[email protected] Trainer Program

Our [email protected] Train the Trainer’s (SaST) course teaches current coaches and trainers how to instruct the key principles of Dr. Jeff Sutherland’s Scrum at Scale framework. This rigorous and interactive 5-day training will focus on the best practices and instructional techniques so that you can deliver maximum value to your scaling students. As a part of this course, you will prepare and present a case study from your own experience. Your instructors and peers will provide you with feedback to refine your work and make it ready to be taught in a [email protected] course. Your case study will become a part of an open-source, public library of [email protected] resources.
