Course Description

Agile is not one methodology.  Agile is an umbrella heading that defines a philosophy with foundational principles to follow that help us solve the problems faced in the complexity of software development.  We will explore the core principles and introduce some of the methodologies that are based on these principles.  We will connect the ‘Why of Agile’ to the ‘What of Agile’ showing how the ‘What’ helps you accomplish the ‘Why’. We will discuss the impact of Agile on an organization.  We will introduce the pre-project discovery steps that lead up to investing budget in an Agile project.  We will discuss the path to Agile Adoption within the organization.

With Agile for Executives class we are looking for Agility to be built into our educational approach.  We will focus on meeting the needs of the group of executives and leaders taking the class.  The base material of this class could be covered in as little as ½ day but ASPE has a wide curriculum covering many aspects of Agile.  Within the standard 1-day allocated for this class, other Agile topics can be explored according the needs and desires of the participants.  Your Agile instructor will have deep knowledge of the subject and be able to go down paths of interest as determined by the class participants or determined prior to the class running.
