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?
