Course Overview

This Agile Fundamentals self-paced online course (SPOC) helps you understand what Agile is, why it is important, and how the most popular frameworks and approaches work.

We will cover Design Thinking (getting to Problem-Solution-Fit), Scrum (implementing ideas with frequent customer feedback), and Kanban (creating flow into your system) and show you how all three are connected.

What you’ll get from this course

Agile means many things to many people. For us, Agile is Empiricism i.e. the quest to reduce uncertainty in a systematic and frequent way. Every product team faces uncertainty with regards to their customer needs, the solution, and its implementation incl. how to collaborate as a group.

After this course, you will know when and how to apply Design Thinking in order to identify better ideas i.e. get to Problem-Solution-Fit. You will also understand how Scrum helps you to be Agile through a systematic approach. Finally, you will learn about the importance of flow and how Kanban can help you skyrocket productivity without huge organizational changes.
