- 2nd Nov 20 - 4th Nov 20
9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Venue: Live online
The live online courses will be delivered over Zoom video conferencing, all you will need is a computer, internet connection and to situate yourself somewhere quiet.
A headset with mic would be advisable, though not essential.
Theses courses will be delivered in small groups (3 or 4 people) and will break out into virtual rooms for any group discussion and group exercises on key topics. We ensure there is a balance of experience across the groups in order to share experiences, as we find delegates learn as much off each other as they do from the trainer.

With a longstanding interest in quality management and process improvement, in 2001 David trained with one of the godfathers of Agile, Bob Martin, in Chicago, followed by six months working alongside ObjectMentor coaches on his first Agile transition. Since then he has transformed, coached and managed teams and organisations in the UK, Europe, South Africa and India.
David has always been one of the foremost proponents of the need to improve quality in software development and is a popular speaker at local and international events.
A Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) and Certified SAFe Program Consultant (SPC), David has many years’ experience of scaling practices that were originally intended for small teams to make them work at the enterprise level.
