Full-time MBA Events for October 27-November 2, 2013

October 29 - 30

Agile Boot Camp Add to your Outlook Calendar

  • Gain knowledge and understanding of Agile principles with context on why they are so important for each team
  • Embrace planning from Vision down to Daily level, recognizing the value of continuous planning over following a plan

Agile is an art more than a science. The art of Agile must be practiced and finely tuned over multiple iterations. In this two day Agile Boot Camp you will put the knowledge, skills, tools and techniques taught to work. The classroom will be broken up into Agile teams and your expert instructor, Joe Butson, will drive each team through the Agile process from vision down to daily planning and execution through a series of team exercises.  Joe will answer questions with real-world experience from the trenches.  You will leave the class with practical knowledge and a clear roadmap for your team's success.
