The course in relation to Lean, Scrum, XP, Atern and more:
The course covers:
All of Scrum, even in some detail. This is because Scrum is the smallest and simplest of all agile approaches – this is the beauty – and risk - of Scrum.
All major principles from Lean such as value streams, the importance of keeping your options open and more.
All key aspects of DSDM Atern and in-depth the most beneficial practices. DSDM is the largest of the agile approaches, and if we pick the best from it we will benefit greatly with little added work.
From XP: How the team works, core development practices, XP project management perspective, user stories and some more. No detailed programming techniques, however.
Practical experiences and learning points of the above – what to do and what do avoid.
