About the course

Agile is not what you do, Agile is what you become!

As you begin your Agile journey, one of your first challenges will be understanding the rules and roles that support Agile delivery. This two-day Agile training course combines power-point presentations and informal discussions to introduce you to Agile Scrum as a Delivery Method without the impending pressure of having to pass a certification examination.

Designed by Agile coaches with specialist experience of working on GDS (Government Digital Service) Service Standards compliant government and public sector projects. Previous experience of Agile delivery is not a pre-requisite to attending this course, although it is assumed delegates have some understanding of Agile terms.

Recently certified by the CPD Certification Service, we have decided to trial and offer our Agile Scrum as a Delivery Method – Essentials course outside its usual government digital delivery setting.

This course, worth £1,350.00 is 100% free to the first 60 delegates to register their interest.
