In this powerful one-day course, you'll grasp the concepts, principles, and structure of Agile development and become empowered to execute on your plans for incorporating Agile techniques into your organization. To incorporate an Agile methodology or practice into your SDLC with an expectation of shredding the rigid discipline of your current method is a sure path to failure. The common misconception is that Agility means lack of order, which is not the case. Agility in software requires strong discipline. In order to successfully implement Agility, you must have a solid foundation in the practices and procedures you wish to adapt and learn how to follow those practices correctly while tying them to rigid quality goals.
