HOW WE CAN WORK TOGETHER?
I can work with you via email, telephone, face-to-face, or any combination of the three below.
1. PERSONAL COACHING
I love traveling and working with teams internationally, so if you are somewhere other than the USA don’t fret, I can usually get to you as long as my personal safety is not at risk (for example, I unfortunately cannot work with “terrorist states” as defined by the current laws of the USA).
If you are interested in pursuing this further, please contact me directly.
2. TRAINING – PUBLIC OR PRIVATE
Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) Workshop
Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) Workshop
Advanced Scrum (Scrum in the Real World)
Custom Training Workshops Available
You can view my current public workshops here.
If you have enough people for a group internally I can come to your location for a private session. If you’d like to host a public session at your location, please contact me.
If you request a private workshop, you will normally receive the regular public workshop (not customized for your environment); I usually recommend engaging me either a day before or after the normal CSM workshop in order to address the specific needs in your organization.
Whatever works for YOU! Let’s talk.
This is a great way to chat when we cannot physically meet face-to-face.
CREATING A CONTRACT WITH MICHAEL
It’s pretty easy.
You say you want to work with me, we agree on a price and time and place, I deliver, and you pay me. I am not the cheapest or lowest cost provider out there. I do deliver some extreme value for what you pay me.
Whatever else needs to be worked out logistically, legally, and via paperwork we can work through. This part of the process should never be considered rocket science or get in the way of us working together.
Let’s keep everything fair and up-front in our business relationship and we can work together for a long time to come (well, actually the question of “how long” is totally up to you).
I know from past experience people buy from — and work with — people who they like.
If you do not like me, well, then you do not need to work with me. Just remember, the same rule applies from my point of view too. Don’t worry, there are only a few people in my past that have not thoroughly enjoyed working with me.
I publicly share my profile from www.linkedin.com because it shows you real people — some who you may have heard of — who have recommended my work in the past. You may have noticed I also do not have a list of all the “companies” or other organizations I have worked with. Here is the main reason: I sign non-disclosure agreements with my clients.
And. I honor them.
Google me. Do your due diligence.
Please expect me to do the same with you (smile).
If you are interested in pursuing any combination of options further, remember that I am pretty flexible (in case you did not realize this already).
Please contact me directly.
