Agile 30 – Welcoming wannabe Agile Coaches and Trainers

Agile 30 – Overview

I started Agile 30 mentoring program last year and look like it was kind of successful based on feedback I received so far. Why we started and what was focus? Check here to know more about it. This is a 9 months program where people works in group to do below activities. Group will start functioning from February 2018 and will work till October.

1. Develop some good program based continuous feedback
2. Facilitate workshops on related topics
3. Facilitate Webinars
4. Speak in meetup/conferences
5. Get help in earning trainer credentials from Scrum Alliance, or ICAgile

This years based on feedback, we are starting paid workshops so our coaches/trainers can earn little money if workshops become popular.
