Agile in a Day One-Day Online Workshop

Agile project management is a new, flexible way of managing projects. Agile allows projects to adjust to changing requirements and timescales, and quickly respond and adjust a project based on customer feedback.

In this one-day workshop, you will learn the principles of Agile, its benefits, and you will develop a project plan to use in your workplace that you can put into action straight away.

This workshop is currently available online as Face-to-Face Live Online Learning using Zoom for public bookings. We are able to offer classroom sessions for private bookings only — please get in touch for availability.

Course Overview

What you will learn

Agile Project Management is perfect for projects with constantly changing requirements, for example software or website development. When developing a new product, the development team may spend months or even years to create the final product – only to find that the customer’s needs have changed. Agile allows for and embraces change throughout the project, breaking down the project into small and manageable two to four week cycles. This allows for much more flexibility and the ability to adapt and change to the new requirements. It is beneficial for the customer, giving them much more involvement in the final product, for your organisation, as it allows for more accurate timescales and expected project costs – as well as for the team, who have much more responsibility and flexibility over their workload.

With Agile, responsibility for a project is spread between the Project Owner, the ScrumMaster, and the Team Members. The Product Owner handles setting project goals, adapting the project requirements and setting priorities for new product features. The ScrumMaster manages the team, helping to prioritise the team’s tasks and carry them out efficiently. This allows the team members to directly manage their day-to-day work, with more time to focus on progress reporting and quality control.

In this one-day course, you will:

  • Learn the benefits of using Agile
  • Learn when it is best to use Agile
  • The history and context of Agile project management
  • Develop your own personal project plan to take away, so you can start implementing Agile in your workplace as soon as you’re back in the office

The Small Print

For Face-to-Face Live Online Learning

All learners will need to install Zoom on their machines. Full technical requirements are on the Zoom website. Your link will be included in your joining instructions once you have booked your place — if you haven't received this email then please contact our team.

Your day will consist of several Zoom sessions, held live with your facilitator and other learners. Each one is roughly 2 hours long, with breaks between. You should reserve out the whole day (10am to 4.30pm) in your diary for the learning. This will allow you to join the interactive online workshops and have time to reflect in between. We believe immersing yourself in the content for a whole day will create deep learning and lasting impact. 

Learners should log into the training session 10 minutes before the start time to ensure that they have downloaded and set up Zoom correctly. The course will start precisely on time and it may not be possible to go back over material missed by late arrivals.

Your active participation is expected: everyone will be heard and seen throughout, just as they would be if we were in a room together. To be heard, hear and seen you will need a microphone, speakers and camera — if you have a modern laptop that’s all you will need. Remember, you’ll need a quiet place to call from and a decent internet connection is a must.

Please ensure you read our Terms and Conditions before booking for our payment terms and cancellation policy.

For classroom sessions

The course runs 9:30am to 5:15pm (lunch is served 1pm to 1:45pm — we offer a choice of 3 cold bowl dishes). Please be careful to arrive by 9:15am for registration and refreshments. The course will start precisely on time and it may not be possible to go back over material missed by late arrivals. If you arrive over 20 minutes late you may be asked to leave and attend another day.

Please ensure you read our Terms and Conditions before booking for our payment terms and cancellation policy.
