The world has seen significant change in recent months that will transform the way we interact and work with each other forever. In these turbulent times, limiting face-to-face contact isn’t just common sense; in many cases it is now mandatory.
Agil8 recognise that not everyone has had the opportunity to learn the skills needed to maintain business continuity and value delivery under these constraints, and so this course, led by experienced agile coaches / trainers, Matt Hosking and Tim Robinson, will provide an opportunity to learn the key skills and techniques needed to be successful in properly supporting remote teams through the current challenges they face.
You are already confident with agile ways of working and are comfortable using face-to-face skills to lead and support your team, however translating that into the world of remote working will be more challenging. This workshop will provide you with agile insights, practical skills and tools that will enable you to have the confidence to encourage and empower your teams remotely.
From practical application, to potential pitfalls and anti-patterns, you’ll come away from this course with tools, practices and a new confidence to help your teams to succeed.
This highly interactive course will use collaboration tools from the outset, giving you immediate exposure to great tooling, whilst experienced trainers will share emergent good practices that enable teams to thrive in a remote and virtual world.
