Agile and Scrum Fundamentals

The main objectives of this introductory class are to provide participants with a solid understanding of Agile and Scrum concepts, clarify prevailing misconceptions and contrast Agile with waterfall techniques.

We will detail the fundamentals of Agile principles, describe the relationship between Scrum and Agile as well as outline XP development techniques and Lean principles.

The class will conclude with an overview of the Agile value proposition for companies looking to transform to iterative development and show how Scrum scales to provide value for larger organizations.

At the end of the class, participants will:
- Understand how Scrum is a framework within an Agile project management methodology and be able to articulate the significance of each.
- Understand the fundamental differences between waterfall and Agile project management methodologies.
- Appreciate the values outlined in the Agile manifesto and understand how it applies to work done in an organization.
- Learn how to communicate the value of Scrum to an organization and "sell Scrum" to management using a focus of business value delivery.
