About Agile Basics

What is Agile?

Agile is a hugely popular, flexible approach to managing projects that have some or all of the following features:

  • Difficult-to-define requirements
  • Likely to have changing requirements throughout
  • Require early value delivery

Although traditionally associated with project management – and utilised by thousands of project teams worldwide – Agile can also be a mindset and approach you adopt for all of your work.

Agile Basics

Understanding the basic principles of Agile and having a solid foundational knowledge of how it works can open your mind to new ways of doing things in all areas of your working life.

For example, during our 1-day Agile Foundation Course, we teach you about Agile Principles and Processes, and look at how Agile projects work.

Discovering these key concepts and acquiring tips and guidelines for how to apply them can make an instant positive impact on the way you work.

Getting Started

Getting Started Quickly with Agile

As mentioned above, our 1-day Agile Foundation Course is a fantastic way to kick-start becoming more flexible in your approach to handling projects.

It runs over 1 day (9.30am - 5.00pm) as a "live virtual classroom". Live virtual classroom means that you'll be joining real-time training, where you can interact with the trainer and other participants.

Delivered by experienced Agile trainers with plenty of real-world project management experience, this 1-day course is a great way to become familiar with agile in the most time-efficient way possible.
