Transitioning from Waterfall to Agile

Become more Agile in your organization.

GK# 2501

Course Overview

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.
