Amplio@Teams: The Path to Effective Lean-Agile Teams is a workbook that supports Success Engineering’s Amplio Lean-Agile Teams Masterclass workshop designed for the business professional.

“Amplio” means “improve” in Latin. At Success Engineering, we believe that people need to continuously learn how to improve their methods of adding value to their customers. Success Engineering is creating ‘amplios’  for teams, small scale, large scale, and SAFe. All of these are pragmatic approaches validated with real-world experience. Amplio@Teams: The Path to Effective Lean-Agile Teams is our first offering.

This book and the associated appendices are used in this workshop. Each chapter has the step it is associated with at the end of the title. Being able to apply a method requires five things:

  1. A deep understanding of what’s needed (this book)
  2. An understanding of how to convey it to people (the appendices)
  3. An understanding of how people learn (the appendices)
  4. Tools to help support the above
  5. The right character (you have to supply this).
