An interactive online workshop where you can practice your problem-solving skills and learn how to deal with agile impediments. Join me on May 18, 2021, for the live online workshop Problem Solving with Agile Thinking and Practices.

A one-day workshop for €450. Early bird until May 9: €350.

Problem Solving with Agile Thinking and Practices

Teams will face problems in their daily work. Agile calls these problems impediments. Impediments can be something in the way of working, be it processes, tools, or organizational rules or structures. They slow down teams or block the delivery of products or services.

Teams need to be able to deal with impediments as they have an impact on the flow of work, they are problems that reduce outputs and results.

Agile brings problems to the surface and provides solutions for addressing them. In the workshop Problems Solving with Agile Thinking and Practices, you will learn how to recognize, analyze, and solve problems effectively and faster using agile thinking and practices.

Learning by Doing

You will practice:

  • Recognizing signals of problems, and creating safety in teams for people to bring up problems
  • Analyzing problems picking one technique: causal analysis, blameless post-mortems, retrospectives, swarming, or blocker analysis
  • Managing impediments using techniques from Lean & Kanban; decide how to solve them and who should be involved
  • Using coaching and games to improve collaboration and develop problem-solving skills

Audience

This workshop is intended for:

  • Agile Teams.
  • Technical (team) leaders and Scrum masters
  • Product Owners and Project/Line Managers
  • Stakeholders working with agile teams
  • Agile and Lean Coaches
  • Anybody who is supporting teams in agile transformations

In this workshop, we will explore how to handle impediments effectively and faster and practice our problem-solving skills.

Key-Learnings

  • Become able to create a blameless culture where signals are spotted more easily and problems are brought up sooner
  • Develop your skills for analyzing problems to get a deep understanding
  • Explore ways to take action and follow up to remove problems or mitigate the impact
  • Learn how to collaboratively deal with impediments in your team and organization
  • Explore ways to prevent problems from happening again in the future

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!
