Course Overview

The Agile Overview course provides an introduction to agile methods and focuses on the most widely-adopted approaches to agile, exploring the principles and practices, whilst highlighting the benefits, risks and impacts of agile adoption. The course includes tips for introducing Agile into an organisation and identifies the support available.

Agile methods like DSDM, eXtreme Programming and Scrum have been proven to deliver business value by accelerating project delivery, increasing customer and employee satisfaction and embracing changes in business requirements.

Agile approaches focus on business goals and producing results incrementally, visibly and effectively. This is achieved through business-driven prioritisation of features, along with the use of defined roles and techniques that promote effective communication.

Many organisations are now realising the benefits of Agile in improved project performance and return on investment.
