ICAgile - Agile Fundamentals

The purpose of this highly immersive, two-day course is to help delegates to understand the principles of Agile and in particular, Scrum. They will work in teams to produce a piece of work over a series of sprints. In addition to understanding the rules of Scrum, the team will also appreciate how Scrum can be blended with other complementary practices such as Kanban. Students will experience the value of cross-functional teams and the benefits that agile frameworks such as Scrum provide.

In order to succeed with agile, teams and organisations should focus first on “being agile” as a foundation for success in “doing agile.” ICAgile's fundamentals learning objectives delve into key concepts such as adaptive planning, value-driven development, team collaboration and frequent feedback for continuous improvement. The course also covers the history of agile, the agile manifesto, the agile principles, and some widely applied frameworks and practices. Delegates come away with a solid understanding of core concepts as they prepare to embark on their agile journey.
