Courses Topics

Seasoned agilists all set to help organizations realize suprior way of implementation and execution.

Course Topic

Origins of Agile

Many people entering the Agile world see the Agile Manifesto as the beginning of the world, where it was really the summing up of much previous work. Anchor the ideas of Agile development in earlier work, giving the learners continuity from the past to the present.

Agile Manifesto

The 2001 Manifesto for Agile Software Development is still the anchor document for all forms of Agile development. Make clear that the Agile Manifesto is a set of values, not a prescription for a particular type of process. Also, learners should be introduced to the fact that the values on the left are preferable to those on the right.

Understanding the Agile Mindset

Many people come to Agile looking for “the Agile process”. However, while some processes and methodologies may be more supportive or common in Agile organizations than others, the mindset must come first. Introduce Agile as a mindset and explain that agility is achieved through both “being” and “doing” Agile. The Agile mindset is characterized by things like valuing early failure for learning, collaboration, continuous improvement, continuous discovery, etc.

Establishing the Agile Mindset

Experiencing the Agile mindset is the best way to establish it in a learner Allow the learner to experience situations in which the Agile mindset is likely to be different from their current way of working, so the learner can internalize the difference experientially, not just in concept.

Incremental Development

One anchor of Agile development is incremental development. Introduce the concept and value of incremental development, and how it differs from effort-based or task-based management.

Value-Based Work

Many people, even understanding the idea of incremental development, can’t see how to break work into small, value-centred work items and track their progress. Develop and practice techniques for breaking problems into value-based parts and tracking progress against them.

Retaining Quality

It is easy to lose sight of the cost of rework in incremental-iterative development. Introduce and highlight why Agile developers need to keep an eye

The Scrum Framework

How is the Scrum theory implemented through time-boxes events, roles, rules and artefacts? How can these be used most effectively? We will experience why the Scrum framework is constructed as it is and how you as Scrum Master can effectively use Scrum to control risks and create maximum value.

Scrum Roles – Product Owner, Scrum Master and Development

Who supposed to be a good product owner? What Product Owner does in Scrum? Do they write story or maximize value? Why we need a Scrum Master? Who decides Scrum Master for the team? What’s the meaning of Self-Organized Development Team? Is Self-organizing team good enough or we need a self- managed team? Developers are cross-function or Development Team is cross-functional?

The Definition of Done & Acceptance Criteria

Are you able to deliver truly done product? What “DONE” means in Scrum and why it is important? Workshop focus differentiating DONE and UNDONE but also bring discussion about Technical Debts. Participants have to learn the meaning of DONE increment by defining definition in the workshop. Why not to have technical debt is critical to growing organization? How Acceptance Criteria is different than Definition of DONE?

Working with organizational challenges

Why change is hard and what can be done to make it real? What organizational changes needed to see the real benefits of Scrum?

Working with Product Vision

From concept/idea that may be vague, product owners are taken through the steps to turn this into a tangible and valuable artefact: a product vision statement. In a group exercise, the product vision statement is developed using proven techniques such as Elevator Pitch, Lean Canvas and Product Box. From the product vision statement, a story map is developed, breaking down the vision into a manageable number of steps or functional areas, depending upon what best suits the product. With this initial outline in place, high-level functional requirements are written, introducing the concept of user stories and epics.

Writing User Stories and Story Mapping

The story map is populated by the group writing user stories to fulfil each of the product features, ensuring the stories remain aligned with the product vision and value drivers. Will have an understanding about how to split complex features into manageable stories.

Release planning in Agile

The planning exercise is repeated a number of times using different criteria such as risk, value, complexity, size and marketability.

Non-functional requirements

Identifying and responding to non-functional requirements to ensure they don’t get lost in the process of defining product success and lead to hidden risks.

Using Agile metrics

Using key metrics and visualizing them with cumulative flow diagrams to help see where work is and how to improve the flow from concept to reality. Helping product owners to focus upon the right metrics and avoid those metrics that drive undesirable behaviours in development teams and by stakeholders.

Working with the development team and stakeholders

Understand the role of the product in relation to the development team, how best to support them and what they need from a product owner to be effective in their role. Working with stakeholders, keeping them informed of progress and risks, influencing their decision making and managing expectations.

Tracking and Measuring Project Success in Agile

How to measure the success of an agile project in the ever-evolving requirement? Discussion around key metrics like business values, velocity chart, release burndown and sprint burndown. How to incorporate feedbacks in the forecast and how to forecast the project completion date.

Essential Elements for Agile Way of Working

Agile way of working has become buzzwords after ING case study and recent adoption at ANZ. Let’s understand the pros and cons of the agile way of working. Will have a discussion around various model for organization agility and way to adopt. Focus will be on owning a roadmap for organization agility vs renting processes.

Certification Assessments

After completion of the workshop, each participant will receive a certificate from ICAgile granted as ICAgile Certified Professional (ICP).

Preeth was absolutely great trainer for PSM. Attended his training, and he had shared many practical scenarios on applying the Scrum framework. Very good listener and explained very well to us that we understand the concept fully rather than just purely running through course materials.

It had been a great experience to attend the PSM-I training given by Preeth. With his vast experience as Agile consultant and coach, he could give us a clearing understanding of the concepts. He is so spot on clearing our doubts with proper examples.His body language and voice modulation is so good to keep us active and energetic through out the session. At the end of the training, he was so successful that the entire team got a clear picture in their mind , the dos and don''ts while we practice scrum.

I attended scrum session on May 4-5, 2019 in Mohali (Punjab) given by Preeth. There were 28 employees from FIS. It was pleasure to meet him. The way of explaining the concepts were simply the best. I am working in scrum since 2012 and had a different version of the importance of roles in my mind so it was never easy to understand the concepts because it was conflicting with what I have been doing/using. Preeth explained the concepts so well that helped me to clear the PSM-1 in 3 days. His communication skills, team forming nature, listening to the audience and answering the questions with his experience and knowledge using live examples impressed not only me but my other colleagues. Before attending this session, I use to have conflict of thinking of the role with my team's scrum master but now I understand the responsibility of the role. You can go through his profile on scrum.org and he is currently the one among 500 in the world who has cleared PSM-3. I would love to attend more sessions when ever I get an opportunity. Thank you Preeth.

The practical experiences shared by Sumit are a good takeaway. He connects with the class more personally resolving all our doubts which is quite helpful. As I was travelling from Chennai to Bangalore I was scared that the class might cancel or postpone as it had happened previously with other trainer but the best part is he never cancels the class.

I attended the PSM training where I met my trainer Sumeet Madan. He is absolutely an amazing trainer. The entire training module was completely discussed along with his full-time engagement. He did explain all the topics with relevant real-time scenarios which actually helps to keep the scrum techniques in mind. Getting the training from someone is usually boredom, but the training class that I attended with Sumeet was completely lively and exuberant. Must say Amazing Trainer ..... Amazing Person......

Recently, I was trained under Sumeet for PSM 1 , he has immense knowledge of Scrum Master roles and all the best practices. The 2 day training was the best training I ever had. It was quite interesting and nobody in his class slept or left the class in between for even a second. The examples he gave with his experience in IT industry were apt with the situations we fell in sometimes. He gave the perfect solution for every problem. Thanks a lot Sumeet. I hope if we can work someday together , it will again be a great learning experience.
