About the course
This is a fun 1-day agile training course that provides an initial introduction to the benefits and challenges of changing to an agile way of working and thinking. Agile Introduction is targeted at specialist professional staff in your organisation that you want to expose to a more agile way of thinking about their work. The course focuses on helping participants understand how to adapt their traditional role and the way they work in order to remain effective in an agile world.
This course is designed to support a mix of specialist disciplines but can also be adapted to focus on specialist groups, e.g. Procurement, Risk, Finance, Assurance, Project Managers and Business Change.
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.
Agile thinking: Explore the Agile Manifesto and Principles, popular agile implementations and a generic agile framework

Note: The Agile Introduction course is based on the rules, events, and roles as described in the official Scrum Guide 2017, the acknowledged Scrum body of knowledge.
