Agile + Scrum + YOUR BUSINESS
Central Sheffield Location

There’s a reason all the largest, most successful businesses in the country are ‘Agile’… but what about you and your business?
Thousands of UK businesses have already implemented Agile methodologies – in fact there are now more businesses who are ‘Agile’ than ‘Waterfall’. At the same time, there are thousands of businesses who have let to take the leap, due to a number of very valid concerns.
Even for the businesses who already work agile, there are still so many real world concerns to be addressed – like how to take the limited number of ‘roles’ within Agile and make them work with the dozens of different jobs and titles within their organisation.
Over the last few years, LightStart have delivered training and interactive workshops to organisations like First Direct, Leeds Building Society and CNG – on these and other topics. We understand how to clearly explain the concepts, and work with you to understand what you need to implement agile within your organisation.
Our training is delivered by people who have experienced how successful Agile can be. It’s as powerful for businesses who aren’t sure whether to consider Agile and what it involves, as they are for those who have already implemented it.
Where do we start?
If you’ve never worked in an Agile business before, the multiple of different names and terms can seem overfacing – sprints, scrum, scrum masters, product owners, SAFe, velocity, burn down charts.
We unpack each of the different concepts in an interactive, logical and easy to digest way:
1. What is Agile?
We start with Agile, the ‘concept’ – it’s values and principles, strengths and weaknesses.
2. What is Scrum?
We then move onto Scrum, which is the most popular ‘framework’ for working Agile. We break down all the components of Scrum – it’s roles, ‘artefacts’ and ‘ceremonies’.
3. What else can it do?
We cover useful optional add-ons that bigger organisations tend to implement to help work Agile, such as velocity, ‘planning poker’, burn down charts, ‘definition of done’, ‘spikes’, ‘tracer bullets’…
4. How do I begin integrating Agile into my entire business?
Once you understand the concepts and how it works, we interactively capture the many real world roles and job titles within your organisation, and openly discuss how these could map onto Agile roles, or work seamlessly alongside them. We talk about ways to transition from where you are now into Agile, common mistakes and pitfalls – and how to avoid them.
5. Expert Q&A
Following the main topics, our training facilitators are available to answer questions on any topic you would like to explore in more detail
This training session is delivered within a city centre location, and takes 3-4 hours including the Q&A. It begins with a free breakfast, and tea and coffee are available throughout.
A set of useful training notes covering the topics discussed – plus further suggested reading – will be provided after the training event is completed.
