Meet Your Trainer

The course is delivered by Iain McKenna, an accredited Certified Scrum Trainer (CST) from the UK who has successfully used Scrum together with other Agile and Lean frameworks over many years. Iain has not only trained many people in Scrum but has extensive experience “from the trenches” in using Scrum with a large variety of organisations.

Top 3 reasons for taking a course with Iain:

  • Practical guidance from first-hand experience. Over a decade implementing Scrum in dozens of organisations means that Iain’s guidance is grounded in real world challenges and is highly practical.
  • Insightful and inspiring. As past course participants testify, you can expect to take away many deep insights into the nature of Scrum and its potential to transform your organisation and your work life for the better.
  • Post-course follow-up. Iain believes that your training course is the start of a lifelong journey of continuous improvement and he is available to assist you on that journey in any way possible.

“A good Product Owner drives delivery of value to customers and users and therefore plays a critical role in a Scrum team.”

Iain McKenna, trainer.


  • Should I consider SAFe certification?

    Open or Close

    The Scaled Agile Framework is a brilliant and detailed framework referred to when Agile is used in larger organisations. SAFe is a good framework to understand since it adds a few additional roles and ceremonies to KANBAN and SCRUM forming a framework that can scale for large teams and organisations. Should you be looking for answers to scaling an Agile implementation or Agile for larger cross-functional teams, SAFe is a good course to consider.

    The SCRUM framework also has many scaling options for instance by introducing SCRUM or SCRUM ceremonies or looking into due track SCRUM.

  • Does the SCRUM and Product Owner course cover Kanban principles?

    Open or Close

    The SCRUM course does not cover KANBAN. DVT does, however, combine SCRUM and KANBAN in a 3-day course that covers both. SCRUM and KANBAN can be combined in forming an Agile framework specific to your environment yet utilising the best elements of two brilliant frameworks. Agile Coaching is a vital part in customising an Agile framework to work for your unique environment and unique challenges.

  • Does the course cover Lean?

    Open or Close

    The core idea of Lean is to maximise customer value while minimising waste. All Agile Frameworks (including SCRUM and KANBAN) are based on the Lean principle with regards to value-driven focus and minimising any waste. In fact Lean is more focused on the mindset and thinking which overlaps brilliantly with regards to any Agile framework as both is based on the same principles and values.

    • Agile Fundamentals course – A good introduction to Agile and to a few Agile frameworks
    • SCRUM training – Still the most commonly used framework in Agile
    • KANBAN training – A very popular Agile framework that can be applied to any area or work stream (including HR, Marketing and Finance)
    • Certified SCRUM Master training – geared towards the Scrum Master role, yet extremely valuable for any member of the Scrum Team.
    • Certified SCRUM Product Owner training – geared towards the business and management role within the organisation yet valuable for the Project and Program Management role within the organisation. We would also recommend the training to innovation driven teams.
