Course Title
Agile Software Development Practices

Agile development is all about succeeding in our efforts with the help of short, meaningful feedback loops. If we're not succeeding, then we ought to change our practices. If we are succeeding, then we should not care what to call it. The goal is not to be agile, but to succeed. With that thought in mind, what set of practices, when done correctly, can help us improve the chances of success and lower the chances of failures? That's the question this course will answer. This course takes a highly practical and result driven approach to being agile. It will present the major impediments, things we have to deeply introspect and change. It will discuss why adaptive planning is highly essential and how to get the team to working in that mode. It has a good mixture of technical and non-technical details to help adapt, succeed and sustain agile development.
