The use of Agile as an approach to managing projects has increased dramatically over the last several years. Project Management Institute's (PMI) research has shown that the use of Agile practices has tripled since 2008 and the demonstrated benefits associated with Agile Development can lead to a decrease in product defects, improved team productivity, and increased delivery of business value.
Today’s business environment is fast moving and constantly changing in order to keep up with competitors, new technology and customer demands. Agile is an iterative and incremental approach where requirements and solutions evolve through collaboration between self-organizing and cross-functional teams.
Through hands-on group exercises, participants will experience what it means to be agile while gaining an appreciation for key techniques. The program is designed for high knowledge retention and to keep attendees fully engaged throughout.
This program consists of two courses: Introduction to Agile, Scrum, and Kanban (14 hours) for individuals who are new to Agile; and Advanced Agile Practices (21 hours) for those with experience in the methodology. These courses may be taken individually or combined to complete the certificate program.
