Agile Ask Me Anything

Get answers to agile questions on any topic that you choose. The one-day Agile Ask Me Anything (Agile AMA) course is the ultimate in flexibility. With 20+ years of IT experience and 10+ years of agile know-how, our principal consultants can answer any agile-related question and help you tackle your specific challenges.

Agile AMA works through the toughest problems and advanced issues that other agile training courses don't address.

Designed as a group training, the course also improves collaboration by showing agile teams how to respond to each other’s needs and fix mutual problems. By the end of the day you, you’ll have solid answers to your most pressing questions, and know exactly how to move forward.

Prerequisites:

  • Due to its flexible nature, this training is preceded by an intake with the training consultant. This ensures knowledge of the context, so examples and discussions can be customized to your organization, to identify subjects that may need preparation or materials, and to set up a default program for the day

Despite the preparation there is still room to change, add or remove items to the agenda on the day itself.
