Agile Fundamentals

Agile Fundamentals Connexxo Training

If what you need is a basic course on agile and Scrum in order to get your team started, look no further! Agile Fundamentals is our two-days basic course we deliver to teams who are willing to start working with agile methods.

This two-day course gives the basics of agility: what are the origins of agility, why we believe it is needed in a modern organisation, a solid understanding of Scrum and optionally of Kanban, the understanding of the various team roles and a basic introduction to the engineering practices.

The course is designed flexibly so we can adapt it to your needs: from beginners to teams who are already using agility in practice but want to finally understand why it works – we have delivered it in many possible configurations. We even have two one-day versions as agile introduction for management and for non-IT people. We will work for you to deliver the flavour you need: just share your needs with us!

This course is available only in-house.

Participants say...

Very interesting sssion, lot of interactions & discussions among participants.

Good activities and interactions and a lot of examples. Should be attended by the whole organisation, from management/business to developers.

Practical group exercises to “get to the point”!

This course is not limited to Scrum only, but also gives good insights on team management and human psychology.

The course is really good. I could learn a  lot. The presentation and the visual materials of the course are impressive. The interactive exercises help a lot to understand!
