Lean and agile for teams
Lean and agile empower teams
The power of agility is that management and product owners decide what needs to be built, and that the teams decide how they will build it.
Agile teams are multi-functional and self-governing. The product owner is responsible to understand what is value for the customer, the scrum master or agile coach helps the team, but how to perform the work is ultimately up to the team.
Collaboration is the name of the game
The agile team is a collaboration of people with different roles. We need a functional analyst to work together with programmers and testers inside the team, because we want close interaction and fast feedback when building software, or any other product for that matter.
We let the participants experience how team collaboration works, with requirements in the form of user stories, team involvement in planning, daily stand-ups to keep the feedback loops short, a demo at the end of the Sprint to show the results, and a retrospective to reflect on how we can improve the way of working and the interactions in the team.
The participants will be immersed for a day in the agile way of interacting, of tackling problems, of organizing work and of creating value in a continuous flow. Scrum, Kanban, some elements of XP, Design Thinking, we will touch on all of them.
This training uses interesting and fun exercises to make the learning experience more vivid and entertaining. And help create the change in behavior that agile requires.
The Positive Leadership Short introduction seminar is a nice eye opener to the challenges when interacting with people in a team leadership or change context.
