It is quite common for organizations that are planning to start an Agile transformation to line up some basic training for their teams in order to learn what Agile is and how they fit into this framework. This is absolutely vital. An Agile transformation cannot succeed without at least some level of introductory knowledge.
The very basis of an Agile transformation requires being open and adaptable to constant change. One introductory class at the beginning of an Agile transformation is not going to make everyone capable of maintaining that standard. That is why reputable Agile certification in Delhi/NCR offer a wide range of ongoing training and coaching options for individuals and teams at all levels of Agile experience and at all levels of the organization.
Following are some of the frequently asked questions about Agile certification:
- What is Agile? : Primarily, Agile is a way of thinking about software development and to a greater extent, solving problems and delivering value. The implementation methods include how the principles of Agile are applied in a real-world project, program or effort. The most well-known methods of implementing Agile are: Scrum, Kanban and eXtreme Programming (XP), with Scrum being the most commonly used.
- What is Agile training? : Agile training is an ideal way to level-set your organization or project team on the basis concepts of Agile and associated implementation methodologies. The training can help expose the underlying Agile concepts and clarify the differences between the various implementation methods.
- What benefits does Agile training provide? : Often when organizations describe problems with “Agile”, they are actually describing the challenges with executing an Agile methodology. Having all the project team members attend common training, ideally in the same class, can mitigate some of these issues. When an entire team hears the same message, concepts and implementation tactics simultaneously, it establishes a common language and perspective. This shared understanding strongly increases the probability of the team inspecting and adapting together using a common language and practices. This reduces the conflicts in the future. This commonality is best obtained via project teams attending the same training and the same class, if at all possible.
- How do I know if training is reputable? : Look for the organizations that offer training by a Certified Scrum Trainer, or CST. The CST certification is only given after a thorough vetting process by the primary governing body, the Scrum Alliance.
