  • Project estimation and planning
  • Team leadership

  • Working with your stakeholders and customers
  • Team developmentWhile not a silver bullet, the Agile framework is quickly becoming the most practical way to create outstanding software. This course explores the leading approaches of today’s most successful Agile teams. You’ll learn the basic premise and techniques behind Agile so you can apply them to your projects.

Discover and Harness Strengths across Various Methodologies 

Scrum, Extreme Programming, Lean, Feature Driven Development and other methods each have their strengths. While there are significant similarities under the Agile umbrella, each method brings specific tools for team success. Rarely do organizations adopt one methodology in its pure form. Rather, success is achieved by combining best practices. In class, you will work to define an approach for your unique needs.
