Training Course Series

Do you want to understand how to effectively improve your working process? How to apply product management and software development practices and techniques? Do you want to learn principles and practices in order to reduce the complexity of your product or software system?

Very often, concepts, practices and principles of process improvement, product management and software engineering are learned in an abstract way. If we don't understand the essence of those concepts and tools, we end up experiencing them as an imposition. We find ourselves in a methodological cage. That brings us to applying processes and practices in a "distant" way and only because "this is how the team works."

The Training Course Series has been created to develop your process improvement, product management and software development skills and enable you to reach your goals and grow your products in a fast and sustainable way.

The goal of these courses is not only to show how to properly apply a certain process, principle or practice but also to explain why and how they can help reduce complexity from a business and technical point of view.

As a result of each course, you'll be more aware of your process improvement, product management and software design and development skills. You'll be able to improve your process, apply a product management or software design principle, practice or tool. You will always be stimulated to see principles and practices to regulate complexity from a different perspective and increase your awareness.
