If you are someone who is curious about the merits of Agile as a software development tool, then this course is for you.
As a practical methodology, Agile is applicable to all kinds of teams within IT, but in particular software engineers and project managers who are in charge of a development team.
Learning about Agile will greatly benefit your organisation, helping you transition towards a more adaptive approach based on small, closely-knit teams and ever-shifting goals.
Previous Attendees: Business Analysts, Project Managers, Software Developers, IT Architects, Quality Assurance Teams, Scrum Teams.
The culture of Agile accepts the dynamic nature of software development projects. Adopting the method will produce immediate results in terms of output. Course content is delivered over a two-day period through a combination of lectures and workshop-based exercises.
You will be armed with the methods and practices to implement Agile in your organisation. This will transform the way you approach project management and software development.
You can adapt Agile to every aspect of the developmental process, employing it to improve efficiency, security, enterprise architecture development, departmental policy, service management and much more.
As an employee, your mindset will be more proactive; you will be better able to respond to change through the techniques you have learned.

Many software projects are managed and performed in a volatile environment where customer and end-user requirements emerge throughout development. As a result of this instability, traditional predictive or “waterfall” approaches to software development can fail and result in poor work practices and dependence on “heroic behaviour” to drag projects over the line. “Lightweight” or agile methods were created to tackle this issue.
