Course Topics

Agile/Scrum Essentials for Practitioners – 2:24 hours

There is a lot of buzz today around Agile as a different approach to managing projects, specifically software development and implementation projects. Unfortunately, when Agile was first being introduced it was set in opposition to traditional or waterfall project management approaches. This caused an unnecessary and counterproductive riff that was mostly due to a lack of understanding and a few overzealous evangelists. Today Agile is more main stream, particularly in IT, and much of this division has started to erode. However, a comprehensive understand of the mindset of Agile over a few well known practices like the daily scrum, is foundational to truly leveraging the benefits of Agile and creating an environment that if both fun to work in and produces high quality business results. This session on Agile will give you the foundational background that will help you understand how Agile is different and why certain practices make more sense and result in more productive teams. You will see how Agile is as much of a mindset as it is a project management framework and how adopting Agile can turn your next project into a success.
