One of the most exciting developments in the last few years is the set of approaches focused on experiment driven product strategy and development. Large organizations are shifting from "can we build it?" to "should we build it?" by leveraging early experimentation to de-risk product initiatives. In this interactive 2-day workshop, we introduce core tools and concepts related to Lean Startup, Business Model Generation and Customer Development to enable an experiment-driven product approach. During this collaborative workshop, you will design a new business and gain hands-on experience through validated learning.

Start your agile transition by scheduling a free consultation. An OrgAgility coach will work with you to understand your needs, assess the project or organization, develop an initial plan, and share the proposal for your agile transition with you.

This activity provides the agile team with direct experience in the key concepts and practices of iteration reviews, iteration retrospectives and how to incorporate the feedback gained into their ongoing planning and process improvement efforts.

A list of Agile product backlog items becomes hard to manage and visualize when dealing with a large number of stories. We'll discuss and experiment with ways to make sense of the backlog and work through a couple of hands-on exercises to create story maps.

OrgAgility

During this 4-day hands-on workshop, we will discuss and fill-in an A3 for the initiative you are responsible for. For each section of the A3, we'll review the relevant Lean tools, look at examples, and then use those tools each afternoon.

This course can be delivered in a two hour, 1/2 day or full day format. It is intended to be taken by top management either in preparation for transitioning their organization to Lean-Agile methods or just to learn more about Lean Software Development. The length of the class depends on the depth required.

This 2-day hands-on training class will focus on providing a deeper exploration into the key ScrumMaster practices and responsibilities. The advanced topics include how to effectively formulate high-performing teams; how to design and facilitate more effective retrospectives; as well as advanced planning, metrics and reporting techniques.

TRaining & Workshops

During this 1-day course, senior management will develop a clear vision of the business outcomes they expect to achieve by becoming more agile. This will include a deep dive into the existing processes, structures, rules and beliefs that underlie the existing organization, and the evaluation of those structures against their goal for agility. This insight will lead to organization specific discussions to develop plans and structures to support the transition.
