Agile and Taiga Foundations

Course Number:


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. These exercises are then extended to include information from the team’s current project.

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.


This course is appropriate for one or more Agile teams just starting or about to start on a new project.
