Fundamentals to Agile

Course Overview

Why do you need to attend this course? There is a school of through which believes that Agility means ‘reactiveness’ instead of ‘proactiveness’, in other words, lack of order or discipline. Which is often as a result of misinterpretation of Agile manifesto; “responding to change over following a plan”. These are one of the major causes of failure in Agile transformation when the fundamentals of Agility are missing. Agility in Product/service development requires strong discipline. In order to successfully create Agility, you must have a solid foundation in the practices and procedures you wish to adapt and learn how to keep the practices.

Fundamental to Agile is a foundational core course in transitioning to Agile product/service development. In this course you will learn the concepts, values, principles, and frameworks of Agile development. This course will empower you to lead the change, implement and execute on your plans for adapting Agile practices and techniques into your organization. This course is not only theoretical, but with case studies and workshops to equip you with the needed skills at the end of the training.

What is in this course for me? This course is the first and most important you need to begin Agile journey. It is the starting point to acquire the techniques, skills, and tools that enable you to build Agile discipline. In addition to Agile values and principles, we will cover the advantages of Agile development. Learn about leading, organizing and participating in an agile team, and understand the emergent practices of the most popular Agile frameworks. Understand and learn how to maximize the opportunities for business agility and customer centricity. Finally gain an understanding and practice in co-value creation between your customers and the Agile teams.
