Becoming Agile

What is your best option concerning the Agile Methods?

Make your software development projects more agile!

The Agile software development methods are designed to make software development quicker, more responsive to the customer's needs, and resilient in the face of change. They are based on the unique philosophy that success in software projects is not dependent upon exhaustive planning, fully documented requirements and rigorous change control. They present a new way to think about software projects that results in projects that look quite different from traditional projects.

This course will help you to understand how you might be able to capitalize on the practices of the various Agile Methods to build your own agile process. Each student will receive a copy of the book Agile Software Development: Evaluating the Methods For Your Organization (2005, Artech House Books) and the Excel workbook that supports the book.
