About the course
Bring your team together and jumpstart your Agile practice.
The only route to Agile success is practice. Just like quality software development itself, Agile is more art than science. The art of Agile must be practiced and finely tuned over multiple iterations.
In this Agile Boot Camp, you will put the knowledge, skills, tools and techniques you are taught to work. The classroom will be divided into Agile teams, and your expert instructor will drive each team through the Agile process from Vision to Daily planning and execution. Your instructor will answer questions with real world experience, as all instructors have Agile experience “in the trenches.”
