HomeAgile & Scrum Training (Static) - Ariel Partners

Team-Level Scrum

1 Day

This training course provides a comprehensive understanding of the Scrum agile process.  In particular, it will explain what problems Scrum solves, how Scrum teams are organized and managed, and how the work is captured, managed, and tracked.  This course is designed to prepare attendees to pass the Professional Scrum Master I and II certifications.

Scaling Scrum: LeSS, SAFe, Nexus, [email protected]

1 Day

This training course provides a comprehensive understanding of the most popular methods for scaling Scrum across multiple teams, including Large Scale Scrum and the Scaled Agile Framework, among others.   The course will review how these methods evolved, and how they organize and align the work of multiple Scrum teams to deliver much larger programs of work than that which could be done by a single Scrum team acting alone.

Agile Software Architectures

1/2 Day

This training course provides a brief overview of Agile software architecture—focusing on web-based and microservices architectures that are simple and scalable.  We will review some key design patterns such as hexagonal design and design for testability and manageability.  Come learn the ways companies like HBO and Netflix provide for both incredible scalability and simple manageability.

ALM Customization with Version One/TFS/JIRA

1/2 Day

Many teams struggle with their application lifecycle management tool’s out-of-the-box- configuration.    Typically these tools provide overly complex or inappropriate workflows and forms and are not fully integrated into the ecosystem.  On the other hand, some teams suffer from overly customized and disorganized configurations, and metrics that don’t make sense.   What is needed is a middle ground.  Properly general and streamlined configuration can pay for itself many times over in terms of increased productivity and more accurate metrics.  This training course provides a deep dive into the capabilities of VersionOne with many examples demonstrating how it can be integrated with other tools in the Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) ecosystem.  There are VersionOne, TFS, and JIRA alternatives for this training.

Agile for Leaders and Executives Seminar

1 Day

Learn about what leaders and executives can do to support their agile organizations and lead a successful digital transformation. Understand the key role management plays in supporting agile teams. Learn about management 3.0 and “liberating structures:” cutting edge facilitation techniques that can significantly improve buy-in and engagement.

Agile Governance and Oversight at Scale

2 Hours

Given the lack of detailed plans up-front, the reduced emphasis on documentation, and the eschewing of traditional metrics such as earned value, one might assume that governance and oversight is more challenging in the agile space. To the contrary, agile methods offer governance and oversight a wealth of new tools and capabilities, enabling a more proactive and collaborative approach.  Learn specific techniques for governance and oversight of large-scale Agile projects, and how to avoid common failure modes.

Highly interactive and engaging, this training provides an excellent background and preparation for joining an agile team or adopting agile.
