Virtual Agile Open
Join the Braintrust Team for the first Virtual Agile Open event. We are taking our popular Agile Open events online!
Do you want to create your very own conference filled with fascinating sessions focused on the topics that most interest you? Do you want to find a safe place to engage in a deep discussion with experts on a topic that you are just starting to learn? Welcome to Braintrust’s Virtual Agile Open!
This isn’t a traditional conference! There are no keynote speakers or PowerPoints! Using the Open Space Technology (OST) approach, this event encourages Agile practitioners to self-organize around topics that are most important to them. Attendees with common issues and interests share their experiences and learn from others. There is no preset agenda for the event; rather, sessions are created “live” by the participants at the start of the day. Click here for a short video on Open Space Technology.
We will use Zoom Breakout Rooms and MURAL to create an intimate and fun Virtual Agile Open Space environment. There will be “office hours” before the event for you to test the tools and meet your Facilitators.
Plan to spend a full day connecting with others who share your passion and are willing to take responsibility for what they believe in and care about around following a path to Agility.
See you in November!

"The last two days I attended the Scrum Alliance Certified Agile Leadership (CAL) Credential 1 course taught by Anu Smalley, CST from The Braintrust Consulting Group. It was a great training with several other seasoned Agile Leaders who are creating change in their teams and organizations. I was reminded that real change takes executive sponsorship, careful consideration, and willing team members. Companies who are committed to putting in the time and allowing the right people to get in the right seats can transform the way an organization delivers. I'm looking forward to using these Agile principles as I build a team who will thrive on a culture of process and system improvement."Chris H., Global IT Solutions
"This class does a great job of explaining and showcasing the strengths of agile development without making the rules rigid and inflexible. I feel that I have a solid groundwork for trying agile and seeing what works best for my team."Derek, Onramp Access
"By tying together Agile principles and engineering best practices, this course provides a springboard from which to improve one's technical output and team dynamic."Ted, Red Hat Inc.
I arrived with a good understanding of Scrum and still found the course tremendously valuable. They did a great job of providing a great value for all skill levels.Karl, Guthy-Renker
"An invaluable resource for learning, improving or cementing an understanding of Scrum."Matt, Naxos of America
