An Agile Approach to Embedded Software Development

Contact us to bring this course to your company. Or check our training calendar for upcoming public sessions.

Agile development is designed to help a team manage delivery of a system, through iterative and incremental development. The Agile approach accepts that there are limits to our ability to plan out a complex product and then just execute the plan. Something new is being invented. There are unknowns. Any plan needs to adapt and Agile builds that in from the beginning.

This training course helps you build knowledge, understanding and skill in the planning and management practices of Agile Development.
