Agile Product Development Training

Programs for building R&D leadership, management and agile project skills

Concise, Practical Learning Programs

Since 2002, Auxilium has helped hundreds of product development teams and thousands of individuals build new skills through practical learning programs that get results. Our seminars and workshops focus on key roles in engineering, project management and product management to help R&D leaders plan and execute product development work with their teams to continuously get better project outcomes. Our learning programs are focused in two R&D leadership categories:

  • Engineering Leadership – Influence-oriented competencies for leading organizations and project teams.
  • Agile Project Management – Methodology-oriented competencies for product development organizations adopting agile practices beyond software development.

Learn On Your Schedule

Our online or in-person programs are flexible to fit your needs. Group online sessions can range from two hours to a full day and can be customized to your goals, process, and challenges. Onsite workshops can also be customized and are typically scheduled for 2-4 consecutive days, depending on the topics and depth of learning needed.

Some of our programs are scheduled regularly as open sessions, with most only available privately for groups or individuals. Private sessions for individuals are a combination of training and coaching, with focus on the leader’s specific challenges.
