Overview

The Heart of Agile is an exciting, informative day-long workshop for all roles and at all the levels, learning from one of the creators of the Agile movement. The one-day workshop involves -

  • Just one, opening lecture, to catch you up on the state of product and software development right now
  • Two fast-moving activities that involve cooperating, developing, drawing, sharing, in short, being agile
  • Finally, a facilitated small-group discussion to work out what to do with all the insights from the day

This workshop helps to set your organization’s expectations for agile adoption, and create a shared experience for everyone to refer back to, and create new small improvements initiatives within the organization.
