    What does it mean to be Agile? How is an agile team different from an integrated team? What’s all the fuss about and how can I see if agile will help me and my teams?

    About our session

    At the heart of Agility is a fundamental behavior change that encourages continuous feedback loops, iterative & incremental development to deliver customer value. The challenge lies in training and influencing teams to think small, move fast, and embrace AGILITY.

    In this interactive session, we will explore how to guide teams through an Agile journey in Three Acts.

    Act One: Setting the Stage for an Agile Discussion

    An overview of what it means to be Agile; an introduction to the Agile Manifesto and how the 12 Principles of Agile are used in real teams to think small and deliver more.

    Act Two: Changing hearts and minds to say it with Scrum

    An introduction to the Scrum Framework - how to move fast with Scrum. We will explore the Scrum roles of the Product Owner, Scrum Master, and Scrum Team and how these roles accelerate performance.

    Act Three: Using Scrum to embrace Agility

    An introduction to Scrum Team collaboration - Sprint Planning, Daily Scrum, Backlog Review, Sprint Reviews and Retrospectives.

    Epilogue: Applying Scrum from day one.
