BERTEIG is going virtual.

Channeling 15 years of expertise into new virtual training offerings. Receive the same internationally-recognized certifications with the same excellence you’ve come to expect from BERTEIG in-person training.

 

We’ve been working on virtualizing our training for years and the COVID-19 outbreak has presented us with the opportunity to move up our timetable.

When you are grounded in what it means to ‘be agile’ as opposed to just ‘doing agile’ and following the practices; you start to achieve organizational agility.

This training is to help you understand the profound shift in approach to work, without specific focus on any single agile methodology or framework.
