Description

Agile methods emphasize flexibility and adaptability, and the Agile framework lends itself well to projects where requirements and solutions evolve with time. Scrum, with its inherent simplicity and lightweight processes, is the most popular way of introducing Agility to a project.

The course provides a detailed overview of Agile ideas and enables the delegates to apply them through practical exercises using the Scrum methodology.

The training offers an overview of Agile development and Scrum practices, focusing on how the Scrum framework follows the Agile Manifesto principles. Agile software development is based on principles defined by the Agile Manifesto; a disciplined project management outline that is conducive to dynamic inspection and adaptation. Agile methods include many product development frameworks such as Scrum and XP (eXtreme Programming) which allow for rapid delivery of software. The Scrum framework uses simple iterative practices for team collaboration on complex projects.
