This hands-on course replaces COMP 2834 and COMP 2835 and follows on from COMP 2833 – Agile Methods and the Scrum Framework in the Agile Associate Certificate. Starting with hands-on exercises and simulations, students learn to use integrated case studies for Agile Business Systems Analysis. The Scrum and Kanban frameworks in Agile are further examined and practiced. Participants then apply Agile Project Leadership styles through role-play in actual teams. The dynamics of a self-directed team from the forming and then to the continued coaching of that team are examined. Students will facilitate and prepare a Project Business Case and a Project Statement of Work (Project Charter) using an Agile Project “Liftoff” process. There is a focus on the process of decomposing User Story Epics into “slices” of functionality for each short development iteration. Developing user stories using the "just enough" approach is introduced. User Stories are mapped to an overall plan for the project using the "inspect and adapt" approach. Students practice delivering business value to clients with production ready concepts early and throughout the project. Continuous collaboration with the product owner and the self-directed Agile Project Leaders team is reinforced. Participants learn to embrace the continual flow of changing requirements as well as how to scale the agile techniques to apply Scrum to large-scale and geographically distributed projects. Upon successful completion of COMP 2836 students will be able to use Agile Analysis methods and Agile Project Leadership techniques to solve business problems and to work within the boundaries of traditional organizations.
COMP 2833 Agile Methods and the Scrum Framework must be completed prior to starting COMP 2836.
