Intro to Agile Workshop

Rick Mook, Ph.D., A-CSM, PMI-ACP

This hands-on, participatory course provides a broad introduction to agile.  The knowledge, experiences, and skills from this course will empower your employees to embrace change, collaborate across your organization in new ways, and deliver value more quickly.


Welcome and Logistics

Principles and Values

Through a series of activities, participants will learn how the agile principles and values help us adapt to change.

Value Proposition

Drawing on exercises and past experience in projects, participants will work in teams to map how agile approaches affect the visibility, business value, adaptability, and risk of most projects.

Ways of Working

The many agile frameworks used today share some crucial practices that are beneficial beyond agile as well. Here we will explore how agile practices like cross-functional teams, standups, progressive elaboration, “just enough” documentation, and minimum viable bureaucracy can help us become more efficient.


Formal Frameworks and Processes

The four main agile frameworks (Lean, Kanban, Scrum, and XP) offer different advantages and benefits. We’ll dive into each framework using hands-on exercises.

Agile Idea Incubator

The group will collaborate (using agile tools, of course) to identify ways that they and their teams can become more agile.

Resources and Next Steps

The course concludes by surveying the many resources and next steps available to assist on the agile journey.
