Establishing Team Agility for Agile Release Trains

Build the skills needed to become a high-performing team member of an Agile Release Train (ART)—and learn how to collaborate effectively with other teams—by becoming a Scale Agile Practitioner.

During this two-day course, you will gain an in-depth understanding of the ART, how it delivers value, and what you can do to effectively perform the role using Scrum, Kanban, and Extreme Programming (XP). You will also learn how to write stories and break down features, plan and execute iterations, and plan Program Increments. Finally, you’ll learn about the continuous delivery pipeline and DevOps culture, how to effectively integrate with other teams in the program, and what it takes to continuously improve the train.

Melissa did a great job with bringing the theory to life with specific examples that are relevant to our business needs. She kept us on track and the energy high - no small feat given a 2 day course and a lot of people with varying skills and levels of understanding in the room.
