OVERVIEW

You’ve heard of Agile and your competitors are starting to implement Agile methodologies and are now getting product(s) to market faster and better than your organization.  How did they do this and why did they do it?

In this agile project management training we will discuss the basic tenants of Agile and some of the more popular frame works involved in Agile transformation.  The topics will include outlines of these frame works, how the organization’s change can improve productivity, ROI and team morale.

Agile helps teams respond to rapidly changing requirements and unpredictability through incremental, iterative work cadences. Agile methodologies are an often very successful alternative to waterfall, or traditional sequential development.

WHY SHOULD YOU ATTEND

Just because it is popular and gains benefit(s) you can’t just DO it.
