Agile Fundamentals

Agile Fundamentals Connexxo TrainingIf 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!
