Why study this course

This two-day course provides the essential knowledge needed by IT professionals in Agile methodologies and Scrum practices. It focuses on the fundamental principles and concepts of both Agile and Scrum. This course will prepare you for the exam leading to the Agile Scrum Essentials certification.

To stay competitive today, more than ever, businesses must be flexible, keep costs low, and delivery cycles short. Companies which have successfully adopted Agile Scrum processes have reaped the benefits of decreased costs, reduced risk, and the encouragement of innovation within the organisation. Agile offers a flexible, iterative project-management style that promotes continuous improvement and increased product quality. Scrum, which is a lightweight framework and the most popular Agile methodology, provides guidelines and other tools to help teams structure and manage their work. Together, these processes ensure the effective and efficient management of projects.

This course has been designed from the ground up, based on customer feedback, to provide you with everything you need to start applying the Agile Scrum approach to your projects.

The exam is included on the last day.
