About this course

Course code TPAP2DAY
Duration 2 Days

This course employs practical exercises, case studies and discussions for Agile practitioners who want to help their organisations launch and roll out Agile ways of working. With a practical emphasis on discovering unique circumstances and needs, this course enables a tailored Agile transformation that delivers value straight away.

Unlike most certifications and training courses, which tend to focus on the 'HOW', the VFQ and Agile course and BCS Practitioner Certification in Agile ask the far more important question 'WHY'.

Prerequisites

Who should attend

This VFQ course is designed to help those wanting to apply Agile-Lean practices in their organisations. Because it covers Agile thinking and principles, VFQ works across all levels, from introductory to advanced. It addresses the challenges faced by developers, testers, analysts and executives, providing knowledge to help in day-to-day work and long-term career success.

It is suitable for all professionals, across all industries, who work on product and software development projects.

This course covers the modules needed to sit the BCS Practitioner Certificate in Agile examination. The certification is aimed at those who have, or wish to have, some responsibility for managing, participating in or enabling Agile ways of working within software development. It is recommended that candidates prepare for the examination by committing to personal study. This is regarded as a necessary minimum, but it may be supplemented with this training course and work-based learning.
