Agile Academy

Created from agile experience

We teach how to be agile. We offer training courses, workshops and help become adapted. Each situation has its solution. We will teach you how to recognize the right one as quick as possible and how to implement it in your environment and your organization.

WHAT’S NEW

The first summer in the Agile academy – we´re going to work on the new section of our web, improve our training courses even more, and also prepare materials and environment so we can bring you a foreign Agile star! More on our LI and FB profiles soon!

Agile in all aspects of an agile company

To be agile means to be flexible and adaptable. To be able to adapt to situations which we encounter in the dynamically developing business. Agile does not only refer to a set of few tricks and practices, but it is a whole philosophy as such. There are two main roles in this „game“– the employee and the customer. We communicate with the customer from the very beginning till the very end.

That is the only way how to adapt to each situation in time and to reach maximum satisfaction on both sides. An agile approach also contributes to a better team communication. It improves communication between individual departments throughout the whole company.

IT

Working agile enables a more frequent release (in smaller volumes) and a better communication with the customer. As a result, there is less development put on the shelf and the end user can see the work result earlier than usual. And, it is IT that per definition says HOW the customers‘ requirements will be fullfilled.

Management

The role of the management is also essential in Agile but its approach differs significantly. Terms such as „Servant Leader“, „Role model“, „Delegating“ or „Trust“ are used more often in the agile world and are much more important than in the standard management.

Human Resources

For the HR world working agile is essential in two respects:

  1. Recruitment and the organization support is changing – the needs of teams and their managers differ; plus, the performance and the development framework is changing as well.
  2. The functioning of HR itself – most principles from the Agile world can be used for the HR. It has been proved a good practice to adapt to the functioning of HR for the sake of the organization.
Business

It is usually the business people who deal with the customer in most cases. It is them who know the customer’s needs and motivations, who know what the cumstomer values the most.

Agile brings many ways how to even better align the customer and the „supplier“. What’s more, it enables the customer to see what is being done both in the early phases and throughout the whole process. In Agile, it is not „us – business“ and „them – IT“. In Agile , it is “WE“.

A selection of our training courses

Agile leadership I

In two days full of real and practical cases and follow-up exercises, we will deal with creating and composing the team, people and project management, frequent mistakes, metrics, the manager’s role, and much more. At the end of this course, you will be familiar with what Agile is, what to pay attention to and what to avoid and, above all, how to be a great agile leader

Agile & Human Resources

Even if there is only one single agile team within an organization, the demands and requirements from the HR alter.  Not even mentioning such situation when the whole organization undergoes an agile transformation. The recruitment methods, employee development methods and the bonus systems are changing. In this course, we will share our experience from various organizations and we will give you plenty of tips.

We can offer you a “custom-made” Agile training

Are you a company or a group interested in Agile? We can offer you a training or a workshop right for you. We are well aware that each company is different – it has a different culture, different vision, different perspective and expectations of Agile, different level of seniority or number of employees. Let us know your primal expectation and/ or your questions, and we will get back to you. Together we can discuss what is the best way to help and assist you. The more we know about you, the more suitable training we can create for you.

We can meet you anytime and anywhere, from Aš to Zlín, from Anchorage to Zagreb. If you need to train individual teams in different parts of the world, let us know and we can arrange it. We are able to give all training courses in English. We can either adjust an existing training, we can combine them, or we can create a suitable training just for you. Thanks to many years of experience from the real world, we are able to create a “specialized” training – for example, an agile portfolio, agile architecture, performance management. We will gladly help you prepare or create a development plan for your Scrum Masters, Product Owners, agile teams and managers.

Do you need to organize an offsite with an agile subject or an agile lecture for your employees or partners? We have a lot of experience in this respect and we will be glad to help you.

We are taking agile seriously 

Why Agile from us?

We interconnect our still increasing experience with theory – all our trainers are primarily Agile coaches or Scrum masters who have decided to pass on their knowledge and experience. Apart from a number of workshops and trainings which they have given, each of them has also attended and finished a pedagogical training adapted for the sake of our training courses so that you can get the most of it.

We keep improving not only ourselves but also our training courses, which we keep improving both in terms of its contents and the processes. And, the training courses are not all that we offer –  we create communities, arrange exchanges / internships between companies, so that (not only) our students can broaden their agile horizons and bring back knowledge and findings from somewhere else, we organize community meetings.

This all for free because we are deeply involved and we believe in Agile, which is, among other things, about sharing.
