Putting Agile theory into practice

Who is this course for

This business game is designed for teams who have recently attended one of our other Agile courses and want to spend more time exploring the practicalities of working in an Agile team.

You will learn how to

  • Apply Agile theory

  • Work within an Agile Team

  • Experience working within an Agile Environment


This course assumes that delegates have:

  • Recently sat on one of our more theory intensive courses such as Agile Awareness Seminar, Agile Leadership Brief, Certified ScrumMaster or Certified Scrum Product Owner.

  • Are engaged with one of our coaches.

  • Are currently an Agile framework with discipline.

It is not suitable for those with no prior exposure to Agile.

Benefits for you as an individual

Individuals will practice Agile roles, events and artefacts in an engaging, hands-on way. Importantly, due to the hands-on nature of these sessions, you will be able to explore the behaviours and mindset needed to allow Agile to flourish in your context. By the end of the simulation individuals will have increased confidence to take part in or support Agile teams.

Benefits for your organisation

Combining this with one of our more theory-heavy offering such as Agile Awareness Seminar, Agile Leadership brief or Scrum Master training is an excellent way to explore not only the mechanics that support the Agile mindset, but also the individual and team behaviours that will be needed. The session is also very team orientated and therefor perfect for just-in-time training as it combines concreting theory with an element of team building.

  • Creating and refining backlog
  • Clarifying acceptance criteria
