Introduction to Agile

Lay the foundation for building your Agile success.

GK# 2506

Course Overview

Agile success demands a strong and stable foundation.

To incorporate an Agile methodology or practice into your SDLC with an expectation of shredding the rigid discipline of your current method is a sure path to failure. The common misconception is that Agility means lack of order, which is not the case. Agility in software requires strong discipline. In order to successfully implement Agility, you must have a solid foundation in the practices and procedures you wish to adapt and learn how to follow those practices correctly while tying them to rigid quality goals.

This workshop will give you the foundation of knowledge and experience you need. Get the techniques, skills, and tools that enable you to build Agile discipline.

Define the principles, advantages, and disadvantages of Agile development. Get first-hand experience by organizing and participating in an Agile team. Put the concepts you learn to practice instantly in the classroom project. Understand and learn how to take advantage of the opportunities for Agile. Finally get a detailed understanding and practice the collaboration and communication needed between customer and developers for Agile to succeed.
