Introducing the New Lean and Agile Curriculum
In response to the trends we’re seeing with Agile adoption as well as what we are hearing from our clients, Strategy Execution is refreshing its entire Agile curriculum to educate and provide support to clients, whether they are moving towards an Agile/Lean or hybrid project management environment, or whether they are seeking to improve their current performance. In addition to education, we are offering ongoing support programs specific to the individual clients’ needs as they transition to Agile, including but not limited to: set-up support, coaching, and on-going guidance.
Fundamentals of Lean and Agile (1 day)

Curriculum includes overviews on Lean and Agile philosophy, myths and how they work together, overviews on both iterative and continuous delivery methods, overviews on Scrum and Kanban, and overviews on how Lean and Agile work is generated, valued, sized and represented; all of which contribute to clear understanding of the Lean and Agile universe in preparation for more advanced concepts and techniques.
