It is easy to understand why a project team or organisation would choose to use Agile and Scrum to execute their project, but there are pros and cons of using the approach which need to be fully understood, as it is one thing to see and an entirely different thing to do.

This course is intended for all members of the project team and is designed to teach delegates how to implement Agile and Scrum into their projects now. By reviewing real-world examples and techniques that dozens of teams from organisations of all sizes have used, every step of the Agile project lifecycle is covered and adapted to a sample project or a delegate's current project.

This is an interactive course that will provide the knowledge and skills to use these powerful methods, taken from actual examples, best practices, tips and tricks used by Fortune 500 companies in the successful implementation of Agile and Scrum.
