Read the complete description

Over the years, I have provided 100+ training courses and workshops in the fields of Scrum, Agile Product Development, Kanban, and Personal Leadership. I have advised and coached 15+ different organizations within various industries like banking, healthcare, and retail. Before becoming an external consultant, coach, and trainer, i have been 5+ years part of different Scrum Teams as a Development Team member, Product Owner, and Scrum Master.

As an official Scrum.org licensed Professional Scrum Trainer and Accredited Kanban Trainer, I am trusted by the creators of Scrum and the Kanban Method to create the best possible foundation on which you can build upon in practice. As a by-product of your learning you will increase the chance of becoming certified. Below you will find an overview of all the certified Scrum & Kanban training courses I provide.

My training courses are characterized by minimizing use of Powerpoint slides, and maximizing iterative and incremental creation of visualisations on flip charts. These visualizations will help you recollect the lessons learned through the exercises we did, the conversations we had, and the reflections throughout the training course.

I believe that the best way to deliver a training course is by applying the values and principles from the Agile Manifesto on the training course itself. I practice what I preach.

"Informatief en superleuk aangekleed door Michel. Hij zorgde voor een goede sfeer en had slimme maniertjes om basis Scrum concepten uit te leggen. Je wist nooit echt wat het doel van een oefening was tot je er mee klaar was, dat vond ik wel clever gedaan en werkte goed voor mij. Wel weinig ruimte voor discussie over de toepasbaarheid in de realiteit. De theorie is leuk, maar kan niet werken in de praktijk als het zo rigide toegepast wordt. Kan me voorstellen dat dat echt bij de PSM I hoort, in tegenstelling tot II of III. Scrum theorie in ieder geval sterk uitgelegd." - 18-02-2024 12:31

"Amazing training, Matthijs leads and teaches by example in this training. Everything he does breathes scrum and that allowed me to learn so much more than in a classical training. Barely any slides are used, we learn by introspecting with ourselves and exercising as a group. Everything is captured on flip charts and all exercises use different facilitation techniques, which means you're learning while you're learning!
I couldn't recommend it enough." - 28-04-2023 07:31

"The course was well structured and accompanied with lots of colourful visuals on flip charts, which for me - as a very visual person - was great!
The order of topics was clear and there was enough diversion to keep focused. (no long "monologues" to listen to).
What I missed a bit were more practical examples to connect the theory with practical situations.
Overall a very pleasant experience and Michel certainly knows what he is doing as a trainer! :)" - 17-04-2023 09:55
