Change is inevitable. As organizations are being challenged to handle disrupting technologies (automation, AI, machine learning, etc.), they are finding the need to adapt to new ways of working and thinking about problems. For over 70% of companies, this has meant moving to a more adaptive mindset with Agile frameworks, such as Scrum, Kanban, and Scrumban.

In this course, we will teach you everything you need to know to succeed in this evolving Agile world; values, principles, benefits, challenges, roles, user stories, sprints, ceremonies, product backlog, sprint backlog, estimation techniques, team velocity, burndown charts, burn up charts, Kanban boards, and much, much more.
