Agile Fundamentals 

Ever wonder what it is like to work on an agile team? Puzzled by what exactly the difference is between being agile and being lean? Then this workshop is for you. 

Sure, on paper agile is simple and straightforward. When the rubber meets the road, though, and we start adopting an agile way of working, reality quickly proves to be much more complex than expected. Starting an agile way of working requires learning new concepts and practices, such as iterative time-boxes, user stories, agile ceremonies, and new roles. An agile way of working also requires un-learning old habits that have been ingrained for years and sometimes decades. 

This workshop teaches you the fundamentals necessary for successfully starting an agile way of working. The workshop takes you on an agile journey starting with a basic iterative way of working. From there, agile practices are layered on. Together, we learn about and get to experience how agile ceremonies work, what purpose the agile work board serves, what user stories are and how to estimate them using story points, and what the agile team roles are. From the basic agile practices, we continue to explore a lean and continuous flow way of working. We cover lean practices such as:

·      limiting work in progress;

·      pulling work;

·      increasing cross functionality;

·      minimizing waste; and

·      optimizing the whole  

This workshop is not technical and is recommended for all team members new to agile. Games, simulations and group discussions reinforce the principles and practices learned. The workshop is necessary for anyone beginning their agile journey and wants to lay a solid foundation for the transformation ahead.
