About the course
This highly interactive 2-day training course introduces participants to the fundamentals of agile and the mindset required for a more agile way of working. We explore the Agile Manifesto and Principles and Modern Agile to gain insight into why we want to use agile thinking.
We work through key elements of two of the most popular agile frameworks – Kanban and Scrum, and learn practical techniques for visioning and stakeholder and product backlog management. Participants gain a common agile language and practical ideas for applying their learning back at work.
The training is targeted at a variety of roles and is designed for participants with little or mixed agile experience, who want to fast-track their understanding of what it means to “be agile”.
At the end of the course, active participants will also be accredited with the internationally recognised ICAgile Professional Certification. This is their gateway to more advanced specialist ICAgile certifications if they wish to undertake more advanced training.
We take a different approach to training and use our own agilePete mind mapping app and iPads instead of powerpoint to provide course information digitally so you can personalise it as you learn.
Explore the Agile Manifesto and Principles, popular agile implementations and a generic agile framework.
Introduce the benefits and challenges of an agile mindset.
Build a common agile language across the whole team.
Experience the different agile approaches used by Kanban and Scrum.
Learn techniques for setting up your product for success.
Gain practical insight of retrospectives as a way to actively inspect and adapt.
Bring another member of your project team and you will both receive our 20% Agile Buddy discount. We have found that if you have an immediate sounding board for your new ideas you are more likely to apply what you learned in the real world context of your own project.
If you are seeking a formal qualification this course will also prepare you to confidently sit your Professional Scrum Master exam after the course. The exam is independently certified by scrum.org.
We give everyone that completes our training course our personal commitment to support your ongoing agile learning. We are always available via email for general questions about anything agile related and by cell phone if you have an issue that needs an immediate answer. But be warned, you may become as equally passionate about agile as we are!
