What is Agile?

Agile methods are set of related, lightweight, frameworks, based on empirical methods. Instead of planning the entire effort upfront, we plan, design, and architect just enough to get started. Then, we continually and collaboratively learn as we go and use what we learn to adjust our plans, designs, and architectures.

The Agile Manifesto

Agile methods became popular starting in 2001 after the creation of the Agile Manifesto (www.agilemanifesto.org). The core values of the manifesto are:

  • Individuals and interactions over processes and tools
  • Working software over comprehensive documentation
  • Customer collaboration over contract negotiation
  • Responding to change over following a plan

Scrum and the Workshop

Scrum is the most popular of the agile frameworks. It is a simple set of principles and practices that help teams deliver in short cycles, enabling fast feedback, continual learning, and rapid change to maximize value based on the world as we understand it today. Scrum defines roles, ceremonies, and artifacts that have become the basis for most agile transformations. The Certified ScrumMaster™ Certification is the most well-established and respected certification in the agile community and the certifying agency is the Scrum Alliance.

This two day workshop will be delivered as fun, interactive, hands-on sessions.

After the session you will be registered wscrum alliance logoith the Scrum Alliance to take the certifying exam. There is no additional charge for the exam.
