"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.

Following initial 2 day introductory courses to Agile, Zhi at Teamworx successfully helped to support, coach and launch several internal project inceptions utilising the knowledge gained from the introductory courses.
With a flexible approach to our multi-disciplinary teams, Teamworx were able to rapidly stand up teams, support and generate engagement and provide just the right level of coaching to enable our teams to become self sufficient and self organising over a short period of time.
Engagement and output from our teams is high and we continue to roll out the practices learnt across the organisation as a result.
If you need to make positive change with your teams within your business I would thoroughly recommend Zhi and Teamworx.
- Rich Evans, Chief Operating Officer, Methven
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
I really want to give A HUGE shout out to Zhi and the Team from Teamworx. Teamworx planned and ran a teambuilding day for us. From our first briefing meeting to the sessions, Zhi ensured everything was done to perfection. I recommend Teamworx without hesitation.
