To an organization that is looking to improve the business outcomes driven by their software team(s) the idea of a formula (methodology) to improve value delivery is a compelling one. A formula that comes complete with certifications is even more compelling. It is no wonder that the software development industry has moved towards Agile in a big way.
But here’s the problem. No single formula exists for improving business outcomes across all industries. Or for all companies within a specific industry. Or even for all the teams within the same company.
The goal of our training offerings is to give your team the tools to be able to adjust your process over time and select the best practices that work for your team. We want you to understand the practices of multiple Agile methodologies – Scrum, Lean / Kanban, XP, etc and incorporate the right ones for your team to produce the best results.
Iterative Innovation is an approved Heart of Agile partner company.
This course is designed for anyone who is new to Agile or has had previous methodology-specific training. In this course we will teach you the fundamentals of the most popular Agile methodologies (Scrum, Lean/Kanban) and give you hands-on experience with individual practices so that you know if they are producing the result your team is expecting.Upcoming Classes >>
Building on the pioneering work of Dr. Alistair Cockburn this course is targeted at individuals and teams that have had real-world experience with specific Agile methodologies and are ready to learn how to apply agile principles (incremental delivery of value) to their development process itself. Graduates of this class will understand the principles behind a wide range of Agile practices and have the skills necessary to adapt their team’s process over time with the optimal combination of practices for their unique work environment.Upcoming Classes >>
Optimizing Product Delivery
Over the past 16 years we have learned two interesting things:
- 2/3 of delivered features have zero or negative value
- Agile (as commonly practiced) has turned teams into order takers rather than innovative problem solvers
This class incorporates key principles from Lean Startup (build – measure – learn) and Jeff Patton’s work in Product Discovery to quickly explore different ideas of what represents value to your customers and your organization and to move the best ideas into working software as quickly as possible.
