Agile for Waterfall and Operational Work
Where: Over the Web
Description: Do you wonder if Agile can be used in waterfall projects or operational work? Did you know that several Agile practices can be used in any environment, in addition to software development? You may be amazed that by using Agile practices you can not only solve business problems and increase efficiency, but also build capability to respond to changes happening within and outside the organization and thus improve your agility.
Despite its beginnings in software development, in reality, Agile is industry-agnostic. It can be used in any industry including healthcare, manufacturing, supply chain, travel, education and more. Irrespective of whether you are working on projects or are involved in operations, you can benefit from Agile practices in both scenarios. If implemented correctly, a few Agile practices can help you increase your project and operational efficiency by 15-40% in just 4-8 weeks.
In this course, attendees will learn multiple Agile practices such as backlog management, daily standups, retrospectives, visualizing work using Kanban boards, limiting work in progress, and more.
