then spend the week in-between sessions practicing each concept. By the end of the program, participants will have gained the skills essential to great Product Ownership.
We offer both public and private A-CSPO programs.
