Description

Agile delivery and consulting methods have evolved considerably over the years. Modern methods of Agile project delivery and process improvements have benefitted from the insight of a number of frameworks such as ODI (Outcome-Driven Innovation) or Jobs-To-Be-Done-Theory and Impact Mapping to deliver the right product to the right people at the right time. In this course, we cover modern agile project delivery from inception/ideation to testing and eventually continuous integration and delivery. Along the way, we will gain a better understanding of what an Agile mindset truly is, how to scale effectively, and how focusing on customer outcomes and use case scenarios results in better products and services.

On successful completion of the course, you will receive a Course Completion Certificate from KnowledgeHut.
