Let Go of Knowing

On-Demand Video

When we let go of knowing, we open ourselves to learning

Could some of your firmly held convictions about agile be holding you back?

Have you ever wondered why some of your agile peers are similarly firm in their own opinions—even ones that are the exact opposite of your own?

In this free course, Mike Cohn shows you how to question and test your current agile opinions, so you can be more successful.

About this Course

Let Go of Knowing is a short course based on Mike Cohn’s popular conference keynote session. 

It’s a great way to think about agile with a fresh perspective—by making sure biases aren’t holding you back from success. 

Mike even shares his personal experiences of when some of his agile beliefs turned out to be wrong, and how letting go of what he thought he knew, meant his team found a better way to work. 

This short course shows you how assumptions can stop you from finding the best way to work, but why you also don’t need to question everything to have an open mind.

General How do I pay for a course for someone else?

During the checkout process, use your own payment details, your name and your email address to make the purchase. On completion of the purchase, you can then assign the course to your chosen recipient.

General Are your courses only for software developers?

On-Demand Video How is the course delivered?

Video courses are delivered through streaming videos plus course materials. Once you join you will receive an email with full login and registration instructions. You will be automatically enrolled in the course and able to access the course immediately.

On-Demand Video Can I share the videos with my team or my group?

Each license is for one person. You cannot share the videos, audio files, worksheets, or transcripts with others. You can, of course, share what you’ve learned with others.

On-Demand Video What if the course isn’t right for me?

If you’re not happy, we’re not happy. We want you to feel confident about enrolling in our on-demand courses, so we offer a full, 30-day money-back guarantee. Just email us within the first 30 days, and we’ll give you a full refund.

On-Demand Video Can we watch as a group?

Yes, in fact we encourage you to do so. However, the course is licensed individually so each person watching needs to own a license. Think of it like a movie theater: If four of you go to a movie together, you each buy a ticket. If you do intend to watch as a group, you may want to take advantage of our group pricing.

On-Demand Video Do I get a certificate?

Upon completion of the course you get a certificate of completion and digital badge that can be displayed on social networks, etc...
