Agile Projects in Practice
Live Instructor-Led Classroom Training
Use the Agile Methodology to rethink your approach to software projects.
Agile projects are causing quite a stir. People are often confused about the goals and practices of the Agile approaches. Is it something completely new? Is it repackaging the old principles? Is it something radical? Well! Perhaps yes to all three. Can it work in our culture? Yes, it can work in almost any culture. Agile by definition has some flexibility and — although it may upset the purists — can be adjusted to fit into most tolerance levels.
The most important issue is to fully understand how to apply the principles and then you are free to adjust with a clear conscience, knowing that you have achieved the best use for your environment.
This 2-day workshop takes you through the main project activities and shows how to apply Agile principles to each. It presents the Agile methodologies such as eXtreme Programming and shows how they may be incorporated into the project. Remember, Agile does not mean abandoning all discipline and control; it means knowing and applying what is "just enough" to get the job done at maximum productivity.
Who Should Attend
Agile methodologies and eXtreme Programming work best when all stakeholders have some level of understanding of the principles and practices. Project managers, developers and project team members are obvious candidates, but everyone from customers to programmers can benefit from this material. This workshop is for project managers, developers, programmers, testers, system architects, sponsors, program managers and customers.
