The training aims to introduce participants to an agile approach to project implementation and product delivery. Based on Scrum and Kanban methods, we show how to efficiently organize work in a dynamic environment, referring to the specifics of the implementation of projects in your companies.

As practitioners unanimously emphasize, agility is not only about methods and tools, but above all about a way of thinking. Therefore, the result of the training is not only to provide participants with a set of practical techniques used in the Agile environment, but also to show them in the context of the principles and concepts behind agility.

At the same time, in the course of engaging discussions, we point out that agile projects are not a panacea. Therefore, we juxtapose agile methods with the classic approach, showing the advantages and disadvantages of each approach and indicating the premises signaling when to use a given approach and when they can be combined to optimize activities.

Training methods

During the training, participants work in subgroups on sample projects. Both during the Scrum and Kanban parts, we select examples so that they are based on the business and technical reality of the companies. Using these examples, participants practice the tools and methods shown during the training.

The topics are covered through alternating concise lectures, discussions and practical exercises. During the classes, numerous moderated discussions are initiated, when participants share their experiences in individual aspects. The whole is enriched by numerous examples from the trainer’s design practice, short video materials and illustrations of selected topics in supporting software. Selected elements of the training are related to tools supporting work in the Agile environment, e.g. Redmine, JIRA, Trello

After the class, participants receive an e-mail with additional materials, including practical document templates and recommended literature. Open contact with the trainer is also provided indefinitely, should there be a need for short consultations.
