In this course, students will be introduced to The Agile Mindset and how it sets the tone for "being" Agile versus just "doing" Agile. Students will learn to leverage The Agile Manifesto as the foundation for all Agile Frameworks, identify the practical differences between Agile and Waterfall approaches, and master characteristics of three of the more popular Agile Frameworks being utilized across all industries: Scrum, Kanban and XP.
