I provide inspirational Agile training (list below) and advice (coaching or consulting style) to leaders and teams creating digital product and services. Whether starting adopting Agile adoption or taking it further I help companies and teams work more effectively.
- Do you struggle to meet deadlines?
- Do you find software doesn’t get built as rapidly as you think it should?
- Do you agonise about prioritisation? Only to find priorities change the next day?
- Do you lack a sense of where the product is going? And when will it be done?
- Or maybe you simply want a more productive team?
If you answer Yes to any of these questions please call me (+44 203 286 4292):

Kanban & Technical training
I work with several associates to provide several more specialised courses:
Test Driven Development and other technical training workshops.
About my Agile software training
My Agile workshops highly interactive and more rehearsal than training – I get people doing agile in the classroom. The workshops make a great kick-off for a new team or new piece of work.
I believe people learn best from experience and make all my Agile training workshops very interactive.
I believe in training to create change rather than training for the sake of training.
I aim to deliver courses which equip attendees to immediately put their learning into action.
Unlike some larger training companies, when you book Allan Kelly, you get Allan Kelly, you get my wealth of experience and knowledge. You get someone who has not just written a book on Agile development, you get someone who has written multiple books on Agile methods and related subjects.
Bigger training companies often have a bench of trainers so you don’t know who you will actually get until late in the day. When it comes to training I created these courses I’m teaching material I know well and I’m more than happy to go off-piste and discuss how these techniques apply to your environment.
Private on site London, UK, worldwide
All courses can be customised on request.
Agile training is normally delivered in private on client site. Some public Agile product owners courses in partnership with Learning Connexions in London and we always try to meet any special requests.
Being West London based most of my training and consulting is in the UK. I get to Europe regularly and occasionally as far as the USA and Canada – I have even delivered agile software training in Australia for clients a few times.
I believe my prices are competitive, if you have a quote from another supplier for Agile software training I’ll do my best to beat it.
All quotes are fully inclusive of materials, travel and other expenses. I normally provide a free follow on consulting day with any workshop.
Prices vary depending on location and the number of people attending. For example, clients requesting Agile training in London normally receive a discount as travel costs are minimal. Clients requiring more than one class also receive significant discounts on repeats.
Certified Agile training
What you won’t find here is certified Agile training. With the exception of a few Kanban courses I offer with partners none of my Agile training courses are certified. My Agile training will inspire your staff and give them the tools to make a change.
I may not be a certified Agile trainer but my qualifications speak for themselves: read my books, my journal articles, my presentations, my blog and judge for yourself. Should I mention I have an MBA? Or spent 20 years programming? Better still, read my client reviews and I’ll put you in touch with past clients so you can certify me for yourself.
