Agile Fundamentals: 4th & 5th November

During our two days Agile Fundamentals training you will gain theoretical and practical knowledge on Scrum and Kanban that will help you to start working Agile in your department or organization.

Focus will also lay on the new project management approach called Hybrid Project Management. This is gaining popularity and acceptance as it combines the best of the Agile approach - for what can't be planned - with the more traditional planned based approach, for what should be planned. It is interesting that this new approach can be applied to the majority of the projects.

During this course you will learn to:

  • Explain the benefits of working Agile in your working environment
  • Understand the essential mindset principles of Lean, Agile & Hybrid
  • Apply Scrum and Kanban principles
  • Understand the processes of Hybrid Project Management including the roles and responsibilities of a Scrum Master, Product Owner and the various forms of project teams within this context.
  • Recognize the patterns and anti-patterns that either stimulate or hold you back from working Agile

After our training session on Monday 4th, we have arranged a guest speaker, who will shortly talk to us about 'How people learn' and who will share insights in how changing your learning patters can be of use in Agile environments. During this 20 minute session, we offer you a delicious walking dinner and provide some time to network.
