Overview

Through an intensive course of classroom training and hands on practical worked examples,  we introduce the systems thinking mindset that is the foundation knowledge for uplifting your teams, culture, org, structure; and unleashing their potential.

Bootcamp immersion is the fastest route to dramatic improvement in your teams. More effective people, more effective teams. We have constructed what we think is the perfect education for anyone seeking to understand and use these approaches in their workplace. 

Who…

Fundamentals Bootcamp is best suited to individuals who are new to Agile, Lean and Systems Thinking approaches to work, 

And

For individuals who have viewed agile teams and participated in perhaps one or two initiatives, and want to gain more in-depth knowledge and experience,

And

Great for new leaders commencing a practitioner career as a leader of agile teams or an eventual coach.

Over an intensive two day course Fundamentals Bootcamp aims to address the Why, What and How of Agile, Lean and Systems thinking.

Why…

We will commence with a brief history of these practices, focussing on the common principles that underpin all agile and lean approaches to team operation and delivery. We understand and explain the drivers behind the emergence of new ways of working and the issues they attempt to address. 

Module Content:

  • History

  • Principles

What…

We introduce basic templated processes to apply to the planning, execution, prioritisation and delivery of a teams work. No one method is practical for all situations so using our years of experience we advise ‘the simplest approach that could possibly work’ for incorporating agility into how teams operate. 

We then augment with a number of common industry alternatives that can be used by the more experienced practitioner, building on the base of principles so people can develop and tailor these approaches to their unique environments and problem domains.

Module Content:

  • Planning processes and Prioritisation 

  • Communication (Standups & Visualising work/Kanban)

  • Demonstrating work (Show case)

  • Continuous improvement practices (Retrospectives)

  • Iterating / Sprinting

  • Program level planning & Scaling

How…

Technique can be the difference between following a process and having the skills to adapt and improve. Higher order topics equip attendees with the ability and confidence to move and apply their learning. 

Module Content: 

  • Building Culture

  • Collaboration

  • Growth versus fixed Mindset

  • Experiments

  • Games

  • Breaking with tradition 

  • Design thinking

Fees:

2 day course plus materials

$1,100 + GST per person
