Agile Essentials

Overview: A foundation for your entire team to learn the principles of agility.

Course Description

This course prepares all members of an agile team for the realities of working in a highly collaborative and effective software development environment. Over the course of an intense three days, Agile Foundations provides the breadth and depth of knowledge team members need to begin working in short iterations to produce working software incrementally. Using hands-on exercises, participants learn how to write effective user stories, estimate in relative units, track velocity and plan releases, create and interpret a variety of information radiators, participate in daily stand-ups, and much, much more.
