AGILE TEAM LIFT-UP

SUMMARY

In this three-day course your teams will learn more advanced performance driving aspects of Agile. The course is focused on the team as a whole, and is extremely practical and covers several additional agile practices outside of Scrum that will help your team perform at a higher level than other teams.

The course is based on more than 20 years of experience training thousands of team members and is an advanced version of our two highest rated and longest running courses on teamwork.

If you’re serious about both organizational and business impact on the team level, this is the course for your team. This course is for ambitious leaders and their teams.

The course is based on hundreds of man-years worth of experience and rests firmly on internationally established agile frameworks, such as Lean, Scrum, XP, DSDM Atern and other internationally proven practices.

Unlike most other courses we follow a clear chronological path throughout the course, making it much easier to understand exactly when and how each practice should be used.
