This course gives the attendee practice in the core elements of team success: collaboration, delivery, reflection and improvement. Each part of the class introduces a topic matching the most recent advances in the agile world, including solutions-focused coaching, guest leadership, collaboration cards, project slicing, decisions as inventory, and building a culture of listening.

Group Discussions: Introducing key concepts needed to make use of modern agile development: Decisions flowing through an organisation, Cooperative games of invention and communication, Culture and leadership, Trimming projects into slices to follow changing needs and to meet deadlines.

Collaboration Cards: These cards are a special construction from Dr. Cockburn, following years of research into what improves collaboration. Learn to use these cards to improve your own collaboration, to work in teams and to notice how your colleagues are improving or hurting collaboration.

Improvement Exercise: The participants are split into teams with assignments to improve something that matters to them, using the tools in the project.

Decisions as deliverables: Designing a logo- Every design element is a decision. Which decisions should you test with the market first? This individual plus team activity highlights the topic.

Carpaccio Exercise: People work in pairs to construct a spreadsheet that will show the price of a product. The difficulty is not in making the spreadsheet, it is in learning to make the tiniest possible delivery stages so that the business earns the most, soonest, and can respond to changing market needs and changing deadlines. Having great significance to financial executives, it shows also how to manage a project for maximum effect.

Small Projects: Teams put these ideas together to work on small projects, using the ideas of collaboration, guest leadership, culture of listening, delivery in stages, reflecting and improving, all to practice the concepts learned in the class.

At the end of the course, receive a Heart of Agile Level A certificate showing your achievement.
