Course Objective: The past decade has seen a transformation in the way that
information products and services are built with the shift to agile
development methodologies. Agile approaches advocate incremental
development driven by cross-functional, self-directed teams. Unlike more
traditional waterfall methodologies, Agile allows teams to learn and adapt
their approach along the way, validating that what they are building
actually meets user needs. However, adopting agile does not mean doing away
with planning all together and scaling agile to larger projects can be a
challenge. Discipline and good practices are still required to ensure that
resources are used wisely and overall project goals are met.

This training course is aimed at early- to mid-career professionals
developing information products and services in the publishing, library
technology and scholarly communications communities. Whether developing
free, open-source services for the community or more traditional paid-for
services, attendees will hear about key aspects of agile product
development and project management for seasoned practitioners who have
gained hard-won experience about what works and what doesn’t.

By the end of the course, attendees will have a good understanding of:


   The stages of agile product development

   Techniques for planning, managing and tracking agile projects

   The distinct roles that make up an agile team

   The key behaviors and processes which are important for success
