I conduct both open and corporate training. The training can be with an already accredited program and those providing certificates to participants or shaped for specific company needs.
All trainings are designed for deep understanding and elaboration of new knowledge and skills. There will not be “water”, but only practical aspects, based on experience. I do not talk about what I did not try in practice myself.
I have been teaching people since 2007. My training experience counts more than 4000 hours. During this time, more than 5,000 people were trained. As Agile Coach, I helped more than 60 teams to embrace Agile approaches and introduce practices. Consulting, Training, and coaching I provided to teams from 14 countries. All training can be conducted in both English and Russian.
Any of my trainings can be adapted to the needs and priorities of the company or a team.

Agile Program and Portfolio Management (ICP-PPM) Training
The Program and Portfolio Management (ICP-PPM) is one of two Continuous Learning Certifications on the Delivery Management track at International Consortium for Agile (ICAgile) education roadmap. This certification focuses on applying agile management principles beyond projects to programs, portfolios, and broader organizational contexts. The learning objectives take a methodology-neutral approach and course providers may teach key concepts using one of the industry-leading scaling frameworks like SAFe (Scaled Agile Framework) and using a people-centric transformation approach.
Leading SAFe® Training
Leading SAFe training highlights the principles and practices of Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe® 4.5), which is relevant for Agile scaling in large companies, consisting of many dependent teams and projects. At the conclusion of the class, participants are allowed to take the SAFe Agilist certificate.
SAFe® Product Owner/Product Manager Training

Finally, attendees learn about the Continuous Delivery Pipeline and DevOps culture, how to effectively integrate as Product Owners and Product Managers, and what it takes to relentlessly improve the ART. Attending the class prepares individuals to take the exam and become a certified SAFe® 4.5 Product Owner/Product Manager.
SAFe® Release Train Engineer Training
Through experiential learning, attendees will examine the RTE role in a Lean-Agile transformation. They will learn how to facilitate ART processes and execution, coach leaders, teams, and Scrum Masters in new processes and mindsets.
