To win in today’s competitive market requires giving your business the ability to deliver highly profitable products faster than the competition. The goal of Lean-Agile software development is the ability to add value quickly to your customers now while retaining the ability to add value quickly in the future.
Most development organizations aren’t structured to do this because they work on large projects that require long delivery cycles. In this course we teach how to drive from business and customer value to select what you work on and teach the teams how to deliver it incrementally.
This course breaks down and analyses 3 key areas of the Lean Enterprise:
- Prioritize features by highest business/end user value
- ‘Drive’ the development efforts to incrementally deliver
- Portfolio Management
- Development Teams
- Focus on speed in delivering software functionality
- Must include functionality, maintainability, and extensibility
- Requires excellent engineering practices
- Focus on the value stream (cycle time—idea to implementation)
- ‘Drive’ Continuous Standards Improvement
- Organizational guiding principles, impediment removal

This course is an alternative to standard ScrumMaster training. More and more companies are finding initial success with Scrum only to find they cannot extend it beyond a few teams. We believe the reason for this is no failing of the people attempting to use Scrum, nor even Scrum itself. Rather, the challenges that must be dealt with go beyond the capabilities of the Scrum framework to provide sufficient solutions. In other words, Scrum is not always the right process for an organization, but if that is all someone has learned no other alternatives present themselves. This course better prepares organizations for Agile development by providing a solid understanding of the principles behind Agile methods which allows you to decide which is the best team process for you - in your circumstances. This greater foundation also allows for better tailoring of whichever Agile method you chose, even Scrum
