About the course

Overview

This course deals with two important questions: Why should I choose agile? How can I implement it? More specifically we will explore the frameworks available and discuss which ones you should consider based on your needs. Jose Casal, BCS’s Agile Foundations lead creator, will answer these questions over 2 days, leaving you with a much better understanding of agile and its principles.

What you will learn:

  • What led to the development of the Agile Manifesto and principles
  • The rationale and benefits of agile
  • How the agile pillars shape your development process
  • Common agile roles, techniques and practices
  • The differences between agile implementations and frameworks (Scrum, Kanban, XP, etc.)
