We have delayed announcing our winter 2012 schedule until now because we have been working on a new platform for listing our courses and creating a community environment for people who have taken our courses. So, without further ado, I would like to offer to you: World Mindware!
Since we are agile ourselves, this site is still very basic. We have our list of courses and you are able to register for courses. However, we welcome feedback of all kinds including bug reports, suggestions for improvements or requests for assistance. Please contact email@example.com if you have any feedback about the site.
CSM Certified ScrumMaster – Sept. 26 & 27, 2011 – Ottawa
In this two day Seminar participants learn how to guide a team, a project, or an organization into a process of rapid delivery of valuable results. We will also focus on the role of the ScrumMaster (or Agile Project Manager) as an enabler of hyper-productive teams. Exercises, case studies, and examples are used to assist participants to develop the knowledge, skills, capabilities, and insights needed to make the shift from traditional management practices to Agile practices.

Just a quick note to let people know that there are spots available in the course we are delivering next week in Waterloo. Details can be found here.
Our agile methods seminar with Certified ScrumMaster, OpenAgile Team Member and Kanban next week in Toronto and our Certified ScrumMaster seminar the following week in Ottawa both have spots available. Just a reminder that these seminars are a great choice if you are thinking about getting training, need PDUs for the PMI, or if your organization is struggling with using agile effectively.
Hope to see you at one of these!
Due to popular demand, we have added another Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) training to our listing of courses. There is an overwhelming need for well trained Product Owners, and we’re happy to take up the challenge. The next CSPO will happen on January 14 & 15 at our office in Newmarket, just north of Toronto.
During this seminar, our Certified Scrum Trainer will teach participants how to do the fundamental tasks of the Product Owner in the Scrum environment. The attendees will learn:
- how to develop a comprehensive Product Backlog
- competently add value to the Scrum team during the Sprint
- fully understand how Scrum works and their role within the agile environment
With a maximum class size of five people, this seminar is designed to allow participants to dig deep into the role of the Certified Scrum Product Owner. After completing this course, attendees of this seminar will be able to create and manage a Product Backlog, work with a Scrum Team to create high-quality software, and use the Scrum framework to build and deliver the right software. Please refer to our website for a course description and to reserve space for yourself or others on your team. http://www.berteigconsulting.com/CSPOCourseDescription
We look forward to adding value to your team!

We have wrapped up our Summer Special. There are still a few classes scheduled this year that have the discount price, but others have reverted to our normal price. I encourage you to take a look at our course schedule at http://www.berteigconsulting.com/ to see what is still available.
Also, all our future Certified ScrumMaster courses will have a knowledge test as part of the certification process. Please see the Scrum Alliance website for more information at http://www.scrumalliance.org/.
Our summer special is proving to be very popular! We started with 100 spots at our 50% discount price of CAD 995.00. We’re down to 59 spots. Check out our course listing page – every CSM course we have scheduled in Canada is available at this fantastic price (Toronto, Waterloo, Edmonton, Ottawa).
Even without the discount, our course is a better value than many out there. It’s a three day course instead of the normal two. This gives you a chance to really dig into the concepts and practices of Scrum and Agile Project Management. Our course is really designed for project managers, team leads and other managers, instead of being for anyone interested in Scrum. Of course, if you are interested in a leadership role, but aren’t there yet, you are still welcome to come!
Not only that, we don’t run courses in locations where it is not easy for use to support you after you take the course. We run our business in Canada, and our consulting and coaching work is there to help you if you want further assistance with doing agile in your organization. Even if you aren’t in Canada, maybe your organization has a group in Canada or you have professional contacts in Canada – if so, let them know about this fantastic opportunity.
Find our list of scheduled courses here.
We know that our Certified ScrumMaster Seminar is already the best value out there: 3 days of intensive training for just $2000 Canadian Dollars (that’s about $1700 USD), with all sorts of great exercises and practical advice, and mind-changing concepts. However, we also know that if you have attended a CSM course already, you can’t easily justify going to another one. That’s why we are offering a substantial discount if you are already a Certified ScrumMaster. If you have gone to any CSM training in the past at any time with any trainer, you can take advantage of a 50% discount to come to our course. That means attending, refreshing, rejuvenating and getting a great opportunity for just $1000 Canadian Dollars (that’s about $850 USD).
Contact us at email@example.com if you would like more information. Applicable to all public courses offered in Canada by Berteig Consulting. Offer valid for all paid registrations made for classes being held before the end of August 2009. (Also a great opportunity to visit Canadian relatives, see the CN Tower, or just get away during the summer…)
Here are the classes:
May 13-15, 2009 – Toronto (Markham)
