Northwest Cadence is thrilled to share with you details around our recent work with Microsoft and the Microsoft Virtual Academy (MVA). We helped create and deliver live, all-day trainings highlighting topics such as Agile, Lean, Git, and Kanban. We loved working on these Jump Starts because they emphasize our passion: helping teams improve their processes and practices.

Check out the MVA Jump Starts to get practical tips you can implement right away, and break free of rigid, process-oriented lifecycles. The sessions are led by seasoned professionals who have been in your shoes. They explore the technology, solutions, and mindset behind application lifecycle management (ALM).

In case you missed the live Jump Starts, don’t worry! You can watch them all online – for free! We’ve compiled the links below so that you can visit the MVA and check them out! Enjoy!

    I’ve just completed the Using Kanban and Fundamentals of Lean Software Delivery, and previously a couple of other ALM courses that Steve presented. All of them have been great learning experiences, much of which I’m currently in the processes of passing the knowledge to the rest of my team. Awesome courses.

    Thanks so much, Steve! I’m very happy to hear they were valuable! It was an amazing experience for me as well. I got to work with some of the brightest minds and most talented people I know!

    Again, thanks so much for providing this feedback! As you know from both the Kanban and Lean Software courses, feedback is absolutely fundamental to improve! ;-D

    Project managers prefer Scrum better than Kanban. It is more oriented toward systems while Scrum has a close affinity with project managers and stakeholders due to their presentation of processes and events. Both their workflows are alike, with the only exception of Scrum having their deadlines better demarcated.
