In order to succeed with agile approaches, teams and organizations should focus first on “being agile” as a foundation for success in “doing agile.” Agile Fundamentals delves into key concepts such as adaptive planning, value-driven development, team collaboration and frequent feedback for continuous improvement. They also cover the history of the agile movement, the Agile Manifesto, the Agile Principles, and some widely applied frameworks and practices. Course participants come away with a solid understanding of core concepts as they prepare to embark on their agile journey.
The class focuses on the Agile mindset, values, principles and foundational concepts. They are grounded in what it means to “be agile while doing agile” and achieve organizational agility without specific focus on any single agile methodology or framework (e.g. Scrum, kanban, XP, DSDM, SAFe, etc.)
Course participants will understand the history of the agile movement, the distinctions among Agile values, principles, and practices, key aspects of value-driven development, adaptive planning techniques, and how to cultivate collaboration with customers, within organizations and within teams. Participants will also have gained the vocabulary to discuss the benefits of agile approaches and how to avoid common pitfalls with fellow agile practitioners. In addition, participants will gain understanding of the value of continuous feedback, learning, and adaptation for products, processes, teams, and organizations.
St Mary’s University, in collaboration with Scaled Agile Gold Partner and ICAgile affiliate Appddiction Studio, are committed to providing educational continuity to all professional learners seeking the Agile mindset. To affirm this commitment, we are excited to announce our portfolio of SAFe® and ICAgile courses will now be offered, for the first time, in an online modality. Courses are delivered in collaboration with the University of Texas at San Antonio, are live-online and provide the same transformative content as face-to-face instruction.
