This AMS course provides a deep insight to the skills, tools, and techniques associated with Agile Development Best Practices, and can be used as part of a progressive curricular, standalone learning experience, or team up-skilling initiative. Agile Development Best Practices are a key skill in today’s progressive organizations. This course is designed to provide participants with a solid understanding of what agile is, and some of the best practices surrounding an agile project. After discussing the foundations of Agile and Scrum the course takes a deeper look at requirements elicitation and management. This includes close examination of the Scrum Product Owner role and how Product Managers and Business Analysts fill this role. An emphasis will be placed on understanding the key agile principles and why they are important. Participants will not only understand “why” agile works, but “how” to use it on a project, including release planning, iteration planning, daily stand-up meetings, user stories, and project management. Participants will enhance their experience by interacting with imbedded scenarios, participating in table exercises, building a personal action plan, and sharing with their peers.
