Pioneer Membership

The world is changing rapidly. Survival is more critical than ever! Shiftup Pioneer members are pioneers at the intersection of agility, innovation, and customer experience. We believe there is too much focus on specific methods, models, and frameworks. Companies can only move forward when they learn how design, development, marketing, and management can integrate into one holistic approach. Together, we learn how.

Besides having access to all our webinars, meetups, and exclusive downloads, pioneer members can participate fully in our (optional) qualification program. The Agility & Innovation Qualification Program is a global self-development program focused on getting people to work collaboratively on their knowledge and experience, through experimentation, discussion, and reflection. We measure when people have put in enough effort and then we reward them with an official qualification award. This program is different from any other program you have tried. It’s better, newer, and harder.

By becoming a Pioneer, you can attend for free the meetups of our self-paced workshops. When any seats are unreserved, Pioneers will be offered the possibility of joining before Explorers and free members. Interested in our ICAgile-certified self-paced programs? You can get more information here.

Shiftup Pioneer membership is for people interested in experimenting with modern practices for business agility, product innovation, and customer experience. There is too much focus on specific methods, models, and frameworks. As a community, we figure out how we must be agile and innovative and focused on the total experience.

The Agility & Innovation Qualification Program is a gamified self-development program for people who are interested in preventing or fixing failed agile transformations and helping to shape the future together.
