Agile Mentoring Program

The Agile Mentoring Program is a 13 week, small group mentoring program. It helps experienced CSMs and CSPs deepen their agile coaching skills. The next program starts on March 25, 2017 and will run from 1130am PST – 1pm PST on Saturdays.

If you prefer one-on-one mentoring or coaching, I offer a program for people who are seeking to make progress on one or more of the following:

    • a certification (CSM, CSPO, CSP, CTC, or CEC)
    • improving agile coaching skills
    • personal growth
  • Format: One-on-one conversations on Skype or in person
  • Cadence: We meet for 30-60 minutes as needed. Typically 1-4 times per month.
  • Description: We work together to create a learning backlog that will help you to meet your goals. We then work through the backlog. I provide coaching, mentoring, and accountability.
  • Cost: $150 per hour or $997 for 8 hours
  • Education units: Each hour qualifies for one category B Scrum Alliance SEU. The homework may also count for SEUs.
  • Programs start as needed. We begin with a free half hour ‘get to know you’ call to see if this program makes sense for you.
