Presented by Kent McDonald, KnowledgeBridge Partners
1 PDU (Category A)
What do you mean, "What Kind of Agile?"
Agile is not a One Size Fits All solution, any more than traditional waterfall development. You might be blessed with a small team that can read each other's minds. There's an Agile for that. But maybe you have a larger project that requires a lot of domain knowledge. There's an Agile for that, too. Maybe you have a project environment that cries out for a phase-based approach. Yep, there's an agile for that.
This mini-course provides a fast introduction to four major methods collectively referred to as "Agile development": Scrum, Extreme Programming, Crystal, and Feature-Driven Development. His high-level orientation will help you understand the ins and outs of various Agile methodologies along with their strengths and weaknesses. You'll come away with a better understanding of the various Agile camps and which approaches might be most applicable to your project environment.
