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.

We have tried to maintain as much of the interactive nature of our in-person training when transferring courses online.  Whilst the lack of physicality limits what we can do, a number of the exercises do transfer.

 

  • Trainer: Mark Summers


    Mark Summers believes happiness always comes first. As a leading figure in the growth of agile coaching, experience has taught him that if a team is having fun, it will perform far better.

    When he was a developer, Mark loved solving tech problems and creating world class software solutions. As a Certified Scrum Trainer and Certified Enterprise Coach, he finds it even more satisfying to help people solve their own problems and create world class teams. He was one of the UK’s first agile coaches and today is a leading figure in the ongoing story of agile training and coaching, a speaker at conferences, a leader of retreats, and a coach who never stops reflecting and evolving. If you’re an agent of change, he believes you have to be on a continuous learning journey yourself.

    For Mark, enjoyment isn’t an optional extra – that’s where businesses go wrong. He believes that the organisation of the future will be driven by self-organising, self-motivated teams and facilitated by manager-coaches rather than led by traditional dictator-managers. Mark sees his work – coaching teams, leadership and organisations in their move to agility – as part of a bigger shift in society.

    Uncompromisingly honest with himself, energising and thought-provoking as a coach, Mark is 100% committed to helping people succeed by becoming happier, more open and more autonomous as individuals and as teams.

  • Trainer: Zia Malik


    For Zia Malik, organisational change doesn’t just mean adopting new processes and working in new ways. It isn’t even simply about thinking in new ways. True transformation requires challenging beliefs, and that means changing people from the inside.

    Zia is one of a small number of UK Certified Enterprise Coaches with the Scrum Alliance, and an experienced agile trainer, Certified Scrum Trainer CST and professionally trained coach in business and personal coaching, accredited by the International Coach Federation. He has worked as an enterprise coach in a range of industries including fintech, aerospace, pharma and retail, working with individuals, teams and organisations.

    He works with frameworks such as Scrum, but recognises that these don’t exist in a vacuum. People work within them and adapt to them, and Zia spends much of his time focusing on the psychological motivations and barriers involved in personal and organisational change. Ultimately it’s about moving from structures and mindsets inherited from the Industrial Revolution towards a smarter way of organising ourselves.

    Zia’s training and coaching is both inspiring and thought-provoking, aimed at giving people a set of tools, techniques and concepts they can use to achieve and sustain genuine transformation.
