Agile and Taiga Foundations

This customizable, 2-day workshop is designed to quickly get a team or teams up and running with Taiga. In-class exercises introduce participants to their roles, responsibilities, interactions, tools and Agile processes.

The workshop’s typical crawl-walk-run format includes: a crawl stage with presentations and discussion of key concepts; a walk stage that includes an experiential exercise to learn how to apply concepts; a run stage where the exercises are repeated using actual data from the team’s project.
