Verified Scrum Foundations – Introduction to Agile & Scrum

So what is Agile?
Agile is a methodology and mindset, commonly compared to Project Management, which is used to approach complex problems. It promotes a high-performance culture that celebrates creativity, collaboration, and the intention to produce the most valuable product and/or service for customers. It delivers better products faster and cheaper. Agile is best used when operating in Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous (VUCA) environments where it is impossible to know all the variables up front, and business agility is essential to thrive. Businesses like Agility because it equips them with the mindset, culture and capability to be able to adapt and “turn on a dime, for a dime”.

Who uses Agile?
The British Army is Agile in areas. Almost every large organisation you can think of also uses the Agile approach. You yourself have probably demonstrated Agile values and practices and are likely to have more transferable skills than you think. Agile is the current leading enabling force behind the mission to transform businesses to become truly value-driven, people-orientated, 21st-century modern workplaces.

What’s in it for me?
So, Agile is, therefore, a very exciting area to consider your next career move into, with plenty of opportunities available, especially for Forces leavers that typically inherently demonstrate Agile values and principles well. This course – led by Service Leaver turned Agile Coach & Trainer John Spruce – will provide you with an overview of Agile & Scrum (the leading framework within Agile).
