Event description

Description

Drawn by the promise of accelerated delivery, higher product quality, happier customers, and a more engaged workforce, companies of all sizes across multiple industries are turning to Scrum and Kanban to manage their work efforts.

What sparked the Agile movement? What has fueled its growth and enabled it to expand far beyond the realm of software development? And what does the understanding and application of agile mean to you, your business, and your organization?

Join seasoned Agile coaches and trainers Tony Register and Kert Peterson in a two-part immersive Agile Foundations workshop hosted by UNCC’s Systems Engineering and Engineering Management program.

What you will learn
Through a dynamic blend of lecture, visual diagrams, hands-on exercises, and small-group dialogue, this workshop will convey essential agile concepts and deliver a feel for agility and its applications. Topics covered include:

  • origins of the Agile movement
  • the Scrum framework
  • the Kanban Method
  • predictive vs. adaptive project management
  • the 4 key transitions in an Agile transformation
  • mastering the Product Backlog

In this Part 1 workshop, we’ll focus on the mechanics of the scrum framework and the kanban method as well as the theory, values, and principles that underpin these approaches.

We’ll contrast the relevance and appropriate application of conventional project management and consider the 4 key transitions in an Agile Transformation.

See the Part 2 workshop description for additional details on the February workshop and to register.

Who should attend?

Any individuals seeking to gain clarity and a deeper understanding of the Agile movement and how it might be applied to their projects, in their personal lives and in their workplace.
