Software Education is delighted to announce that we are delivering our Practices of Agile Teams training course for M86 Security, the global expert in real-time threat protection and the industry’s leading Secure Web Gateway provider. Our chief knowledge engineer Shane Hastie is flying to M86’s R&D centre in Tel Aviv, Israel in July to deliver the Agile course and will then go on to M86’s offices in Orange County (O.C. ) in California to provide some consultancy services, following on from training he delivered to the O.C-based team last year.
This will be the first time that SoftEd has delivered a course in Israel, although we have always had a global reach with courses taking place in the U.K. and U.S. as well as Australia and New Zealand. We are proud to see that yet again knowledge from ‘down under’ has such influence across the world! M86 Security are a global organisation and our ability to work with them in Israel, the U.S. and New Zealand is a testament to our dedication to providing our customers with a tailor-made solution for their training requirements. Shane first gave a short Agile tutorial to the M86 Security research and development team in Auckland, which lead to more training for their New Zealand team and then the opportunity to work with the team in O.C., culminating now also with the trip to Israel. Thom Linden, SVP of Global Research and Development at M86 Security said, “To make a successful transition to Agile, training and coaching from experts, who have the right combination of knowledge and effective interaction skills are extremely valuable. SoftEd has achieved great results in mentoring our development teams to adopt practices and tools to successfully apply Agile in our business.”
Shane is looking forward to this trip, which adds to what has been a busy and exciting year for him with not only several training and public speaking engagements but also with his work with the IIBA defining the Agile Extension to the BABOK (Business Analysis Body of Knowledge). He is the only Australasian member of the committee developing BABOK version 3.0. Shane will also be speaking at Agile 2011 in Salt Lake City on 8 – 12 August with Steve Adolph.
