Agile technology has shown very high potential and is becoming more common place, but questions continue to be unanswered. Agile development requires more than changes to programming techniques, the entire project team needs to change their approaches and methodologies to attain success in Agile development. In this interactive workshop, students participate in a series of simulations, learning to adopt an agile mindset and employ Agile methodologies throughout the life of a development project. Students will also discuss Agile concepts, leading Agile methodologies, forming teams, and best-practices and techniques. This course is designed to engage all team members (Business and Technical Analysts, Project and Product Managers, Developers, Testers and Quality Assurance) in the Agile processes and define the roles involved in Agile development. Interactive team exercises follow discussions throughout this class allowing students to practice the techniques they learn.
Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP)® Review/Test Prep
The PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP)® formally recognizes your knowledge of agile principles and your skill with agile techniques. It demonstrates that you are ready to lead in the age of product development, management and delivery. It is recognized as the fastest growing certificate from PMI® and statistics show that agile organizations are able to complete more projects successfully.
This course is designed to prepare for your PMI Agile Certified Practitioner exam while learning to lead Agile software projects. The PMI-ACP includes many approaches to agile such as Scrum, Kanban, Lean, extreme programming (XP) and test-driven development (TDD.) So students will find this helpful in preparing for the PMI-ACP® certification examination or in the solidification of their knowledge and understanding of the Agile processes. Topics include the application and testing process for PMI-ACP® as well as key test topics, such as the Agile Principles and Mindset, Value-Driven Delivery, Stakeholder Engagement, Team Performance, Adaptive Planning, Problem Detection and Resolution and Continuous Improvement.
