I attended the Agile training at Elabor8 through my work, and expected just that... to learn about a tool and experience to use at work. With the excellent Sarah leading us, I was able to explore other areas of my life that could benefit from using the Kanban board. My partner is a musician and songwriter, starting out on his first solo album. At that time, he had about 9 songs, in various stages of completion and no clear way of working out which one to work on next! I created a very simple Kanban board for him, with sticky notes. At first he was confused about what help this would be, but once I explained it, told him he could change any of the columns if it made more sense to him, he was hooked! So at a much faster pace, not only did he stop berating himself for not getting anything done, quite the opposite, he focused on how far he'd come and how much needed to be worked on to finish each song. Pleased to say, that that first album "One" by Woody! is due to be released at the end of May 2020. Thanks Sarah!

Elabor8 facilitated a full-day workshop for our whole team, bringing together project managers, designers and developers. Our group was skilfully lead through an exploration of Agile methodology by Cath, who challenged and engaged us all with structured exercises and tasks. Cath was very practical with her recommendations for change within our business; advocating for a gradual roll out of Agile processes. We are already seeing positive changes as a result of the inspiring session.

Having recently completed the Agile Fundamentals course with Elabor8 I can honestly say it was one of the most enjoyable, engaging and insightful courses I have participated in. The instructor's knowledge and expertise in projects, agile and delivery came through the entire course. I left the course inspired and motivated to re-learn. Even though the course was delivered remotely I managed to engage and build connections with the class. I will recommend Elabor8 to everyone I know.
Roberto Donato, Attendee
Living in a COVID-19 world, I quickly realised I needed new and better ways to work in order to deliver business value.
I'd heard that the Online Agile Fundamentals course by the Training Academy of Elabor8 was one of the best courses to do this.
I'm really glad I took the course. It expanded my understanding on how to implement the Agile Mindset, introduced me to practical frameworks and tools so that I can maximise real value from myself and others.
Sarah Rose (the trainer), provided a great balance between theory and practical, using online tools really well to ensure the session was informative and engaging.
So much better than other static online courses I've taken.
Vimi Desai, Attendee
Elabor8 were able to tailor their course during a period when our workforce (among many others around the globe) had moved to remote work. They maintained their usual high level of engagement with our audiences and were able to accommodate not just our IT teams but a team from our Theatre who we're keen on learning about Agile Ways of Working. I was impressed as I listened in, as our teams developed new skills and interacted throughout the day and how they came away with the ability to start practicing what they had learnt. I am looking forward to working with Elabor8 in the future to role out Agile and Scrum to even more people in the organisation.
Adam O’Brien, City of Newcastle, Product Portfolio Chapter Lead
Agile has worked really well within our context and we are confident it will continue to help us grow and improve. The idea that Agile is a mindset has resonated for us, and we can use aspects of the framework depending on the project. Ultimately, it has helped us to foster a positive team culture and the benefits of that cannot be underestimated.
We were also really impressed with the Elabor8 training and Sarah’s ability to contextualise the principles to our experience. Her understanding of our journey so far and ability to remember individual conversations over the past 12 months was noticeable.
Daniel Moss, Emerging Minds, Workforce Development Manager
Recently I undertook the Agile Fundamental two day course led by Elabor8. There were 20 team members on the course, at all levels of understanding of Agile and I can honestly say, the delivery of the course was fresh, interactive and not your standard ‘death by powerpoint’ some of use may have seen with some course delivery. Rebecca delivered in such a way, we were all very much engaged, and such, we were able to understand the content, enabled everyone to interact, and most importantly, it was a fun way to understand the fundamentals of ‘Agile’. I would very much recommend anyone who wishes to explore this subject, to engage with Rebecca and her team at Elabor8.
Tracey Moore, Attendee - ANZ
The course was an excellent grounding in all aspects of agile, with a good balance between theory and practice across the two days. The group activities gave us the opportunity to both learn and practise the concepts we were introduced to and kept the energy high in the room. Overall it was a really engaging course with plenty of practical frameworks, tools and ways of working to take back to our workplaces.
Kate Richardson, Attendee
Elabor8 were great to work with, they listen to your needs and work through training options to match. We ran three waves off the Agile Fundamentals course with three different flavours based on each group. It gave our leaders and squads a perfect benchmark to launch into our new way of working.
James Pulling, Agile & Continuous Improvement Lead - Open Universities Australia
I'd already been working in an agile project, but the course provided a lot of theory to explain the practise and fill in the gaps. The course was very well organised and run, with a good mix of practical exercises to complement the topics discussed and presented by people who have worked in an agile environment. Whether you're completely new to agile, or already have some experience working in an agile environment, there will be a lot of things for you to take away from the course.
Andy Kirby, Systems Analyst
I have attended many Agile related training courses over my career, but I always find myself seeking out Elabor8 when I want to expand my formal Agile learning. In my experience, the range of courses Elabor8 offer, as well as the fantastic trainers they have are second to none.
Last year, Nish delivered the Agile Fundamentals training for a number of people I work with. His engagement, knowledge, approach and ability to adjust his delivery of the content was exceptional.
