This BCS Foundation Certificate in Agile leaves delegates more confident in five key areas:
- The rationale and benefits of agile ways of working.
- The agile manifesto and applying agile principles to real work.
- The methods and approaches used by agile teams.
- Agile roles and how they work together.
- Agile techniques and practices.
Audience, pre-requisites and assumed knowledge
As an agile certification foundation-level course there is no assumed knowledge, and it works well with mixed classes of software developers and the business stakeholders that they might interact with. Typical attendees include:
- Traditional engineering teams of software engineers, analysts and testers, who are planning to start using agile ways of working.
- Established teams that are keen to review their working practices and improve their approach.
- Project managers seeking to adapt to agile roles such as scrum master or product owner.
- Established or prospective product owners and product managers.
- Stakeholders or users of products who need a good working relationship with agile teams.
Delivered as a private class, the course is pitched at an appropriate level. For example, experienced teams can quickly re-establish the basics and then spend more time considering the detail of their approach.
Private team training
The Agility in Mind Approach
We are a friendly team of practitioners and we like to provide a personal level of support, before, during and after the class:
- Pre-course reading designed exposes questions and explored in class.
- Contact details allowing delegates to ask questions to the trainer before and after the class.
- Access to a comprehensive set of guidance after the course so that delegates apply what they’ve learnt.
- Digital course effectiveness surveys with results sent out to delegates and sponsors straight after the class.
