Few experiences are more rewarding in our line of work than seeing the teams we’ve coached make exponential gains in productivity and happiness (the two are pretty much inseparable). While individual contributors can gain a great deal from taking a public workshop, there is no better way for a team to get up to speed with Agile practices than to train together as a team.
Many of our long-term clients are companies that have decided to test the waters by adopting Agile at the team or project level, while others have made an enterprise-level commitment. Whatever your needs, we can work with you to design a custom training and coaching package.
What does a custom training package look like?
Of course, the real picture can only emerge after consulting with you to determine your needs and budget. That said, in our experience a typical engagement might include several components, such as:
- a company-wide introductory workshop like Experiencing Agility or Agile 101 to facilitate organization-wide buy in
- a brown bag workshop like The Business Case for Agile for managers and other stakeholders
- a multi-day Bootstrapping Your Scrum Team workshop for Scrum team members
- A day-long Mastering Agile Requirements workshop for your product managers and product owners
- team retrospective facilitation to cement the team’s early learning
And because good training always raises more questions than it answers, our packages always include follow up one-on-one coaching sessions for your key people.
What kind of facilitation services does Agile Learning Labs offer?
We can facilitate just about any scale of meeting, activity or conference. For some companies, especially those that have begun to implement Agile practices on their own, the best way to begin a relationship is to bring us in to facilitate a sprint planning meeting or a team retrospective. At the other end of the spectrum, we facilitated an Open Space Conference for 200 people at the 2008 Orlando Scrum Gathering.
Does Agile Learning Labs offer one-on-one coaching?
Yes we do. We have individual hourly coaching clients, from an individual contributor who has just been promoted to management, to the veteran startup CTO who wants to figure out how to build the right kind of project management infrastructure as his company scales.
How do we get started?
Why not get started with an introductory brown bag session? It’s a great way to get familiar with our training style. Please contact us! We will be happy to discuss your situation and answer any questions you may have.
