Who is this training for?

This program is specifically designed for teams that are beginning to work with or are interested in agile methodologies. It is geared towards non-technical departments:

 

  • HR
  • Back-office departments supporting IT
  • Finance
  • Marketing
  • Sales

 

Due to the fact that IT has its own specificity, solutions addressed to them do not always work in other departments. We created a solution that allows you to implement an agile approach taking into account the key differences.

We deliver Agile training in two versions:

  • A 1-day training focused on an introduction to agile, learning workflow techniques, a common sense approach to project management according to the 12 Questions of KISS PM™
  • 2-day training (also in 1 + 1 formula, because sometimes it will be difficult to switch off the whole back-office for 2 days in a row)


Usually one day is an introduction to the topic and the second day is used as a workshop to put the selected topics into practice. We work with the challenges raised by the participants before the training and during the first day. After the first day, we can fine tune the list of problems to be solved

Who else can benefit from our training?

    • The company is working with an Agile approach or intends to implement it soon
    • The IT department uses agile methodologies (often modified) and your department wants to learn how to collaborate with IT
    • You want to improve your workflow and project management skills
    • There are challenges with project management – taking on multiple tasks, failing to close initiatives that have been started

Purpose of the training

Training department employees in such a way that:
  • The program was tailored to the specifics of the participants (we do not focus on SCRUM and SCRUM roles, because participants do not work like that on a daily basis)
  • The program was 70% focused on tools and less on philosophy 30%
  • Participants understood what the agile approach is about (basics, without presenting the philosophy in depth)
  • They learned techniques of project work that they can use in their specific work
  • They learned to approach tasks in a project-based manner
  • Improve communication of support departments with technical departments (finding each other in projects, using similar vocabulary)
So that, in effect:
  • Improve the organization of work in non-technical teams
  • Increase the individual effectiveness of trainees
