Agile in Practice
We believe that the Agile values and practices apply to all parts of an organisation, not just the software development department.
Our 1-day ‘Agile in Practice’ training will help you foster an Agile mindset and give you confidence in using tools and techniques to work more effectively with your team and advocate for Agile ways of working.
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.
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’ll simulate a real scenario, allowing you to experience an initiative discovery, followed by sprints working as a team.
You will build a toolkit of techniques and behaviours needed to successfully transition your team to Agile ways of working.
