Agile Meetups with Michigan Technology Services

Michigan Technology Services offers instructor-led Agile and Scrum training and coaching.

In a pre-Covid world our training would take place at our location in the Farmington Hills/Novi area, 20 miles outside of Detroit, or at your location anywhere around the world. Our Agile workshops and Agile coaching sessions are now offered online/virtually, reducing your need to travel.

While many trainers fly into metro Detroit to deliver Scrum and Agile classes at a hotel, and then leave, we live here and support the local Agile community.   We continue to sponsor regional Agile conferences and meetups. We have successfully run Agile and Certified ScrumMaster, Product Owner and Agile Leadership courses for multiple teams from globally recognized organizations.

We are planning a series of free virtual meetups for our Agile friends.

Why meetups?

Several of our instructors and coaches have agreed to discuss Agile topics for an hour or more. We know some pretty awesome trainers, and we expect some great conversations. Meetups offer you an opportunity to learn about a topic in a short amount of time, and also let you network with other Agilists in our community. We never charge our friends to attend a meetup.
