Agile Harmonizer Workshop

Course Number:



The Agile Harmonizer Workshop is intended to fine-tune the processes that your teams are already running. This means the workshop should include all scrum team members: Scrum masters, product owners, development teams, QA and any others involved.
Course Duration:
1 to 2 Days


The Agile Harmonizer workshop is designed for organizations and teams who are already working through the Agile processes but are finding inefficiencies in their performance. Although this workshop does not require an individual or team to have taken any course or training, we recommend individuals and teams already know the fundamentals of Agile projects. Our workshops typically follow a coach’s assessment of your team. If your team is not familiar with the basics, we recommend starting with our Agile Foundations class.

Course Objectives:
  • Identify and understand the team’s current impediments or roadblocks to full agility
  • Remove those impediments and their root causes to allow the team and the organization to flourish
  • Additional objectives are customized for each engagement based off team responses to the Agile Maturity Model and goals of the organization and team
