Agile methods have been in use for 25 years now. The last 10 years have seen adoption accelerate and spread across sectors. Software development teams were the innovators and early adopters, but the value that Agile offers has been seized in areas as varied as medical robotics, agricultural equipment, marketing, cosmetics, mining vehicles and fashion retailing to name but a few.

The adoption continues. Agile is such an important tool that companies need to understand it even when it is their customers or suppliers making use of it because it impacts the supply chain. Agile is about flexibility, being able to adapt and respond to changing needs.

This course is about understanding Agile culture, Agile systems and Agile tools.

This Developing Agile Teams course allows your company to assess your structures and create simple, results-focused procedures that are evidence based.
