Learn How To Drive Effective, Efficient Agile Meetings

In this course we will give you all the tools you need to cut out the mess and lead effective and efficient agile meetings.

Many new agile teams think flexibility in their meetings allows them to do whatever feels right. In reality, agile projects move more smoothly by running short, well-structured activities. Each activity is time boxed, so the teams stay on track and work within a set time and agenda.

In this course, agile expert Luke Angel outlines how to make agile meetings as productive as possible. He provides guidance on common activities such as release planning, daily stand-ups, sprint planning, and product demos. Throughout the course, learn about common meeting pitfalls and the challenges of keeping activities on track.

An Agile project has less upfront planning. When you start an Agile project, you don't know what the completed product will look like. You start with a general notion of where you're going and you make frequent improvements on how to get there. Agile is adaptive, not predictive. Much of the energy comes from new ideas and changes. This course if part of Lynda's Agile at Work series,Driving Productive Agile Meetings. In this course we'll take a deeper dive into some of the Agile ceremonies. We'll go further into the planning meetings and talk about how to run a disciplined agenda.
