Agile: The Basics

You are here

 

Get your teams to the Agile starting line as quickly as possible.

Cutter’s motto, “Access to the Experts,” means that when you give teams basic Agile training, you are getting it from the people who have crafted these disciplines. Cutter offers training for teams who are new to Agile, as well as those who want to sharpen their Agile edge. For some clients, we have trained a single team. For other clients, we have trained several teams, spread around the globe.

Whatever the number of teams, the level of Agile experience, or the type of project or product, our approach is the same: Get teams to the Agile starting line as quickly as possible. We include many hands-on exercises during the training, and we start immediately defining, estimating, and prioritizing the backlog. We move quickly into release and sprint planning, so that when the workshop is finished, your teams are as ready as possible to start.

Naturally, we offer follow-on coaching as well. In most cases, this workshop rolls immediately into whatever additional backlog creation and planning the team needs to get working as soon as possible.

Often, we tailor the content of the workshop to fit the type of organization or team. For example, we have, based on early conversations with different clients, emphasized Agile techniques for customer insights, coding practices, and the inclusion of UX design in the training we delivered for them.
