Agile Training Sequence

Agile Software Qualities

This sequence of training, employing extensive use of class exercises and interactions, is intended to give individuals a clear appreciation for and understanding of the Agile approach to product development.  After individuals have practiced working in an Agile manner for some period of time, certification of the effectiveness of that practice can be achieved.  We do not believe that it is reasonable to expect a few days of training to certify anything other than attendance at that training.  This is why we believe individuals must have worked for a while employing an Agile approach before certification can be offered to them.
