Ulrika Ekbohm är HR-chef på Svenska Spel och gick Power-Up-Programmet våren 2020. Hör mer om hennes erfarenheter i videon.

This interview is in Swedish.

Thomas AC Kofoed, DK, Professional Agile Coach & Scrum Master

"Big shout out to Dandy People and their Agile Power-Up Program! We worked with topics like Agile principles, Flow, feedback loops, Agile teams, Business Agility, Cynefin, conflict resolution, you name it.
I have been to several classes, certifications during my 10 years in this community and I can strongly recommend this one👌

4 weeks of intensive agile training ! 4 top of the class Agile coaches! Whats not to like :-) Practical exercises, online games, and self-study. This program is so much more valuble than many other 2 days courses.

Dandy People! Sign me up for next round."

Testimonial

Matthew Hall, UK, Interim Manager

"I would strongly recommend Dandy People’s Agile Power-Up Program to anyone who wants to learn more about how an Agile mindset can improve the ways you do business.

Dandy People’s team of high-energy, friendly, and experienced coaches and trainers, led by founder Mia Kolmodin, is ready throughout the course to answer questions, share experience and offer practical support to help participants build an Agile Toolbox.

After the course, participants are encouraged to stay in touch and currently have free access to the on-line library of support material, a very deep and insightful resource.

 

Testimonial

Jesper Ingvardtsen, DK
Senior ScrumMaster at SimCorp

"Without doubt the best Agile program I’ve ever attended. 4 weeks of intensive Agile training with fellow Agilists - both new and more experienced.

Brilliant combination of theory and practical exercises conducted as selfstudy, homework and online sessions, facilitated by highly skilled Agile coaches. Definitely exceeding my expectations and worth the investment.

With this program Dandy People has created a format that has unlimited potential. I will gladly attend a future part two of this program."

"The straightforward and not to long videos and texts in the training material along with the positive energy in the visuals makes it really easy to assimilate the information. 

An extra bonus is that the material is available for a long time afterwards. I was positively surprised of how much I enjoyed the coaching-sessions and the workshops where I really came to appreciate the discussions with my classmates and coaches."

"Konkreta roliga övningar, generösa ledare och härlig stämning! Jag har fått med mig en massa bra idéer och metoder som verkligen kommer att bidra till mitt fortsatta experimenterande i vardagen."

Participants from Class in May - June 2020

"A really great course with fantastic coaches, great feedback and help along the way. Got a deeper understanding of all things Agile and we got a lot of useful tools to bring into our work after the course. Can't recommend it enough."

"The 4 week agile training was a great inspiration to execute agile coaching and how to help people over in a agile mindset. it gave a lot of new tools to just pick and use in my everyday. during the 4 weeks i was all so inspired to reflection and got to new aspects of the agile way of working - so a great thanks to the team of coaches and the all the participants who shared their experience."

"The number of participants in each class is purposely kept low to make sure that everyone has the chance to actively learn and share their experiences for the benefit of students and the Dandy team." /Matthew Hall, UK, Interim Manager
