    Day 1 - Introduction and Overview
    The first day will be a fun, interactive introduction to Agile terminology, concepts, and principles. The participants will be split into teams in which they will complete the remainder of the class. The objective for day 1 is to keep it simple and easy for the participants to learn pragmatic Agile approaches and techniques. The participates will be introduced to an Agile task management tool (VersionOne) which will help facilitate their learning through the remainder of the course.

    Day 2 - Hands On
    The objective this day is to immerse the team into a series of scenarios which will lead them to that “aha” moment of Agile enlightenment. The teams face a series of real-world situations, which will prepare them for the challenges they may encounter when they take their Agile knowledge back to their own team.


    Day 3 - Team competition
    The final day is filled with a friendly competition where the teams get a chance to develop a real product! Criteria, epic stories, roles and easy-to-use “non-techie” tools are provided. The teams will use their new Agile knowledge-base to prioritize, work together and deliver. Teams will have multiple iterations to complete the project with the guidance of their Agile Coach (Trainer) in this fun filled day. Projects are judged at the end of the day on how well the teams implemented the techniques learn, creativity and deliverables completed. Prizes are awarded!
