What You'll Get

Agile and Scrum: Dramatically Improving Software Delivery

In this Agile Immersion, you’ll learn Agile and Scrum principles, tools, practices and patterns through practical exercises, reinforced with real-world examples, and buttressed by structuring the class itself as an agile learning project. This full-day workshop will enable you to understand, leverage and incorporate Agile to make your products more profitable, your efforts more productive, and your teams more joyful.

Agile and Scrum techniques have become so mainstream that even teams still doing Waterfall are weaving in selected agile practices. Studies reveal that teams overwhelmingly find Scrum and Agile the path to more profitable products. Agile is a mindset and Scrum a framework that can lead to highly disciplined team-driven software delivery.

Organizations that try Scrum without understanding the nuances of its practices, principles, cadence, and patterns too often see limited results. It turns out that nuances count. Meanwhile, individuals who learn to use agile practices effectively - and especially individuals who embrace an agile mindset - find themselves eminently more employable in Agile's rising tide.

Whether you're working in IT or products, mobile or Big Data, Agile and Scrum, executed effectively, can make your team more productive - and happier. Companies, teams and individuals who learn to think and work agilely can maximize the potential for their products, their organizations and themselves.
