About Agile University

Pre-Paid Education

Since 2012, Agile University has continued to lead the way when it comes to offering public training to enable individuals and companies develop their skillsets, network with like-minded agilists and advance their agile practices.

No "Death by Powerpoint"

All our classes are built around collaboration and hands-on learning. Our instructors want to make sure you're gaining the understanding you need so you can bring back real, actionable strategies.

Instructors that are Servant-leaders

Instructors have seen all aspects of an agile transformation and they bring their real-world experience into the classroom. There's no holding back-if they can help you brainstorm how to handle reluctant team members or how to get buy-in from management, they will share their own experiences so that you can advance your skills.

Support Beyond the Classroom

After you've completed one of our classes, we continue to provide you with the information and ongoing support you need for your agile journey.
