Course Overview
Hi, everyone. My name is John La Plante, and welcome to my course, Serving in Agile Teams. I'm a Director of Product at Aleph Beta. Agile has all been taken over modern software development. And with the 2017 study indicating a 28% increase in successful delivery when using an Agile methodology, that makes a lot of sense. With more than 50 Agile frameworks and methodologies to choose from, where do you begin? In this course, we're going to look at the most popular Agile frameworks, Scrum and Kanban. We'll look at the similarities and the differences and talk about the cases where one might provide advantages over the other. We'll look at Agile team roles, what a backlog is and how to use it, sprints and the power of timeboxing, the when, how, and why of Agile meetings. By the end of this course, you'll understand how Agile teams work and, more importantly, why. While there are no prerequisites for this course, a basic understanding of agility will be beneficial. From here, you should feel comfortable diving into Agile product delivery with courses on Scrum and Kanban. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn about Agile teams and how they deliver with my Serving in Agile Teams course at Pluralsight.
