More than just one-off courses

More than just one-off courses

Our mission is to raise the bar of agile certification

  • Experienced Guides over professional trainers
  • A continuous learning pathway over a one-off course
  • Group exploration over individual reflection
  • Guided navigation over a solo journey
  • We value the items on the right and we value those on the left MORE

Where Mastery Matters

Where Mastery Matters

The idea of mastery comes from an American educational psychologist called Benjamin Bloom.
Bloom recommended that rather than teaching students to recite data or answer a specific, tailored test, students should be encouraged to develop a deep and full understanding of what they are being taught through as much exposure to contextual information as they can.

Don't Waste Training

Don't Waste Training

Despite the alternative certification organisations offering advanced training paths, they haven’t proven to be effective.
Less than 2% of Certified Scrum Masters go on to become Advanced Certified Scrum Masters and 4% of PSM I students advance to PSM 2 at Scrum dot Org.
This isn’t necessarily a problem apart from the fact that the learning objectives for those base level certifications are very low. They effectively equate to an introduction to Scrum and the role. They certainly don’t help people represent a concept or skill and relate it to unfamiliar situations.

Why Mastery Matters

Why Mastery Matters

Agile is relevant to complex domains; situations where the past is not a reliable indicator of the future and requirements and technology are rapidly changing. In these situations, learning processes and standard responses to a set of given situations are not appropriate.
It is not a case of learning rules or repeatable ways of working. People cannot come to a training class and be taught the right way to do things in every situation. Instead we need to help people learn how to make sense of the situation, sense the context, understand the nuances and make coherent judgements.
This is where the continuity of the learning relationship and the temporal element of the Pathway program comes in. People can learn, apply, reflect, respond. Together with their learning cohort and their Guide. Over time, based not on classroom scenarios but their real-life scenarios.
