Agil8 Insights: Certified Scrum Developer Testimonial
14 Sep 2017
Rickard Jones shares his experience of Agil8’s Certified Scrum Developer course, and highlights how he feels it has really benefitted him in his Agile journey.
Agil8 was formed by David Hicks, a pioneer of Agile since the mid-1990s, an Agile Alliance Founder and one of the world’s most experienced and qualified Agile consultants and trainers. Agil8 draws on experience of working with organisations across all industry sectors over many years, and the management and delivery of some of the world’s largest and most complex Agile implementations. It is our experience that whilst the challenges faced by our customers are often similar, the best solution for the challenge depends entirely upon the real-world circumstances. What is best for one situation is not necessarily best for another. For this reason Agil8 has always sought to provide the best advice and solutions no matter where they come from. Today Agil8 is the only company in the world with independently accredited services in all of the leading Lean and Agile methods such as Scrum, Kanban and Agile Project Management. This provides Agil8 and our customers with the best possible choice of the best possible solutions and services.

The Agil8 consulting and training portfolio is one of the most comprehensive available, and is flexible to meet the needs of teams and organisations large and small. Off the shelf offerings for everything from Agile Strategy to Certified Scrum Training, from Kanban coaching to Agile Healthchecks can be tailored into targeted packages .
Real World Agile
The challenge of Agile is to make it work in the real world. “Ideal world” Agile is just that – an ideal. It is important to understand why the ideal model is worth striving for, but success with Agile only comes through knowing how to deal with real-world constraints whilst maximising agility. Workable plans to reduce and remove these constraints are the essence of continuous improvement, and knowing how to manage the inevitable risks on the way is essential. This is the Agil8 focus – delivery of real value, in the real world.
