9:00am - 4:30pm
The application of Agile principles and practices on software development projects enables a project team to quickly develop working software that meets business needs. In Scrum, teams work in 2-4 week Sprints to produce production-quality software driven by business priorities using an empirical, adaptive approach. This course provides an in-depth understanding of how Agile and Scrum teams deliver business value.
AUDIENCE AND PREREQUISITES
You will learn to apply the basic practices of any Agile approach, with a focus on Scrum. You will apply what you learn in a series of exercises that take you through project start-up, project/release planning, Sprint planning, and Sprint execution. Participants will build and manage a Product Backlog, a Sprint Backlog and a Release Plan.
The course can be modified to use real-life examples and situations from the students’ own experiences.
This course is intended for anyone who will actively participate in a project using this approach. People on the edges of the project (secondary customers, management staff, and participants in related processes) will also benefit. Project teams are encouraged to attend as a group.
