To be able to adopt change, people need to understand the WHY as well as the HOW. Elabor8's 1 day Agile Fundamentals intensive 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 is the a lighter version of our ICAgile certified 2 day Agile Fundamentals course, however being a 1 day course does not include cer5fica5on. 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.
This is an immersive, hands-on course delivered by trainers who have years of experience across business, operations and IT. Participants apply theory to ac5vi5es 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.
