We offer courses on specific Agile topics and techniques, practical workshops, and on-site coaching

The Teamworx Approach

Our work with you begins with a straight up conversation about your goals. Because Agile is a set of principles as opposed to a rigid framework, we can help you cherry pick the right amount of "Agile" for your organisation. We stick around till the job is done, or leave when you feel there is no more value to add. We never administer cookie cutter Agile rituals; instead we will apply the appropriate Agile ingredients that best suits you.

What is Agile?

"Agile" is an approach to software development, that's now commonly applied to non-software teams and project work. It revolves around having a shared understanding of the work, the spirit of continuous improvement, and delivering incremental bits of value to the customer. Often described as a "mindset", there are 12 Agile principles:

We asked Zhi to come in and run an introductory course on Agile: it’s principles, its manifestations and how to use it. Wow, what an incredible amount of digestible information and practices all in a very limited timeframe. Our team came away with a much deeper understanding of Agile and how to use it as well as some practical skills that we can readily use in our everyday work. The format of theory and practice meant the team could absorb new information then use it in the activity setting to embed the ideas and have a bunch of fun while we were doing it. I would highly recommend Zhi. He was well-prepared, the information was very easy to understand and the pace of learning was perfect. His style of facilitation and teaching was excellent. Thanks a lot.

- Julian Lambert, Permanent Business Manager, Potentia



The workshop that Zhi presented gave me an insight into the world of Agile and gave me a desire to learn more. His workshop was interactive, experiential and most of all, fun. Setting the intention at the beginning as to what I wanted to get out of the workshop helped to keep focus and reviewing at the end gave a sense of accomplishment. I recommend Zhi’s workshops to anyone who is interested in getting a taster to Agile and beyond.

- Eri Taylor, IT Project Coordinator, Designertech

Whether it be the strong Scrum process he worked to fine tune, or his ability to always collaborate to bring the best minds to the task, whether they where technical or non, creative, engineering or business. We always knew that the New Zealand projects were under the care of a set of steady hands.

Zhi is an effective coach, an inspiring leader and great manager. He has really built the capability of the teams in Agile development practices as well as challenging the teams to leverage their own capability in order to drive outcome driven development.
