Course Description

Teams within your organization have been experimenting with agile techniques such as Scrum, continuous integration (CI), and agile testing and have shown promising results. But, you have significant reservations about this new development strategy.

  • How does modeling and documentation fit it?
  • How do you ensure your organization’s long-term goals are still being addressed?
  • How does this approach scale to large teams, to distributed teams, or to regulatory environments?
  • How do you govern these agile teams effectively?

In this workshop you learn how to go beyond Scrum to take a disciplined agile approach to solution delivery that provides a foundation from which to scale. To help cut through some of the agile rhetoric, industry statistics will be discussed throughout this workshop.
