Make your own teams better with our unique training and coaching approach

The most cost-effective way to improve your delivery capability is to give your own people all of the skills they need to succeed.

Regardless of your current delivery model, we can help you upskill your existing teams and set them, and you, up for success.

Our industry-standard training courses and workshops are complemented with a supporting option for our leading consultants to sit alongside them when they return to work to help them make the most of the new skills they’ve just learned.

Agile Training and Coaching

Is your agile team ready to take ownership of the quality of your products? To enable quality product delivery at speed, risks must be understood and mitigated by the whole team, not just the testers.

You should be aiming to build quality not test for it.

We can upskill your organisation with the approaches and best practice thinking that will make a material difference to how you perform.

Some of the courses and workshops we provide;

  • Risk Based Testing: A workshop that trains your teams to design test approaches for your products that are focused on mitigating the risks that impact your business and customers
  • Design for Testability: A workshop focused on how to design and build systems that can be tested efficiently to assess risk quickly and provide actionable insights
  • Exploratory Testing: A one-day high-level or more hands on two-day practical course that will provide your people with an understanding of Exploratory Testing
  • Behaviour-driven Development: A coaching programme on how to use ‘3 amigo’ collaboration and tools such as Serenity BDD that enable teams to build in quality from design through to delivery

We also deliver training and certification in;

  • ISTQB Foundation Level Agile Tester - The Agile Tester course will give your people an excellent grounding how to approach testing within Agile projects and achieve high performance within that environment
  • ISTQB Advanced Level Test Automation Engineer – If your teams have reached a stage in their careers where they’re ready to develop their skills and operate in more technical roles, this course will give you the opportunity to build more efficient testing into your projects
  • SAFE 5.0 Scaled Agile for Teams - Develops the qualities, practices and approaches that your people need to form high-performing Agile Delivery Teams

Our optional add-on coaching service is available for all of our courses to ensure that what your team has just learned is immediately put to use in your own delivery environment.

At Standard Life Aberdeen we, like many organisations, have had to adapt and respond to the challenges resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. 2i’s support has been instrumental in helping us maintain productivity and deliver our key milestones, across a number of programmes, within a global remote working environment.

They were quick to help us introduce tools and processes to support this working environment including the deployment of MS Teams and Kanban boards. Their dedication to our agile transformation goals during this crisis has resulted in a heightened level of support, adapted ways of working, strong communication and enhanced assurances provided to teams who are working from home.
