About this Course

In order for organizations to succeed now and in the future, teams and organizations should focus first on “being agile” as a foundation for success in “doing agile.”

ETI’s fundamentals learning outcomes delve into key concepts such as adaptive planning, value-driven development, team collaboration and frequent feedback for continuous improvement. They also cover the history of the agile movement, the Agile Manifesto, the Agile Principles, and some widely applied frameworks and practices. Course participants come away with a solid understanding of core concepts as they prepare to embark on their agile journey.

In ETI’s Agile Fundamentals course, learning will occur by working through hands-on case studies rather than lectures.
