Agile for Teams

We believe that the team is the unit of delivery, whether in software or other teams. Having clarity and alignment of mindset and practices is key to work successfully together towards a shared objective. 
 
Our most popular training, the 2-day  ‘Agile for Teams’ course provides a level-set in knowledge among everyone who is a member of a team using Agile. Using a current project the team works on, the course equips the participants with a common understanding of the central tenets of Agile practice. We support them in working as a team to form a practical framework for implementing Agile in daily team operations.

Our training is:

  • Relevant. All our trainers are practitioners and work with delivery teams when they are not training. We bring the training to life with war stories and case studies.

  • Pragmatic. The training is methodology agnostic and focuses on practices, tools and techniques that work.

  • Hands-on. You will experience Agile ways of working through simulations, exercises and discussion.

Get in touch with us via training@pragma.team to discuss running this training in your organisation.


What you'll learn to do

In the morning you’ll be introduced to the principles and practices of Agile. Over the day we’ll prepare you to work more effectively in an Agile environment, practising techniques and the mindset.

We will use a current project that the your team is working on, allowing you to experience an initiative discovery, followed by simulated sprints working as a team.

You will build a toolkit of techniques and behaviours needed to successfully collaborate as an Agile team.
