Agile Expert (Scrum Master/PMI-ACP)

Overview

Approved By LWIA: 7
Last Re-Certification Date: 9/25/2018
Next Re-Certification Date: 9/25/2020

Program Description

The mindful use of Agile software development practices, for both project management (e.g., Scrum) and technical work (e.g., XP), empower teams to produce superior results in terms of software quality and team productivity, compared to non-Agile methods. Improvements on the order of 2x-4x or more can be achieved. This translates into cost savings as well as improved customer satisfaction. Also, teams and individuals enjoy and prefer the Agile work environment over non-Agile, once they learn and adapt to it. The Agile Expert™ training from eConsulting-Group™ is based on real-world, hands-on experience of what works (and doesn't work) in applying Agile practices to achieve these gains. Many of these practices and the underlying principles belong to the class called Lean Software Development (which is nearly synonymous with Agile Software Development), which has roots in Lean Six Sigma, Project Management, Scrum, Scaled Agile, etc. Lean-Six Sigma is another trend. These connections suggests that the Agile principles and practices are applicable beyond software development to other types of projects and to general management. 3Agile Management4 is an emerging trend.
