about us

Nice to
meet you


The Road 2 Mastery is an Agile Learning journey where agile professionals support each other in finding better ways. After all, the first sentence of the Agile Manifesto reads:

We are uncovering better ways of developing software by doing it and helping others do it.


The Road 2 Mastery is established by Sjoerd Nijland.  Sjoerd is also the founder of Serious Scrum. Sjoerd is a distinguished trainer and business author.

Sjoerd has directed and coached many digital implementations for various brands, such as Bugaboo, Sjoerd has achieved various acclaimed milestones, including Webby Awards nomination, Innovation Award (Transport), Red Dot Awards, including Best of the Best in both E-Commerce and Retail, and Winner of the 2016 Hackathon: Artificial Intelligence.

The Road 2 Mastery is further developed in collaboration with Xebia Academy.

In addition, the Road 2 Mastery is goverend by our well respected 'Guides'. These are professional trainers operating globally. And - perhaps most importantly, the Road 2 Mastery is the community.


Empowering Agile professionals worldwide to embark on an ever-evolving journey of growth and collaboration. Our vision is to cultivate a thriving international social hub where individuals enrich their career and learning paths through mutual support.

Rooted in the Agile Manifesto's ethos of continuous improvement and shared learning, we strive to maintain accessibility for a diverse global audience, fostering an independent brand identity that reflects inclusivity.

R2M transcends conventional training offerings; it serves as a dynamic platform where lifelong learning intersects with meaningful connections, propelling careers forward. Our commitment lies in sustained engagement beyond a mere transactional model.

We aspire to pioneer global in-person events and training expeditions, nurturing and mentoring guides while innovating new expeditions. Through outdoor leadership trails and expeditions, we aim to create transformative experiences that boost both mental and physical health while learning from each other's experiences.

Additionally, we endeavor to capture and share valuable testimonials and insights from participants through multimedia channels, inspiring others on their journey.
