At the heart of any agile project lies an agile team. As Agile becomes the preferred project management approach for fast-moving projects you will need to know how to build and manage these types of teams. In this course, Geoff Emery, will use a sample project to show how to build your agile team. A team with an agile mindset is self-organized, collaborative, and accountable.

This course is a part of a series of Agile Courses I have done here on Udemy to help you and your team be successful with agile by covering all the essentials!
Whether you're a project manager, a software developer, or a senior manager, this course is designed to help you get greater agility from your team buy becoming great with Agile Estimation.
Many teams start out by thinking of Agile like any new tool set, almost like they're training on how to play a new sport. First, you learn the equipment, then you learn how to swing, then you learn how to catch, and then, finally, the team is playing well together. But, if you see Agile as simply a new set of tools, then you're unlikely to have any real productivity gains.
In this section we go over how to get your organization on board by not starting to promise immediate results. That type of expectation is almost sure to fizzle. Instead, start by listing the challenges you have with your current projects.
There are many different ways to start promoting Agile within your organization. Often, you'll want to convince several groups of stakeholders. The two groups of Stakeholders you'll usually have are the Executive sponsors and Development managers. When you're starting Agile in your organization, these groups are interested in very different things.
