Pricing / Details
Are you truly agile? Are your agile teams able to adapt to changing business needs? Are they consistently producing low-defect software that your customers are happy with? Are they able to continually add new features at a fairly consistent pace? Are they truly enjoying their jobs or are they getting burnt out?
If you can't answer yes to each of these questions, you may need to dig deep to find out why. Agile is easy to learn, but there are many serious pitfalls that teams commonly step into without even knowing there's a problem until it's too late.
"Agile, in a Flash, with Class" is based on Jeff Langr and Tim Ottinger's deck of agile reference cards Agile in a Flash. The class combines the four different card deck areas: agile concepts, planning, teamwork, and development into a two-day course, setting aside a half-day for each area.
Agile in a Flash with Class is designed for everyone involved with agile software development, including but not limited to managers, ScrumMasters, coaches, programmers, testers, business analysts, and project managers.
During each half-day session, students learn how to take agile to the next level. The focus is on moving behind strict application of the practices (the "shu" phase) and into mastery levels, by learning about more advanced concepts, techniques, and nuances of agile. Students will learn through a combination of memorable hands-on group exercises, discussion, and lecture.
Every student will receive a deck of Agile in a Flash cards.
Agile in a Flash with Class is designed to keep all students interested and engaged. All students attend three of the four sessions--agile concepts, planning, and teamwork. The fourth session on development is optional for non-technical attendees. We can also present it in a less technical manner, to allow non-technical students to understand agile technical practices and how they impact an agile software development project.
This unique course design allows flexibility in scheduling--you are free to configure the four sessions in any order that best suits your needs.
Pricing for this two-day course, which can accommodate up to 24 students, is slightly different than other offerings:
Up to 12 students: $8400
Each additional student: $450
