National Maritime Museum improves agile fluency with training

Play-based learning to teach Scrum, Scrumban, Lean and Kanban makes understanding agile basics, theory and process easy.

The Situation

What agile method is best for your organisation and the type of work you do? 

The National Maritime Museum engaged ZXM to present an unbiased view of the range of agile frameworks and their strengths and weaknesses to help improve their agile fluency to determine where their agile journey should start.

The Solution

Agile fundamentals courses typically run 2-3 days in length. It’s a hard slog.

ZXM delivered a single day course that focussed on play-based learning and building engaging experiences around key agile concepts, including:

  • What is agile?
  • Where did it come from – The Deming Cycle and the New New Product Development Game
  • Agile Manifesto
  • Agile mindset
  • Agile frameworks and practices in detail – Scrum, Kanban and Lean
  • Roles and responsibilities
  • Flow and waste
  • Estimation
  • Agile reporting
  • Common approaches to scale delivery beyond one team
LEGO Scrum Game to sumulate Sprints, collaborative work, and continuous integration.

The Results

In a single day, ZXM created a baseline of understanding of Lean, Kanban and Scrum so that all participants had a shared understanding of terminology, process, and benefits of different frameworks. This empowered the National Maritime Museum to make an informed choice of which frameworks, practices and patterns to use across both their software- and non-software development teams.
