Agile Refinement Coaching

Auxilium’s practical approach to agile NPD training and coaching considers the need for a hybrid approach to manage complex product development projects. We generally favor agile methods in our experience for efficient management of changes and new information, with the sequential considerations necessary for managing critical factors such as lead times, dependencies and production ramp-up.

agile project management

Starting with agile NPD training is a good approach for developing awareness and basic skills quickly with minimal investment. Our approach is hands-on learning using relevant use cases aligned with your types of product development projects. The training outcome will help your team determine if piloting on a real project is the right next step.

Benefits of Agile NPD Training and Coaching

Online or Onsite

Depending on your preference and budget, training can be facilitated online, onsite or a combination. Program delivery is typically online, scheduled as a series of 2-hour sessions with time between sessions for advancing the use case and creating artifacts for review. Onsite workshops can range from two full days to a week, depending on learning objectives and group size. Small groups of 12 people or fewer are preferred for online sessions, and 25 or fewer for onsite facilitation.

Experienced Trainers

All training is facilitated by Auxilium certified consultants with real-world experience developing physical products. Because our focus is on manufactured product development, our agile training is more practical and relevant than software-based agile training that’s commonly available.

Coaching-Only Option

If your team is already experienced with agile methods and just needing support for refinement, we can provide a flexible coaching solution. Typical coaching support is hourly sessions scheduled on a weekly or bi-weekly cadence including artifact review between sessions for a pre-determined duration.
