Hands-on agile training is the surest way for teams to gain the theoretical and practical knowledge to implement the methodology correctly, while also delivering business value while they learn.
Imagine learning to play baseball in the way many enterprises learn agile. You assemble nine people in a room, spend eight or 16 hours reviewing the current Major League Baseball rulebook and then tell the “team” to go out and have a winning season.
There is no chance that would work. As soon as the team leaves the safe, theoretical classroom environment, they will immediately have both technical questions, “What’s the infield fly rule again?” and interpersonal ones, “What if I think I should bat third?”The same premise applies when implementing Agile in your development organization. Without learning through hands-on, real-world projects, your teams won’t learn the practical application of critical principles.
