I recently attended an Agile Fundamentals course led by Mark and found it really enjoyable. Mark was engaging and the content was pitched at the right level for the audience.… I enjoyed the interaction and learning something new. Looking forward to more courses in the future.

I enjoyed the interactive elements and sharing ideas with other people on the course.
The Agile Fundamentals course gave a good overview and the group task was enjoyable.
Great Agile course
I learnt a lot about ways I can change my working practices, especially around regular but concise updates and realistic estimates.
As we find ourselves amid a digital revolution in which the business world has had to adapt to a new fast-paced landscape, the ability to be agile is essential. Customers want to be more involved, more vocal and expect improvements and new features more regularly. The individuals and organisations who are adaptable and able to respond effectively, are favoured by customers and prospects.
The Agile Fundamentals training equips learners with both an understanding of the key values and principles of the Agile approach and the benefits of working with an agile mindset. By gaining knowledge of the key approaches, practices, and terminology utilised across the business environment, learners will be able to deliver a strategic vision to optimise a team’s performance.
Who should attend this course?
Agile methodology is used across many sectors and is ideal within organisations which experience change or fast growth. The course is relevant for anyone interested in understanding the agile mindset. If you want to become an Agile Coach or Agile leader, work within an Agile project management team or Agile product team, or simply want to improve your career prospects, then this course is for you.
What principles we will learn:
The agile mindset is simple to learn but difficult to master. The core values of the Agile Manifesto include people over process, working products over documentation, customer over the contract, and change over the plan. We will cover the 12 key principles associated with those values, plus how they relate to your organisational context and culture. You will also have an overview of all Agile frameworks, including the differences between them and common practices they share.
Having completed our Agile Fundamentals training, you will gain an understanding of Agile and be able to adopt an agile mindset which brings many benefits to both individuals and businesses. Fundamentally, these can be distilled down to four headlines:
- Creation of better products by focusing on value to both the customer and the producer.
- More transparency through vision and practices to drive your development team.
- A true understanding of accountability and the ability to ensure the right people are involved in your decision making.
- Greater ability to learn quickly and successfully adapt.
The course is suitable for anyone considering moving to an Agile framework or working within (or with) an Agile team. No prior knowledge of Agile is required for our Fundamentals course.
The course sessions will take the form of a workshop, working as a whole group or breaking into small groups to explore the content through various interactive exercises. Your trainer will lead a retrospective at the end of each session to help you put what you have learned into concrete actions and practical use. There is no exam necessary for this course but upon completion, you will receive a certificate and digital badge from Cert Unlimited.
