Agile Kick-start Training Programme

Agile product development, which anticipates change and allows for more flexibility than traditional development methods, is now well-established and no longer regarded as a fad.

It can be applied to Software Development, Data Science projects, Network Infrastructure or even your next marketing campaign. Getting started with Agile can present challenges, however, so we've developed and successfully field-tested our Agile Kickstart programme. It's been designed to help you to overcome teething problems and ensure your organisation's first go with Agile is as successful as possible. The focus is on:

  • Improving organisational communication
  • Promoting innovation
  • Maintaining customer focus
  • Maximising business value
  • Minimise business risk

To deliver this, our tried-and-tested Agile Kickstart programme takes a modular approach. Once you pull everything together, you'll ensure your organisation is ready for its first Scrum project and ready to support the first Sprint Cycle.

You can pick and choose modules, but for our most popular programme we typically start with an Introduction to Agile session. It’s been developed to prepare the wider organisation (Development Team, Managers, HR, Sales) for the impact of an Agile transformation, and to help everyone to understand the key to a successful scheme.

Next up is usually a frank but friendly Q&A session – it’s the perfect opportunity to discuss the issues raised during the introductory session.

Alongside this, usually your Scrum Masters and Product Owners (POs) will respectively get role-specific workshops. This culminates with POs generating and refining a workable Product Backlog.

Typically we then work towards starting the first Sprint session. The aim here is to help the Dev Team and Scrum Master to work on Sprint Planning, on techniques for successful Stand-ups, and Project-Specific Tooling.

We return at the end of the first part of the course to a session that guides your first Sprint Retrospective. It’s a chance to highlight successes and inspect and adapt to any challenges you've faced (and there almost certainly will be challenges!). It means that your next Sprint will be even more successful.

"The course gave me a good understanding of Angular and associated packages. I would have preferred to spend less time on the initial setup as additional software was needed that was not on my machine."

"I, along with three colleagues, came on the Agile course. The training was fantastic. I have limited Agile knowledge and this helped answer all the questions I had, in an impartial and helpful way. I learned more about Scrum than I have done in the past and heard of different frameworks that I didn’t know existed and much of this was down to the instructor: his approach, style and knowledge. Please pass on my thanks and I cannot recommend Framework highly enough based on this session."

"I engaged with Framework to support a department-wide transition to Agile Development Practices. The Kick-start programme provided training for the larger organisation, hands-on role and tool-specific training and follow-up coaching. The Agile adoption was and continues to be a success. Scrum is now bedded in and we are making full use of JIRA. Framework's expertise and flexibility made this a very positive experience throughout."
