Course Summary

Agile for Teams is a hands-on training workshop designed for teams. Participants include the entire agile team including all team members as well as Product Owners and Scrum Masters.

The benefits of the whole team learning approach are that it helps provide a common language and common practices, everyone hears the same thing, and the team can share their specific challenges and opportunities.

There is also a significant team-building benefit of this training approach which accelerates team development. Following the training, participants will be ready to roll up their sleeves and hit the ground running with agile ways of working.

Our approach to Agile team building means every member will understand his or her role and avoid wasting time on unnecessary tasks. The team also gains insights into how to collaborate as they work together on a common goal.

You’ll learn the behavioral strengths and weaknesses of your teammates, as well. If you need to train managers or PM leaders to improve efficiency from the top down, follow the link to learn about our Agile training for leaders.
