Introduction

The objective of the course is for attendees to learn and apply the techniques needed to work effectively on an agile team. They will practice approaching a project using the terminology, principles, techniques, and foundational concepts from the most popular Agile Frameworks: Scrum and Kanban Method, within the Lean-Agile philosophy. At a higher level, this course impresses upon students what Agile really is: a mindset, not a methodology.
