Course Description Schedule

Course Overview

This course including a practical exercise provides an introduction to Agile and an overview of the principles of the leading Agile methods; including Scrum, eXtreme Programming and Lean Software Development.

Agile has caught the attention of business leaders in the UK and globally as a means of managing change, reducing time to market, eliminating waste and attracting and retaining customers. Agile has matured beyond the confines of software development and is being applied by organisations seeking to improve their way of working.

We explore the drivers and business value of Agile, introduce valuable practices into the core DNA of your business and highlight cultural and operational changes required for sustainable and effective agility.
