Get started now with the Agile Research Mastery
Agile market research is fast and adaptable. It focuses on the essentials and thus wastes neither time nor resources. Agile research ensures that all decisions are made on the premise: "What's in it for the client and what's in it for our project goal?" Briefly:
"Agile research creates the basis for successful solutions that users desperately want."
But how reliable is the data that the agile teams collect? Can deep insights even be gained in a sprint? And how impartially do agile teams deal with feedback when their ideas are critically assessed by users?
"Agile projects can also get bogged down and lead to solutions that are anything but user-centred. Misinterpretations, biases and methodological shortcomings in user research can slow teams down."
Why you should start the Agile Research Mastery now
The Agile Research Mastery enables you to combine the advantages of sound market research and agile project management. The highlight: The Agile Research Mastery is aimed at researchers as well as agile coaches and team members in your organisation. You learn and experience agile research together from different perspectives and through mutual inspiration. Depending on your experience background, you can determine the focus of the training for the participants yourself.
Basic module - Agile work and research
Agile working - Being Agile & Doing Agile
Here you will experience how agile thinking and agile principles work and how you can benefit from them in your projects. Doing Agile deals with the methods and tools of agile project management. You will get to know this and/or learn how you can align existing methods and tools in your organisation in a more profitable and customer-centric way.
Agility in research - people, tools and techniques
In this chapter, we look at the roles, tasks and competence requirements related to market research in agile projects. Furthermore, you will experience tried and tested and experimental approaches to agile research. We will introduce you to solutions from different providers and discuss the possibilities and limitations of tools and techniques in different project phases.
Empathy and Insights
Agile teams - or rather whole organisations - need to build and maintain empathy for their target groups. It needs emotional closeness but also scientific distance to be able to classify and use the experiences in the sense of the project. In this module you will learn how to recognise valuable insights and create empathy for the users.
