Working in an Agile Team

Duration: 
1 days

Overview

The purpose of this highly immersive, two-day course is to help students to understand the principles of Agile and in particular, Scrum. They will work in teams to produce a piece of work over a series of sprints. In addition to understanding the rules of Scrum, the team will also appreciate how Scrum can be blended with other complementary practices such as Kanban. Students will experience the value of cross-functional teams and the benefits that Agile frameworks such as Scrum provide.

Thinking about Onsite?

If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. It's a cost effective option.

Submit an enquiry from any page on this site, and let us know you are interested in the requirements box, or simply mention it when we contact you.
