Business needs and technology are constantly evolving through cycles of change. Traditional approaches to learning development have had trouble quickly translating a business requirement into an appropriate learning solution available at the moment of need. This delay causes dissatisfaction for the audience for several reasons; most notably, it increases time to competency because learners don’t have the proper learning resources to complete the job. So how can you get faster at designing and developing the learning experiences your audiences need?

In this session, you will learn how to create cross-functional (integrated) teams that can start using agile project management and engage in all steps of the value stream, from analysis to design, development, testing, and release. You will learn how to maintain focus on business value throughout the entire journey by adopting an agile scrum approach. This approach enables frequent deliveries of learning solutions, as well as feedback from your intended audience, and it helps your team speed up your production timelines so you can more quickly create the right learning solutions aligned to the business need.

In this session, you will learn:

  • What agile project management is
  • About the benefits of using agile
  • About the team’s key lessons learned
  • How the team used agile methods to develop learning solutions
  • About critical components of agile scrum
