The course is divided into a half-day online introduction followed by 2 full days in-person where we can focus on practical aspects of running agile teams.  The sessions will consist of discussions and workshops where everyone will be encouraged to contribute.

Half-day – online – Agile mindset and fundamentals – An overview on how to approach any task in an agile way and the fundamental building blocks of agile.

In-person Day 1 – We’ll start with building Agile teams, helping your team build an agile framework within which they will do their work, and getting a good start on your agile project.

In-person Day 2 –  A review of agile ceremonies and how we can help the team adjust their work framework, getting what you need from the team to manage all those involved in the project, and how you’ll know when things are done so everyone can succeed.

Course Aims and Objectives

Participants will learn how to assemble a team that is focused on reaching the goal and how to embrace change during the process.  The main focus of the course will teach you to think in a more agile way with respect to teams and let go of the waterfall misconceptions of agile in practice.

Participants will understand how to embrace agile for themselves and their organisation, the fine balance of leading an agile team, and what it takes to succeed.


This course is open to individuals who have an understanding of how to lead a team and plan an agile project.  Some understanding of agile practices is useful but not required.
