BeanStalk

Our Mission

Our mission is simple yet ambitious: to make impactful Agile education more accessible to people eager to grow. We have seen the impact an experienced coach/trainer can have on somebody’s career, and we believe that anyone, anywhere, should have the opportunity to experience this. Through our continued work guiding people and their organizations in Agile transformations, we are constantly exploring the skills, practices, and techniques that help people and teams improve and make an impact. And we are committed to growing the BeanStalk assessment and learning library to ultimately create a community of learners that can find guidance on how to improve, taking into account their role, maturity, and ambitions.
