An Agile process recognizes the level of uncertainty in a project and requires a very different way of doing both planning and requirements definition in an uncertain and rapidly-changing environment. That’s exactly what this course is all about.
Instead of attempting to develop a detailed plan for a project based on well-defined requirements prior to the start of the project, an Agile approach recognizes the level of uncertainty. In this course, Understanding Adaptive Planning and Agile Requirements Definition Practices, you will learn how to use a very different planning approach that is based on further refining both the plan and details of requirements as the project progresses. First, you will explore an adaptive planning approach that is based on the level of uncertainty in the project. Next, you'll discover how to progressively define requirements in an uncertain environment as the project progresses. Finally, you'll experience a radical shift in thinking compared to the traditional, plan-driven approach that many people are used to. When you're finished with this course, you will have a good foundation of knowledge to take a leadership role in an Agile project.

That approach just doesn't work well in an uncertain and rapidly changing environment that requires a different approach for doing planning and requirements. Definition.
