  • Project Managers and Team Members interested in Agile but with little hands-on experience;
  • Anyone interested in Agile ways of working and would like hands-on experience;
  • Agile Practitioners who would like to participate in a collaborative workshop and share their knowledge and experience.

  1. Explain the Agile lifecycle and ceremonies;
  2. Explain User Stories and how they can be used to define a product;
  3. Explain how to set up an Agile board and how it can be maintained in Jira;
  4. Create a simple digital product using Mockflow over multiple sprints.
