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.
Introduction to Agile (Scrum), was created for organisations which are interested in adopting Agile software development approaches. The course provides a detailed overview of Agile ideas and enables the delegates to apply them through practical exercises using the Scrum methodology. Our faculty has real-world exposure to implementing and leading Agile projects, and can teach tips and techniques from their own personal experiences.
This training is being conducted in partnership with the George Training and Development Institute.
The course content is designed to be flexible to suit different needs. The core course modules can either be supplemented with optional modules, exploring Agile topics in more detail, or by further practical Scrum exercises to embed the methodology more firmly.
