Team # 3: Fall Semester 2014

 

Below you will see some of the experiences that the Agile/Scrum Course delivers to the students.

The classes are focused on team collaboration with each team “experiencing” all the principles that have been presented by the “Agile Manifesto” delivered by the Agile Alliance. The key Agile Management Framework, SCRUM, is used for this course, with each technique fully experienced by each team member through simulation and role play. The course is very focused, intense and “fun.”

The Agile training industry has determined that “Agility” in Product Development, with our product focus on the development of a Software Product,, is not something to be learned from a book or video. It must be experienced by the practitioner if they wish to achieve a full understanding of the principles laid out in the Agile Manifesto. That is the mandate of our course and the 2 Agile follow-on courses.

A key point to elaborate on here is that our Information Technology industry has created a major misconception among so many of it’s practitioners. And that misconception is this; “Software Development is all about programming.” Absolutely NOT!!

In actuality, Programming is only one phase of the 8 phase Systems Development Life Cycle (SDLC). The roles that must play key “parts” in the Life Cycle go all the way from the Business Representative, the Senior I.T. Management Representative, the Business Analyst, to the Implementation Team. All these roles are responsible for the Installation of the product. These roles and all roles in between are essential in the Software Development Process and are included in the “Agile Software Development Process.” And, as such, all of the individuals involved, absolutely require knowledge of “Agile” in the product development process.

This course is built for all these roles and must be experienced by each practitioner if we are to see Success in our industry.
