Transitioning from Waterfall to Agile
Become more Agile in your organization.
Identify the challenges you will face when implementing an Agile method and
plan for a successful transition from waterfall or other traditional software
development approaches! This is your Agile method foundation course.
Agile software development methods represent a departure from traditional
waterfall approaches in significant ways. Yet there are long standing and highly
successful approaches from industry that historically support concepts of
agility going back at least thirty years. Capturing a clear understanding of
these concepts, you will be able to capitalize on them to gain the cooperation
and acceptance of stakeholders who must approve and participate. There are
significant benefits available with Agile methods that can address the high
risks, unknowns, and uncertainties that beset contemporary projects. These
complexities can best be addressed with a flexible and adaptable model that
faces the problems and provides the tools to change the way work is done and
address the issues head on.
In this course, you will experience several case study scenarios that typify
the attributes of most projects in your organization, each providing a
recognition point as you explore and discuss the hurdles to Agile. Learn to
overcome these hurdles and interweave your traditional practices with Agility to
develop the best software for your organization.
