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’.
