Information about the courses
Lean and Agile Project Management using Scrum
Scrum and Agile have been around for years, but organisations are still struggling to realise the potential benefits of using them. Much of this stems from the myriad of tools, frameworks, practices, methodologies and processes in the market that all claim to make your teams more efficient which, in turn, will lead to an Agile organisation.
Neil Killick and Ed Wong team up to provide what could be the most authentic Agile training in Melbourne, perhaps Australia.
The next course is 31 October 2013.
Agile Product Development
Ed Wong and Craig Brown team up to help you initiate agile products and projects.
The course covers the principles underpinning agile development, with activities used throughout the course; you will envision a product, and progress through different approaches to build a shared understanding of that product vision.
The next course is due in November 2013.
Introduction to User Experience
Ben Tollady from Thirst Studios, a Melbourne User Experience agency and Ed Wong will help you to understand what UX is, and how you can apply UX principles to your work.
As well as learning what UX is, you’ll find out ways of incorporating user experience principles and techniques into your projects.
The next course is due in November 2013.
Introduction to Kanban
Ben Hogan covers the theory and practice of the Kanban process.
Kanban is a popular method for managing work, based on Lean and System Thinking concepts. It has a focus on visualising the work, limiting the work to the team capacity and providing improved time to market and better predictability.
Agile Technical Excellence Using Scrum and XP
Using a combination of XP principles, modern, lightweight tools and an Agile mindset, it is now possible to move away from the bad old days of legacy systems that no one wants to touch. We can now automate previously cumbersome and time consuming manual tasks like regression testing. We can all but eliminate bugs from production software by building quality into our products at development time rather than inspecting to check it’s there after it is built.
James Holmes and Neil Killick present a 2-day course that will teach you all the key techniques and principles to achieve Agile Technical Excellence, allowing your company to frequently release incremental value without slowing down or creating technical debt in the process.
The next course is scheduled for 17-18 October 2013
Accelerated Introduction to Agile
Do you need to catch up on the industry?
Ben Hogan’s 1 day intensive workshop will cover the basics of Agile and what it means for you. It covers the Agile Manifesto, the fundamentals of the popular agile methods. We also practice several common techniques to show how they should operate.
Visualizing your work
A core practice of Agile is to visualise your work to make things transparent and to amplify mutual understanding.
Most people stop at visualizing their workflow; To do, doing, done. There is so much more that can be, and should be visualised.
Come along to this one day workshop where we run you through 8 different visualisations that will help you get your work done.
Visual Facilitation (also known as Graphic Facilitation) is very popular right now. Do you want to learn how to make striking notes etc.
Learn techniques to improve your drawing and listening skills so that you can capture conversations visually.
As agile software professionals, we want to produce working, tested software at regular intervals.
Automated testing tools are important and useful for agile development teams to deliver on this promise.
Come to this course and learn about how you can implement automated testing tools on your projects.
