Do you still remember your first day at work? Yes, the very first one, when you were about to make your own money, at last. Do you remember the excitement and a bit of fear in your belly?
For most of us the feeling eventually wore off, and the job became routine. But we have an aspiration to ignite that feeling of excitement afresh. Here, at Think Agile, we help people fall in love with their careers once again.

We recommend starting the conversation with a two-day leadership workshop on Agile.
The workshop is split into two parts:
Day One. Overview of Agile and Scrum framework led by an Agile consultant. The section covers topics of Agile, Scrum events, Scrum roles, Scrum artefacts, Kanban, and SAFe (Scaled Agile Framework).
Day Two. Group discussion on how your organisation can introduce a particular framework to their teams and projects. The discussion is facilitated by an Agile consultant. The attendees create an action plan at the end of the workshop.
We recommend starting your Agile implementation with pilot projects. Perhaps, three to five in total. Each project should have a product owner, scrum master, and cross-functional (developers, testers, analysts, etc.) fully dedicated team. Each team is paired with an experienced coach for a short period. The suggested approach has three parts:
Scrum Master Academy
The Scrum Master Academy is an educational program that is designed to address the shortage of Agile skills in your organization. Agile requires skilled facilitators for your teams, and while you can hire them, you might think of using your existing talent.
The program is four months long, and through theory and practice, your development managers, project managers, developers, business analysts will learn the new skill necessary for your company to be Agile.
Product Owner Academy
The Product Owner Academy is an educational program that is designed to address the gap in skills of Product Owners appointed to work with Agile teams. Traditionally, organisations place more focus on educating Agile teams and Scrum Masters with less time spent on working with Product Owners. Often, Product Owner’s Scrum education is limited to a two-day generic Scrum course, or even worse, a quick 15-minute video online. To add to that, if we pair a Product Owner with an inexperienced Agile team and Scrum Master with an unclear definition of roles, we create a recipe for disaster.
The program is four months long too. It helps strengthen your product team.
