**The best approach to experience working on any agile team!**

Based on lots of practice and collaboration, this course guides you through Agile fundamentals and gets you to know the Scrum framework by living it. Through learning-by-doing sessions you will get to know all that it takes to organize work through teamwork.

The best approach to experience working on any agile team!

Want to go through an entire agile delivery path? You are invited to go from your initial ideas or business needs, to building a shared vision, and planning high level product releases. Then, move on prioritizing, and working in Sprints to deliver early product increments–encouraging inspection and adaptation, among focusing the effort on features that prove to be useful with high quality standards.

This course provides you with :

-The ability to set the difference between Agile methodologies and frameworks, understanding their elements and the scope of what it means to be a part of a self-organized teamwork.

-The immersion in the Agile mindset of collaborative work, constant inspection, and plan adaptation to match the changing of contexts, enabling fast learning processes through the way.

-The Agile tools and practices to make possible the delivery of early business value, and to do it frequently.

-The experience of working in self-managed teams to deliver quality products in an iterative and incremental way.

No previous knowledge is required to attend.
