Course Overview Hi everyone. My name is Jeremy Jarrell, and welcome to my course, Empowering Your Team with ICAgile. I'm an agile coach who helps teams get better at doing what they love. Did you know that to create a high-performing team, you need more than just to gather a few talented individuals together? To truly create a high-performing team, those individuals must intentionally focus on learning to become a productive and cohesive unit. In this course, you'll learn the skills you need to help your team identify how they can work together more effectively so they can make the biggest possible impact inside of your organization. Some of the major topics that we will cover include promoting collaboration across your team even when your team is spread across a distributed environment, understanding the different types of knowledge that exist on your team, as well as strategies for sharing each type of knowledge effectively, methods and strategies for communicating the progress your team is making to the rest of your organization, as well as how to choose the right approach for self-organization for your team and how to foster that approach within your team, and how to find success with an Agile approach with your team even when the rest of your organization may not be quite ready to take the plunge. By the end of this course, you'll have the skills necessary to help your team transition from a group of individuals who simply share a space to a truly cohesive and high-performing unit. I hope that you'll join me on this journey to learn how you can enable a high-performing team with the Empowering Your Team with ICAgile course at Pluralsight.
