AgilePool is one of the top successful Agile-Lean training, coaching, and consulting providers with wide exposure in Bulgaria and Europe.
The initiative started in 2015 when Nikola Bogdanov decided to design and lead his own academic class “Agile Methodologies” at Sofia University, Bulgaria.
One year later, in 2016 Nikola Bogdanov and his brother Bogoy Bogdanov decided to establish AgilePool Ltd. with the goal to guide organizations to the future of work. They have worked with software companies to help them improve their efficiency by running Agile-Scrum training workshops and provide ongoing coaching.
While time was passing more and more organizations within and outside of IT partnered successfully with AgilePool, which made the company a leader in the Agile-Lean training and consulting domain in Bulgaria.
Nowadays, Nikola and Bogoy are the most recognizable faces in the regional Agile world and are regular participants in some of the biggest conferences in Bulgaria and Europe. They had exposure as speakers in Prague, London, Bristol, Sarajevo, Belgrade, Cambridge, Sofia, and others.
As a result of their effort and professionalism, more than 10 different organizations were consulted successfully, helping them with training workshops, supporting their Agile transformation, and coaching various organizational leadership groups.
