Develop Better Products with Agile
Many teams are adopting an agile way of working, for instance with Scrum. Their expectation is that agile will help them to develop products that satisfy their customer’s needs, be more flexible, and deliver faster. Unfortunately, it doesn’t always work that way. Working in teams and collaborating with your customers to get feedback is hard. It’s not about doing Scrum, it’s about effectively using agile practices to deliver value faster.
In the workshop Develop Better Products with Agile you will practice agile and learn how to apply it effectively:
- Practice understanding and prioritizing customer’s needs.
- Work in small teams to develop products iteratively.
- Learn to gather valuable feedback with product reviews and demos.
- See how to improve your way of working with agile retrospectives.
- Find out how to effectively apply agile practices with an agile mindset.
The workshop is loaded with examples and suggestions to help you deliver the right products faster.
If your team(s) are
- finding it difficult to understand your customer’s needs to decide on what to deliver when
- not delivering working software or not able to finish user stories within a reasonable time
- not getting feedback from customers and unsure if you are delivering value to your customers
- having difficulties communicating and working together as a self-organized team
- doing agile/Scrum/Kanban rituals but feeling that they are not always helpful
- having difficulty to reflect and learn and get good actions out of your retrospective
then this is the workshop for you!

Learning by practicing and experiencing
Doing it yourself and reflecting is the way people learn new practices and develop skills in my workshops. They work in teams to try out things and experiment with practices to learn how agile can really look and feel. I coach people, answer questions, share my experience, and provide lots of ideas. They learn from me, and also from each other.
I use many exercises, games, and real-life cases in my workshops. Examples are the retrospectives toolbox, the Impediment Game, and the Agile Self-assessment Game.
My approach enables attendees to apply the things they learned in their daily work.
The workshops are time well spend; organizations get value for their money!
