      Agile Tools Startup Workshop+Coaching presented by Agile Media Consulting

      Patricia Anglano is an Agile Transformation Coach and Organizational Development consultant and has taught introductory workshops and an 8-week Agile Project Management class at Coloft Academy this year.

      This workshop focuses specifically on "Agile tools for Entrepreneurs and Start-Ups". It speaks to the needs of product ownership and how you can utilize Agile methodology tools and processes for new product development, team building, and overall successful execution whether it is a proof of concept or building out an existing online or mobile application.

      No technical knowledge or knowledge of Agile Methodologies is required for this workshop as the first 90 min. covers basic Agile tools and applications for Product owners before practically applying those in the second part of the bootcamp. After the class every student can take advantage of the 30 min. 1:1 coaching call with the Instructor. This hands-on workshop is limited to 12 participants.

      Student takeaways:

      1. 90 min. Basic knowledge of Agile Methodologies class but specific to Product Owners/Creators
      2. 60 min. Practical Application of knowledge with your product or service in mind
      3. 30 min. 1:1 coaching after bootcamp to answer any outstanding questions
      4. Strategic product review and opportunity to redefine why and how you build a product or service in a start-up phase
      5. Learn about Agile execution tools that can help your team become more effective and focused
      6. Connect with other entrepreneurs and start-ups and feel the support of an Agile start-up community

      Who it's for:

      This workshop is great for anyone who simply has an idea for a new start-up, those in a critical stage of development and of course those who feel stuck (haven't we all) and need to take a closer look at the why and how of their product.Instructor: Patricia Anglano
