Almost everyone has heard how Agile approaches achieve high productivity with a minimum of complexity. Though relatively light on process, the highly iterative and fast-moving nature of Agile projects require both disciplined execution and simple, yet sophisticated, tools. Tools help automate the communication and collaboration required to successfully execute the daily Agile development plan.

Our instructors' real-world expertise takes you far beyond fundamentals demonstrating how to successfully tailor, adopt, and roll-out agile practices for your team, culture, project, and environment - saving your team the frustration and agony of learning on the job
