Advanced Agile Development with Alistair Cockburn

Registrations are closed

This is the course for you if you have been doing agile development for 3-15 years, have read many of the books and are ready for a deep dive into what agile development is all about.

trainer Alistair Cockburn 

This training is for the  Intermediate practitioners hungry to learn the deep roots of agile, advanced practitioners bored with the usual conversations on agile.

Modern “expert” agile practitioners have mastered the practices – but not why they work, not how to adjust practices to situations, not how to approach new and surprising situations, not how to apply agile practices to non-software projects, not how to incorporate results from other fields back to their own projects, not how to tailor the practices to different organizational cultures. This advanced course from industry guru Dr. Alistair Cockburn addresses those areas.

Bring along bring gnarly problems you have been challenged with and objections as to why agile can’t work in whatever context: We will work through those problems as a class, using the skills taught in the class.

This is not a course for the beginner or the faint of heart. Expect to do homework, expect to be put through your paces, expect to dialog and argue, have your beliefs challenged.

You need not prepare for the course, but you will get more from it if you have read Agile Software Development: The Cooperative Game and “The Seven Properties of Highly Successful Projects” from Crystal Clear: A Human-Powered Methodology for Small Teams prior to the start of class.

At the end of the course, walk away with a rich, robust set of tools for approaching your project and organizational situations.

“AdvancedAgile with @TotherAlistair is like walking in as an agile Jedi then some dude with pointy horns pulls a double ended light sabre.” – Todd.

“Alistair is the Chuck Norris of Use Cases. Applying use cases to the project life cycle has re-instilled my faith in project management.”

“Alistair provided a non-intimidating environment to allow for mind stretching. I feel like I’ve been put through a mental wringer but all in a way that can only improve my value for my team.” –Nicole Hopkins

“Excellent course… well worth the investment of time and money. I especially appreciated Alistair’s depth of knowledge and breadth of experience. I will be watching for other courses offered by him.” –Chuck Stoner
“The deep level of experience Alistair brings to the training adds significant insight to the domain.” –Dave Pugmire
“I want my boss, my boss’s boss and my boss’s boss’s boss to take this course.”
