Agile Co-Creator Alistair Cockburn will lead us on an exploratory intensive 3 day interactive workshop where you will be pushed, stretched, learn and grow, all in the name of discovering the Heart of Agile.

About this Course

This is your chance to learn with a bona-fide industry guru and agile co-creator for a not to be missed experience. The certified “Heart of Agile” workshop has been designed for agilists who want to test and challenge their existing agile skills and mindset across 3 days in a fun, intensive and highly interactive environment.

Alistair Cockburn is known as someone who continually confronts the industry and status quo, he will challenge your pre-conceived notions and ideas. You will learn what agile really is, how to take it beyond what you already know and how to apply advanced skills and techniques to any organisational context and culture. Together we will strip back the layers and return "to the heart of agile".

- Bring your real world problems which are challenging you, the more gnarly the better

- Bring along your objections as to why agile can’t work in whatever context

- Bring your latest ideas

We will work through these together, using the skills taught in the class to give you experience of solving your real problems with the techniques used in the workshop.

What you will learn:

-How to reduce risk, and maximise your results

- How to plan and track large complex projects

- What does it mean to be agile, both within software development and outside of it

- What are the weaknesses within agile development and how to manage them

- What are your strengths and your weaknesses within agile and how to overcome them

- plus much more

At the end of the course, you will walk away with a rich, robust set of tools for approaching your project and organisational situations.

Who Should Attend:

This is not a course for the beginner or the faint of heart. Expect to do homework, expect to be put through your paces, expect to dialogue and argue, have your beliefs challenged by the co-creator of agile and live to tell the tale.
