Managing Agile teams

Learn the skills to manage and plan for Agile teams

Course Description

A career in software needs more than coding skills.  The ability to lead modern development teams means having an in-depth understanding of software development approaches.  A key skill set is knowing how to plan and manage work in Agile teams.

Jay has 20+ years of experience in leading teams from small companies to multinationals.  These have ranged from classical program management to cross-functional agile development.  Through all of these roles there has been a consistent need to manage work with effective planning.

In this course, Jay demystifies Agile planning, covering key techniques such as:

  • Estimation Poker for collaborative estimation

  • Organise Iteration (Sprint) planning

  • Controlling technical debt

  • Tracking tools

  • Story points as an estimation tool

Jay covers not only the techniques but the mindset.  For Agile to be successful, you need to know not only what processes to follow, but why and how those processes are used.  Not just "doing Agile" but "being Agile".  The concepts are explained clearly  using a range of powerful analogies from Usain Bolt's running style to medieval fire building.

This course is intended for anyone working in an Agile team, especially those building plans and managing work.  This may include Product Owners, Business Analysts or Project Managers depending on organisation.  But because Agile is very team-centric, every team member needs to understand how to get involved in building and communicating
