COURSE DESCRIPTION

This interactive training session provides participants with a solid introduction to agile, an understanding of how organisations use it, and practical agile skills.

The trainer will be a highly experienced agile coach who will guide participants through a number of hands-on exercises, mixed with explanations of core agile concepts, and how they are used in practice.

Topics covered include: agile principles, frameworks, scrum, kanban, agile planning, user stories, estimation, acceptance criteria, product demos/review and retrospectives.

The session culminates in an extended exercise where, as a Scrum team, participants will plan, estimate and conduct a number of sprints to build a product for their Product Owner.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

The session has been attended by all levels in organisations and across various functions/roles needing to obtain a practical understanding of agile. The session has also been attended by those with existing agile experience wanting to broaden/refresh their knowledge and understanding of how others apply it. There are no pre-requisites.

WHAT PARTICIPANTS HAVE SAID

“I really enjoyed myself, it was interesting, informative and fun"

"I'd been on a similar session in my previous firm and this was easily the best. Good practical exercises bought the subject to life and would benefit anyone about to enter an agile project."

"workshop not only addressed course topics but also took input from the group at the start and factored them into the day"

"the day was just what we needed to bust some myths and re-focus our interactions to make sure we are working as efficient as we can"

“Great workshop pitched at the correct level by Stephen. Well worth waiting for.”

“The training verified my understanding of agile which has not been fully implemented at XXXX. I learnt better ways to work with the scrum team, of which i have already put into practice this week. "
