Contact: | | +44 7493 404 468 | Free Consultation

Course Overview

This instructor-led class is intended to help Product Owners be more effective in their role. Through a combination of presentation, discussion, and hands-on activities, attendees will learn the responsibilities and preferred practices of being the member of the Scrum Team who drives the value.

All of our classes can be delivered in-person, or as Live Virtual Classrooms anywhere in the world.

Why naked Agility with Martin Hinshelwood?

We believe in empiricism, and so we need to inspect and adapt, which is dificult to do within a 16h class. So we offer:

  • Additional 30-minute session with the trainer for every student – all live virtual classes, public and private, come with an additional 30-minute session with the trainer for students that take the assessment within 14 days of the class to help them with their future learning path.
  • Additional trainning sessions for private classes – In addition to the public offering, Private classes will get additional consulting, coaching, and training sessions to be used within 6 months of the class that totals 25% of the training time. For a 16h class that would be 4 hours of additional sessions on any topic folks want. See

Class Inclusivity Features for those that are differently able

We know that more can always be done to help those with disabilities and we are exploring many technological techniques for helping those with dificulties by using:

  • Online Training – Train from the comfort of your own home.
  • Live captions in English – Microsoft Teams provides live closed captions in English for those that are hard of hearing
  • Live Translation in any Language (preview/experimentation) – You can request that we provide subtitles in any Language using Microsoft Translator Conversations.

Class Inclusivity Features for those in different economic context

Since our goal is to bring Scrum, Kanban, and their good practices to the world we need to accept that some markets just dont have the same buying power as Europe or the USA. To try and offset that reality we offer multiple ticket types that try to offset that inherant diference:

  • Primary Market Ticket100% market rate – This ticket is for residents of countries that we consider to be in our primary market; Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Korea, Luxembourg, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, United States, Saudi Arabia
  • Secondary Market Ticket50% Primary – Tickets for all countries not listed as primary. You will be asked for evidence of residence after processing.
  • Special Market Ticket25% Primary – These tickets are available through our local agents in Ghana, Nigeria, and other countries where purchase power has been assesed to require extra offset.

This instructor-led class is intended to help Product Owners be more effective in their role. Through a combination of presentation, discussion, and hands-on activities, attendees will learn the responsibilities and preferred practices of being the member of the Scrum Team who drives the value.
