Agile Ottawa does a few interesting workshops asides from their monthly Meetup and conference. This year we are happy to announce 2 great workshops on Nov. 22nd.
Collaborative Decision Making
This creative collaboration workshop provides tools that address such issues team alignment, task prioritization, and complex team processes.
Even high functioning teams occasionally have a hard time making decisions or coming up with creative ideas. There are times when the conversation seems to drag on long after a decision is reached. There are times when too many people are involved in the discussion or the wrong people involved. There are times when a team is not sure who’s the actual decision maker. And there are those times when team members just seem to be out of synch with each other.
The collaboration tools workshop and coaching from CTO2 helped us figure out how to work better together as a team and allowed us to solve in a matter of hours some issues we’d been struggling with for weeks,” says Logan LaHive, Belly Founder & CEO.
This workshop is designed to be truly experiential. Rather than discussing topics, teams are quickly introduced to a concept and then spend time working together using the techniques they’ve learned. As the workshop progresses, teams have an opportunity to utilize the tools they learned earlier in the workshop and see how these techniques can be used together in various ways. At the end of the workshop, teams will have addressed a number of different challenges that are common to all of our work lives.
Scaling Scrum Using the Nexus Framework
This workshop introduces Professional Scrum and how to scale a software development effort with three to nine Scrum teams. Through a set of exercises, you’ll get an insight into what working with a Nexus would look like. At the end of the workshop, you’ll be comfortable talking about the Nexus framework in your company and see how #ScaledScrumIsStillScrum.
There is some preparation needed for this course.
Both workshops need registration as space is very limited.
