The GROWS™ Method takes the best ideas from the agile software development movement and harnesses them in a growth-oriented, skills-aware framework that features:
This workshop explores the basic ideas underlying the GROWS approach with a combination of lectures, group and individual exercises, and audience participation.
Why is this any different from any other “agile workshop” out there? Why is this different from Scrum, or XP, or SAfE, or LeSS, or…
Here’s the thing. We aren’t selling you endless consulting hours. We aren’t selling you a magical unicorn that will solve all your problems with one large check (although if you feel so inclined, we’ll always accept donations).
What we are offering you is a chance to learn the true meaning of agile, as the original authors intended. We’re offering you a chance to build a world-class software development team within your own organization, on your own terms.
Our workshops have opened the eyes and minds of participants in a way that other, color-by-number approaches have failed to do.
We’ll show you what works, and what doesn’t work. Common mistakes and how to avoid them.
And most importantly, we’ll show you how to grow and prosper on your own—without us or anyone else.
Sign up today, and we’ll let you know when we’re in your area, physically or virtually.
"I especially like the GROWS fixed-rate understanding of team velocity. I've used that idea on a project where I was able to show that given our task list and our current velocity (reported daily on a wall calendar), we needed help. We got it, and I was then able to show we were on track."

"The themes that hit closest to home for me were aligning my work with Executive Vision/Initiatives, permitting Experimentation and tracking my growth through a Learning Journal. I recommend learning how the GROWS™ Method can help your team grow through the application of Agile and Lean methodologies and beyond."

"Spread this information to masses—this is what the real world needs"
