Full course description
What is Agile training?
Agile training helps teams resolve many of the common issues that arise when integrating Agile and Waterfall project management practices. Agile professionals will learn how to better diagnose and solve underlying problems that may be hindering the performance of Agile teams.
Why is Agile important for my team?
Agile is important because it can help solve some of the common productivity and communication struggles your team may face. Agile is an iterative approach to project management where a team produces a project incrementally instead of all at once. This approach gives teams more opportunities to receive stakeholder feedback and adapt to change. This flexible process also facilitates communication and continuous improvement.
