Unsure Which Course is Right for You?
Ivar Jacobson International have been supporting customers with Agile training and transformations for decades.
Although many students are already in the role they wish to train for, many trainees are moving out of traditional roles such as “Project Manager” or “Business Analyst” or looking to understand the methods that their own customers are working with. But where do you start?
If you need help selecting the right course for you, we can put you in touch with our trainers, who will be able to explain which courses could be a great match for your situation and your career!
First of foremost, such a pleasure and honor to have had the opportunity to meet you virtually and gather rich insights directly.
I loved every aspect of the course, even though I joined from Toronto, Canada each day around 4am my time!. I came in looking for deeper perspective on leveraging use case model with agile @scale in complex environment and I got valuable nuggets. The course is pragmatic and I am looking forward to applying the learning right away. Ian and team have been amazing!Gagan Marwaha
Fantastic [use case] course material - brilliantly delivered - and an outstanding web-based online course as an add-on.
What more to ask for?
I especially appreciated the constant sharing of the instructors vast topic-related and real-life knowledge.
THANKS again Ian for yet another gem of a course!Gerd Wessling, Dipl. Physicist
The course was very informative, while keeping what could become a dry subject interesting with good real-world examples/experiences to apply to the model as we learned each aspect.
I feel the course has opened my eyes into new ways we can work and improve our performance and traceability in the development cycle and offer a more unified approach for the team.Jago Marris
I attended the course ‘Use Cases for Agile at Scale’ in Autumn 2020. My intent was to step out from the often too operational viewpoint of agile development and to incorporate a holistic view of the developed product. Such view is necessary to embrace the full software development lifecycle.
It turned out that the course helped me not only with my intent, but brought a set of tools to improve development at scale, team alignment and backlog management. I gained much more clarity in next steps of our agile journey, quality control and continuous improvement, and I’m looking forward to discussing and implementing it with our agile teams peers at home base.
I did enjoy the content and presentation style of Ian and Brian. Their rich experience and easy language made almost all of my questions too easy for them, and I appreciate their overtime hours to discuss the difficult ones. The tools of their choice broke the invisible walls of remote training that we all face during COVID times.
All together it was a superb course, which I have enjoyed thoroughly and find as useful as I hoped.Arseny Krasikov, Quality Assurance Manager, IT platform, global corporation in machinery industry, 10000+ employees
I liked the course very much! All information has a clear structure, and examples are straightforward. I’m very grateful to you for such an interesting and useful course and the ideas that it brought to my head!Nataliya Dovgopol, Business Solution Architect, NIX
Thank you for an excellent course. I got the suggestion to do my SPC with you guys and I am so glad I did.
I have attended many courses, as one does in IT, and I have to say the way you presented the course was exceptional. The content was good but Brian and Keith made it so much more interesting to the point I found myself glued to the screen listening intently to your examples and stories and extras tit bits.
Really a huge thank you! Hope one day to have the privilege of working with you guys.Karen Nel, Creative Technologies
I wish we have had this training earlier, about a year or two ago.
If we had this training before we started on our large project, we would have avoided a lot of challenges we are dealing with today.
I would recommend this kind of training to others in the company/business (of course not to our competitors)Wim Verdonck, TBA - Software Solutions & Services for ports, terminals & warehouses
The course is awesome! Starting from the introduction to the context and well-paced dive-in, shifting to the evolution of Use Cases and practical Use Case Modeling (guided step-by-step with well-prepared Mural boards and great timing), toward more complex concepts.
Ian Spence delivered a superb workshop. I received a lot of new information, insights, and thoughts for further research and experiments. Highly recommend this workshop for requirements engineers and business analysts to understand how they could apply well-defined techniques and updated approaches for scope modeling on pre-sales / discovery phases and further transition to project execution.
Ivar, appreciate your input and impact on the IT industry!Taras Zakharkiv, Head of Business Analysis Office, ELEKS
I found the course very valuable and useful. I had expected a course more solely focused on SAFe. Instead, I got a fabulous end to end course on Use Cases in an agile environment. I also found Ian Spence’s guidance during the exercises very positive.Gruenhut Steven
This course was well-worth the $$ and getting up at 2:30 AM due to time zones. I would do it again in heartbeat.Tim Stamper
