Scrum is a popular Agile framework for completing complex projects. Scrum was originally formalised for software development projects, but it works well for any complex, innovative scope of work. Scrum allows businesses to change priorities and requirements quickly. It promotes transparency and ensures decisions are made by the relevant teams within the organisation.
Agile Business Analyst
Being an Agile Business Analyst in an agile team means business requirements are captured and a working solution delivered in small chunks. Agile development provides a great way of adapting to changes in the business environment, better aligns the requirements to changing circumstances and utilises proven agile methodology. Enable discovery, insights & innovation. From first steps, to Data Analyst, to Data Scientist.
Agile Project Management
To stay effective, businesses need to be able to change quickly. However, traditional project management methodologies will try to fully understand the reasons for change before the change can be enabled; in the real world, this approach can be too time-consuming. Agile Project Management offers a set of frameworks that covers the people, products and practices (techniques) required to successfully implement projects in the modern business environment. We offer a range of courses so that different stakeholders within a project can fully understand exactly how to work within an Agile environment.
Agile for Software Development
Agile provides organisations with a leaner, more structured approach to software development. It enables them to respond far more quickly to change and provides a way to implement high-priority initiatives. The cross-functional Agile team includes all the roles to design, develop, test and deploy regular releases of the product and an agile approach ensures regular feedback from the business user, creating a dynamic environment in which great things can happen.
For Agile to thrive in an organisation, practitioners from all job families must adopt the Agile mindset
