Agile approaches have undoubtedly established themselves as a way to respond to change more quickly than traditional project approaches without sacrificing quality.

You will learn the Agile values, principles and practices in an interactive setting exploring Scrum, eXtreme Programming, Kanban and Lean Software development at a high level.
