You would have to be living under a rock to not have heard of agile these days. The label is being attached to everything – agile methodology, agile sales, agile marketing, agile testing, agile you-name-it. But what does agile mean and why is it important? The reality is that change is inevitable. Agile processes defer decisions, shorten development cycles and support just in time analysis of requests. This allows agile teams to change quickly and at low cost. That provides competitive advantage and is one of the keys to agile ways of working. Most organizations are strongly influenced by two key ideas from the early 1900’s. First is the push for efficiency promoted by Frederick Taylor in his scientific management. Second, is the use of the assembly line and specialized skillsets made famous by Henry Ford.The combination of these industrial age approaches worked great for factory work, where unskilled workers churned out huge quantities of standard parts. However, they don’t work for modern knowledge workers who work together to deliver complex and innovative solutions.

Agile methodology is one of the best choices for developers to the successful completion of project. The term agile means ability to move quickly and easily and responding and responding swiftly to change. This is the key aspect of agile software development. This methodology involves continuous planning, testing, integration and other forms of evolution of the project. Each project is broken up into several iterations in the same time duration. At the end of each iteration a working product should be delivered. This will allows the customer to interact and work with functioning software at each successful iteration and provide feedback on it. This approach allows teams to take up changes more easily and make corrections if needed. The course training will equip the participants with the knowledge and skills for the following Domains:
