Agile for Teams – December 6th (Class is Full)

Workshop Description:

More teams than ever before are seeing the importance of shifting to a paradigm of learning and quickly adapting to change. Some teams focus on Lean. Others on Agile. Few teams leverage the power of using Lean and Agile together to take their team to the next level.

According to VersionOne’s Annual State of Agile report, the three most common reasons teams are looking to agile adoption are:  Accelerate software delivery (75%), Manage changing priorities (64%), Increase productivity (55%).

This workshop will focus on how folks on the ground can challenge the status quo and apply Lean and Agile values and principles to help build a unified team and deliver the highest value to customers.

Key Concepts:

  • Learn why so many teams are combining Lean & Agile principles to accelerate value delivery
  • Hands on experience of Lean & Agile fundamentals for teams
  • Overview of Scrum and Kanban, the two most popular Agile methodologies
  • Walk through successful patterns and anti-patterns for teams
  • Walk through a mock example of how a team can visualize work and use a data-driven approach to forecast future value delivery
  • Open forum to discuss what’s most pressing for your organization

How You Benefit:

Upon completion of this workshop, you will have hands-on experience of what it feels to be a part of a Lean-Agile team and what patterns high-performing teams use to enable a culture of learning and adapting to change.
