Event Details

Agile Beginnings Workshop

  • Are you new to agile and confused about how it could possibly work?
  • Are you beginning to understand the concepts and principles, but need to see them in practice?
  • Have you heard about agile project management or self-organizing teams and wonder how they are different from what you do today?
  • Have you heard about a business person working with the delivery team but can't imagine how they actually work together?
  • Do you wonder what a Scrum Master is really the master of? Or what a Product Owner actually owns?
  • Are you unsure how to answer that senior manager who wants to know when you will be done?

TravelerThen this workshop is for you. Whether you are a project manager, business analyst, developer, tester, architect, product manager, team leader, business manager, quality control analyst, or simply "agile curious" this workshop is your chance to get some hands on experience with agile practices. Come roll up your sleeves and jump into a day of activities, exercises, and interactive discussions that will let you touch and feel agile practices and take them out for a spin.

Learn By Doing

With our guidance, you and your fellow agile travelers will define a project and then travel together as an agile team to organize the work, set priorities, make progress visible and respond to changes; all in keeping with agile principles. Learn to:

Learning Wordle
  • Create a product backlog
  • Estimate in relative terms
  • Set value based priorities
  • Plan in iterations
  • Assess progress toward goals
  • Reflect to improve
  • Using the Scrum project management framework, we will take you step by step through a project. We will play some games, do some exercises, and learn agile practices and the principles behind them. Come prepared to participate and interact in order to discover your own learning outcomes and how they can best serve you.
