Agile Development with SCRUM   NEW

A Development Method for Immediate and Effective Business Value


Agile development is a conceptual framework based on iterative and incremental development. Opposite to traditional development wherein requirements are detailed and only later developed, the agile method SCRUM links the genesis and fine-tuning of requirements to the parallel development of the solution.
SCRUM is based on development sprints of 2 to 4 weeks, working with autonomous teams composed by cross-functional teams. This allows to rapidly see and implement the result of every sprint and to correct any deviation immediately.
Agile methods are extremely appropriate in fast-changing environments and when requirements are difficult to formalize and to set.
This training will introduce the contextual theory with vocabulary, concepts, roles and responsibilities. The focus will then be put on case studies to provide the participants with concrete skills to manage SCRUM Sprints.
