Improv-ing Agile Teams FAQs

Do I have to do all modules ?

No! The Improv-ing Agile Teams series is designed so that each module is loosely-coupled… meaning that each module can be completed in isolation.

Do I have to do the modules in order?

No! The Improv-ing Agile Teams series is modular and designed to allow trainees to pick and choose sessions that are of interest to them! Pick one, pick three, pick them all… and do in any order you wish!

Do I need any improv or acting experience to attend?

None at all! All the Improv-ing Agile Team modules are designed for Agile practitioners looking to develop advanced soft-skills. They are therefore appropriate for novice improvisers, but equally suitable for seasoned actors!

Is there a discount if I do more than one module?

Yes! If you purchase five modules at the same time, the cost is reduced. Simply purchase the bundle course (5 x sessions) which can be found on our site.

I can’t see dates that are suitable for me. Will others be added?

We are adding dates all the time, so more dates will be available soon. Please contact us for more information on future dates for the modules.

This feels like it should be very interactive. Is 90 minutes’ enough time to learn effectively.

Absolutely. Each 90-minute session has more than enough time to play/experience several short-form improv games which are chosen to specifically address the module topic.
