The Innovation Module provides an introduction to Agile Project Planning.
Agile’s emergence as a huge global movement extending beyond software, is driven by the discovery that the only way for organisations to cope with today’s turbulent customer-driven marketplace is to become Agile. Agile enables organisations to master continuous change. It permits firms to flourish in a world that is increasingly volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous.
Based on these thoughts, we will analyse the emergence of the agile movement, the distinctions among Agile values, principles, and practices, explore key aspects of value-driven development, adaptive planning techniques, and how to cultivate collaboration with customers, within organisations and within teams.
The module will focus on two particular areas of the Agile discipline: SCRUM and KANBAN. Through workshop exercises and a capstone Lego4Scrum simulation, participants will develop their agile skills.
Those who complete the module will have proven that they are capable of joining a scrum team in the future as an inexperienced but capable new team member.
