BDD Academy

An Integral part of your lean and agile transformation

Great trainings are about learning. Not teaching.

We believe great trainings are about learning, not teaching. Time for participants learning and for collaborative practice is maximized. Trainers keep their egos and their slides in the background. Participants can’t wait to apply what they tried out, and they often already have a plan for that, when the training is finalized.

Based on neurological science we let the participants connect to previous knowledge, explore concepts, use concrete practice and draw conclusions. Using principles found from the latest research around training and learning.

Internal courses  - 
Collaborative approach

As SAFe is not a one-stop solution it needs to be adapted for most organizations. The surrounding environment, that is not a part of SAFe, also needs to be known and used in a good way to make the most out of all training.

As a part of our collaborative approach, we work together with our customers to understand the transformation vision and wanted implementation.

This might need to adaptations of the courses so that they will be tailormade for your unique needs. However, participants will still be able to certify after the course since the tailor made parts are additions.

In addition to the SAFE courses we also have additional, BDD Academy developed, courses that will complement the organizations learning.

A continuous follow up, in the light of relentless improvements,  of the need of further adaptations is of course also needed. 

Open courses

Most of our courses are also run as open courses, as a complement to our internal courses. Open courses gives you an opportunity to explore a new course or a new field. The networking in an open course is also extensive, giving you the chance to learn a lot from peers in other industries. All our open courses are found here.

Watch out for the go!
