Go beyond the basics and learn tips and techniques necessary to help an organisation move beyond initial success to sustained agility.

Participants will learn advanced teamwork techniques including methods to subtly guide a self-organising team and ensure that all team members (including designers, architects and testers) are busy on each day of the sprint.

You Will Learn:
• How the same process used during transition can help spread agile or Scrum across the enterprise
• How the roles of project managers, functional managers, programmers, testers, data professionals, architects, analysts, and others change in an agile process
• Ways in which a leader can influence a self–organising team
• How to incorporate technical design, interaction design, and architecture into agile projects
• How improvement communities can drive the hard work of organizational change
• How to effectively structure teams, including how to make proper use of specialists

Participants will also consider what it means to be Agile while meeting regulatory compliance requirements, how to overcome common problems and will also be introduced to the tools that measure the benefits of Agile.

Drawing and expanding on concepts in Mike's Succeeding with Agile book, this course will enable participants to confidently and skilfully use Agile and Scrum. 


This advanced course is suitable for anyone who has previously attended an introductory Agile or Scrum training course, such as a Certified Scrum Master or Certified Scrum Product Owner class.

This course is also appropriate to those experienced agilists who are looking for answers to the hundreds of questions that arise during any Agile adoption.

Attendees should have a solid understanding of agile concepts, and principles and practices of Scrum prior to tackling this course. Scrum is defined completely in the Scrum Guide by Ken Schwaber and Jeff Sutherland, the originators of Scrum. We recommend you read the Scrum Guide prior to attending this course.
