Business agility is best defined as the capacity and willingness of an organisation to adapt to, create, and leverage change for their customer’s benefit. Being agile is not about implementing a specific process or framework - it is about changing the mindset of the business to become more customer centric, more nimble in decision making, and more adaptive to the constant changes of the business environment.
This requires practitioners to develop a new set of skills and a particular view of the world that will enable them to add value and become more productive in what they do - regardless of the job title.
This course will enable you to:
Understand the anatomy of an agile business
Understand how to structure an agile team to deliver an individual project or initiative
Become familiar with the concepts of Scrum (probably the most popular framework for running agile projects)
Understand what is involved in scaling agile to the whole enterprise
Become ready to work in an agile environment as a practitioner or start a consulting journey
Try your knowledge against a sample set of Scrum Master certification exam questions.
