How to Make Agile Work in Fast-Growing Startups
Implementing projects by using agile methodology does not necessarily mean more productivity with the same amount of resources or that you will even be able to generate a product faster than usual.

Wie lernen wir als Gesellschaft?
Conducting workshops can help project managers to work out problem solutions and also generate ideas that will be beneficial to the achievement of project goals. In this context, the group dynamics of interdisciplinary teams have a significant impact on the success of a workshop.

The certification can be taken via a reputable online examination procedure. The costs are based on the gross domestic product of your country of origin.


Which certification suits you best?

For better readability, we usually only use the generic masculine form in our texts. Nevertheless, the expressions refer to members of all genders.
