Agile ASAP: The Agile Fundamentals (2/25/14)
Description: Complete experiential introduction to Agile with strong emphasis on iterative, incremental development using Scrum.
Objective: The course objective is to impart the essentials of authentic Agile and Scrum to each participant in the shortest amount of time, via active classroom participation in team exercises, such that each student is ready to bring Agile and Scrum knowledge and experience back to their real-world teams who are planning and building complex products.
Qualifications for Attendance: We expect you to have some knowledge and experience with the typical Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) . This is also known as the Waterfall Method. This model has the following activities: System/Information Engineering and Modeling, Software Requirement Analysis, System Analysis and Design, Code creation, Testing, and Maintenance. Some knowledge of Agile & Scrum is useful but not required.
Who Should Attend: Project sponsors, project managers, project leads, developers, users and testers . Middle managers get A LOT from this course because it is AUTHENTIC Agile and Scrum. As such, middle managers see what "doing Agile" or "adopting Scrum" really means. Adopting these methods enhances and increases the influence of the middle manager. There is nothing to fear from Agile and Scrum, as this class demonstrates. How much more productive and happy teams are when using Agile and the Scrum framework.
