Description

The Disciplined Agile Fundamentals course is an opportunity for all team members to gain a common understanding of Agile and Disciplined Agile.
You will learn about Agile and how Agile ceremonies work, what purpose the Agile work board serves, what user stories are and how to estimate them using story points, and what the Agile team roles are.

From the basic Agile practices, we continue to explore a Lean and continuous way of working using Disciplined Agile Methods. We will look at Ways of Working (WoW) and how teams can embrace WoW. This workshop is not technical and is recommended for all team members new to Agile.

Who should attend

This is a course that is beneficial for those who are new or have just entered the world of Agile and Disciplined Agile Methods. It may be of particular benefit to those who have multiple years of management experience and are looking to embrace a method of agile continuous delivery. This is a course that can be customised to reflect the experiences and levels of participants.
