Certificate Program in Agile Development with Scrum

The use of Agile as an approach to managing projects has increased dramatically over the last several years. Project Management Institute's (PMI) research has shown that the use of Agile practices has tripled since 2008 and the demonstrated benefits associated with Agile Development can lead to a decrease in product defects, improved team productivity, and increased delivery of business value.

This five-day Certificate Program provides a solid knowledge of the core concepts of Agile and Scrum methods, and how these concepts can be applied in any organization.

Today’s business environment is fast moving and constantly changing in order to keep up with competitors, new technology and customer demands. Agile is an iterative and incremental approach where requirements and solutions evolve through collaboration between self-organizing and cross-functional teams.

Through hands-on group exercises, participants will experience what it means to be agile while gaining an appreciation for key techniques. The course is designed for high knowledge retention and to keep attendees fully engaged throughout.

This program is appropriate for any organizational role and is geared towards anyone who is new to Agile and Scrum or hasn’t received any formal training and is looking for a better understanding to apply in their organization. No prior knowledge is required, though the scrum guide is suggested pre-reading.
