What you'll learn in this agile training:

The concept of Agile software development incorporates the principles and precepts of a number of software development and quality management methods that are based on speeding the time to market.

The Agile development approach enables cycle-time reductions through lower process overhead and more efficient and responsive practices. Its benefits have also been adapted outside of the IT environment to benefit other types of projects.

This course presents the Agile approach and principles showing the participant how they differ from the traditional approach to managing software development. The overall goal of the course is twofold:
  • To introduce the Agile software development approach’s principles and practices
  • To explore how this approach could enhance the more traditional development and project management philosophies and practices
This course is designed for:
  • Developers interested in learning Agile concepts and practices
  • IT managers who want to know what all the fuss is about
  • Those involved in the Agile approach who want to refine their techniques or learn some new practices
  • Project managers interested in leading their software projects with more agility
Course participants will understand the basic Agile approach and the various methods for achieving agility and will be able to:
  • Compare and contrast the Agile approach to the continuum of more traditional software development approaches
  • Apply selected Agile practices to specific software development situations
  • Explain selected Agile leadership principles that enable an Agile approach to project management, either in or beyond the software development environment
  • Define and adapt a process for transforming an existing software development methodology to a more Agile approach
Basic familiarity with software development and software engineering terms and techniques
