Program Description

The mindful use of Agile development practices, for both management (e.g., Scrum) and technical work (e.g., XP), empower teams to produce superior results in terms of delivering the highest value and quality product in a short period of time, within an accent on increasing the team's productivity, compared to non-Agile methods. Improvements on the order of 2x-4x or more can be achieved. This translates into cost savings as well as improved customer satisfaction. Also, teams and individuals enjoy and prefer the Agile work environment over non-Agile, once they learn and adapt to it. The Agile Expert® training from eConsulting Group™ is based on real-world, hands-on experience of what works (and doesn't work) in applying Agile practices, within different industries, to achieve these gains. Many of these practices and the underlying principles belong to the class called Lean Development (which is nearly synonymous with Agile Development), which has roots in Lean Production, Lean Six Sigma, and Scaled Agile. Lean-Six Sigma and Scaled Agile are frameworks that we teach within this program. The successful deployment of agile concepts suggests that the Agile principles and practices are applicable beyond software development to other industries, government, military, including general management as well. The class material will prepare students to sit for other Agile/Scrum exams, such as: PMI-ACP® (Agile Certified Practitioner).
