Agile Workshops

Make your team leaner, faster, and more focused on results.

Companies worldwide are turning to Agile/XP practices to improve efficiency, achieve better bottom line results, get quicker wins and higher quality deliverables. With experience in running tiny groups to global organizations, we can help you adopt the right agile approach for your team.

We've run agile teams from three to three hundred, scaled the process to seven offices across three continents, and seen the process succeed while delivering shrink-wrapped software against hard deadlines with millions of dollars on the line. We can explain what works, what doesn't, and what to change to suit your unique needs.

Focus your team on customer value today.

  • Understand pair programming, the benefits, dangers, and different techniques to get the most out of it.
  • Master the practice of test-driven-development, the red-green-refactor cycle, the testing pyramid, and test isolation techniques.
  • Discover how architecture, quality and production support fit into the agile practice.

  • Learn how XP helps you focus on shipping the most important features to your customer today.
  • Master the techniques to conveying that value to the team and leadership through proper story development and backlog maintenance.

The SuperOrbital Difference

We're dedicated to delivering direct value and to ensuring customer success. Here’s how that makes us different:


Bespoke

We tailor each course to your needs.

Most training companies reuse publicly available stock training content, no matter your team's background, skill level, or immediate needs. We’re different. We work with you beforehand to produce a tailored workshop. Each one is densely packed with content that's directly useful to you.

Here for you

We help after the training is through.

Unlike other companies, we do more than training. In order to keep our skills sharp we have a deep engineering practice as well. This gives us and you an advantage - we’re able to help with architectural guidance and engineering after the workshop is done. We can help you apply the knowledge you've gained through the bedrock of practice.

Hands-on

We don’t believe in static, podium-based training.

Instead, SuperOrbital courses immerse your team in an active learning environment where they internalize the lessons through collaboration and hands-on workshops. The end result is knowledge that sticks, and a foundation for true expertise.

Unbiased

We give the best advice for your situation.

We believe in cloud native solutions, but we aren't beholden to any vendor. Every situation is unique, and every tool has flaws. We help you understand how the available solutions work together to solve your problems. We guide you away from the tools that are hype, and toward those that are battle tested.
