More and more businesses are employing Agile development methods to get products and services to market faster and more efficiently.

  • An introduction to the key concepts and terminology relating to Agile Methods and specifically using Scrum.
  • Hands on practice of the Agile methods with a mock exercise that highlights the key roles and activities in the process.
  • Demonstrates how the Product Management activities and outputs interface with the UX and the Development teams.

The course will use existing, real world work examples. Please bring examples that will be used in an interactive and practical format to get participants practicing the concepts discussed.

“At Intrepid Travel we are in the initial stages of transition to an Agile framework.  Our development teams adopted to the change early and easily but we soon discovered that our main Agile gap was with our Product Managers. Our first reaction was to train our Product Managers to be Scrum Masters but this did not suit their needs or their interest as it was too focused on development processes.

So we changed focus and contacted Brainmates to run their 1 day “Practical Agile for Product Managers” course, with 20 participants from across the business.

After this course the ‘penny dropped’ and this mobilised our Product Managers and business leaders to think differently and participate with our Scrum Teams in a more effective way. Our Product Managers are now more heavily involved with our teams, writing user stories, taking ownership of their ‘products’. Doing this course has catapulted us further ahead in our transition and we are already starting to see results.” – Cassandra Wallace, Organisational Change Management, Intrepid Travel
