To be able to adopt change, people need to understand the WHY as well as the HOW. Elabor8's Agile Fundamentals course has been designed to provide individuals and teams with the knowledge to transition from traditional plan-driven project methodologies to change-driven methodologies using agile principles, frameworks and tools. This course teaches the mindset, tools and techniques that individuals need to be productive members of a business that's adopting agile ways of working.
If you're looking for lecture based training then this is not the course for you!
This is an immersive, hands-on course delivered by trainers who have years of experience across business, operations and IT. Participants apply theory to activities throughout the course with a constant focus on the customer, collaboration, delivering value, learning and continuous improvement.
We appreciate that moving to agile ways of working can involve unlearning for individuals. We show great empathy throughout the course taking a very pragmatic, non-prescriptive approach to agile adoption where teams can shape what agile ways of working looks like to them and implement immediate change post the course.

I'd already been working in an agile project, but the course provided a lot of theory to explain the practise and fill in the gaps. The course was very well organised and run, with a good mix of practical exercises to complement the topics discussed and presented by people who have worked in an agile environment. Whether you're completely new to agile, or already have some experience working in an agile environment, there will be a lot of things for you to take away from the course.
Recently I undertook the Agile Fundamental two day course led by Elabor8. There were 20 team members on the course, at all levels of understanding of Agile and I can honestly say, the delivery of the course was fresh, interactive and not your standard ‘death by powerpoint’ some of use may have seen with some course delivery. Rebecca delivered in such a way, we were all very much engaged, and such, we were able to understand the content, enabled everyone to interact, and most importantly, it was a fun way to understand the fundamentals of ‘Agile’. I would very much recommend anyone who wishes to explore this subject, to engage with Rebecca and her team at Elabor8.
Elabor8 facilitated a full-day workshop for our whole team, bringing together project managers, designers and developers. Our group was skilfully lead through an exploration of Agile methodology by Cath, who challenged and engaged us all with structured exercises and tasks. Cath was very practical with her recommendations for change within our business; advocating for a gradual roll out of Agile processes. We are already seeing positive changes as a result of the inspiring session.
Elabor8 were great to work with, they listen to your needs and work through training options to match. We ran three waves of the Agile Fundamentals course with three different flavours based on each group. It gave our leaders and squads a perfect benchmark to launch into our new way of working.
The course was an excellent grounding in all aspects of agile, with a good balance between theory and practice across the two days. The group activities gave us the opportunity to both learn and practise the concepts we were introduced to and kept the energy high in the room. Overall it was a really engaging course with plenty of practical frameworks, tools and ways of working to take back to our workplaces.
