Minneapolis, MN -- Agile processes have joined the mainstream of software development approaches according to a Forrester Research report released last month.  In response, Watermark Learning has created a new three day course which provides a solid foundation in agile methods. 

Developed for all project team members, including Business Analysts, Project Managers, Software Testers and Developers, Agile Fundamentals builds the students’ knowledge and skills in the agile approach to defining, estimating, and prioritizing requirements, as well as in planning releases and iterations. Using Scrum as a reference, attendees learn how to build a Product Backlog, estimate sprints, write user stories, use burndown charts, and complete reviews and retrospectives.

Co-Principal and CEO of Watermark Learning, Elizabeth Larson, CBAP, PMP, says, “With more and more of our clients adopting agile methods, we felt it was important to respond to their needs with a hands-on, comprehensive course that offered practical and realistic case studies.”

An awareness of Agile and Business Analysis methods is helpful but not required for this class. This course can also be taught on-site for a project team.
