The Heart of Agile, created by Dr. Alistair Cockburn, one of the authors of the Agile Manifesto, is a simplified approach to achieve effectiveness in your daily work and life whatever initiative you are part of. With just four words at the heart of agility and teamwork to describe it: Collaborate, Deliver, Reflect, Improve. This interactive one-day workshop is an introduction to that concept taught by the trainer and leading practitioner Soledad Pinter. It sets the standard for entry-level learning and re-establishes the subtle aspects of agile for beginner and intermediate practitioners. This workshop is constantly incorporating insights from different curricula and different schools. As such, it is suitable for people working in Scrum-based organizations, as well as those using a free-form style of Agile. During the day we will explore the four words in the Heart of Agile: Collaborate, Deliver, Reflect, Improve. You will be introduced to general concepts of collaboration, and practices. We will explore how to improve them using a special set of “collaboration cards”. You will learn how to structure your feedback loop on your delivery; and why and how to split larger projects or initiatives into small pieces, to increase revenue, reduce risk and allow for changing business models. You will learn the basics of “solutions-focused coaching” with future-focused conversations that you can use in your team discussions.
