The application of Agile principles and practices on software development projects enables a project team to quickly develop working software that meets business needs. In Scrum, teams work in 2-4 week Sprints to produce production-quality software driven by business priorities using an empirical, adaptive approach. This course provides an in depth understanding of how Agile and Scrum teams deliver business value.
You will learn to apply the basic practices of any Agile approach, with a focus on Scrum. You will apply what you learn in a series of exercises that take you through identification of user stories, project/release planning, Sprint planning, and Sprint execution. Participants will build and manage a Product Backlog, a Sprint Backlog and a Release Plan.
This course uses a combination of lecture, class discussion, and hands-on exercises, with emphasis on group activities, to reinforce the concepts and principles.
