Course Description

“Agile” is widely being used today in software development and project management. But what does it really mean to be “Agile”? And are businesses truly following the Agile principles? This course is intended for anyone responsible for delivering critical IT projects and need to fully understand Agile.


The course will start off with an explanation of the difference between the traditional Waterfall method and Agile. Various Agile methodologies will be described, with support for and against using each of these methods. Examples will be given of how each method is truly used in real world IT projects.
