FREE An Introduction to Agile
Our very popular introductory workshop gives you a comprehensive overview of Agile from its origins to the different roles on a team, the artifacts you will create and use, and the lifecycle of a project.
We will describe what an Agile project looks like and how it's run, including processes such as sprint planning, estimation, demonstrations and retrospectives.
We'll talk about the improvements we've seen in projects and organisations that have adopted Agile, such as better communication, clearer specifications, less waste and less rework, improved prioritisation and planning, and happier, more productive teams.
We'll also address the challenges you may face when Agile practices are introduced into your organisation for the first time.
At the end of the workshop, we'll run a quick retrospective so you can tell us what you liked and what we can improve on. Retrospectives support continuous improvement, one of the core principles of Agile, and you will get hands-on experience of this key practice.
Topics covered include:
* What is Agile and where has it come from
* The differences between Agile and traditional Waterfall development
* Roles: product owner, scrum master, scrum team
* Artifacts: user stories, product backlog, sprint backlog
* The sprint rhythm: sprint planning, estimation, demonstration, retrospective
* Benefits you can expect and challenges you may encounter
This workshop is intended for anyone working in an organisation or on a project team who wants to learn about how Agile can make their projects more successful. No experience with Agile is necessary. Due to its popularity, each Introduction to Agile workshop is limited to two participants per group or company.
