Event description
What being Agile is all about from a mindset, cultural and practical perspective, with the practical methodology worked through as Scrum.

About this Event

All sessions are being offered virtually until further notice. A calendar invite will be sent out approximately 1 week in advance with the online meeting links. Due to the online setup of this offering, Scrum will not be covered in detail since we cannot use Lego. We will offer make-up sessions once we offer them in-person.

Contact ExchangeLab@gov.bc.ca with any questions.

Agile Fundamentals aims to introduce agile concepts and techniques in a classroom situation using a combination of presentations, exercises and fun activities embracing the principle of ‘learning by doing’.

Whether you're a recently minted Scrum Master, Product Owner or have little to no experience of this thing called "Agile", or even if you'd like a refresher on what being Agile is all about from a mindset, cultural and practical perspective, this course will be of value to you.

This session is organized for BC Government employees who are looking to introduce Agile methodology to their own area of work (not specifically digital or service projects), but is the same material aimed primarily at new teams entering the Exchange Lab.
