Scrum The Toyota Way is a fully accredited and certified class.

Learn at the heart of Lean in a real world operating environment. Go inside the company and hear from those that are delivering agility in the world’s highest regarded and most respected automotive company. The birthplace of lean and the genesis for many Agile concepts.

Learn Scrum the way the creators intended it to be taught and hear from a trainer who learned from the creators and taught others on behalf of the co-creator.

Learn the roots of The Toyota Production System and the tools and techniques that make Toyota the Gold standard in Lean, direct from the creators of Lean, and from a trainer who is an expert in how Toyota does what Toyota does better than anyone else.

Experience how Toyota is learning and using Scrum and see real world examples of their successes and challenges. Experience true openness and transparency as they share their journey with you, and teach you the patterns that work, and give you the tools and knowledge to take back into your world and succeed.

Join your trainer Nigel Thurlow, Chief of Agile, and his team as they guide you through two fun filled and energetic days of learning to apply deep systems thinking concepts, lean tools and behaviors, together with the Scrum Framework and Agile mindset.

Not a one size fits all approach, just deep learning of Scrum coupled with all the patterns being used by some of the best Agile teams in the world. Learn how to use Scrum to build amazing teams and create the environments for success. Learn how to apply Toyota thinking and Toyota tools to enable greater agility and deliver Customer 1st value.

Deliverables--What You Will Learn

Students who take this unique course will learn a common language and knowledge base of the Scrum Framework, and the ability to start practicing Scrum or interact with other teams utilizing Scrum methodologies.

Participants will gain a deeper understanding of the Toyota Production System-based upon Lean methodologies--and how the DNA of Toyota is deeply intertwined with Scrum and Agile. Students will learn how to identify non-value-added work and how to optimize product flow.

A critical part of a successful Scrum transformation is the broader training of the teams to ensure that they share a common foundation of understanding and know WHAT they are doing, as well as WHY.

This is a unique opportunity to learn from the best in a real working transformational environment and master Scrum The Toyota Way!
