Skill Level Beginner
- An Agile project has less upfront planning. When you start an Agile project, you don't know what the completed product will look like. You start with a general notion of where you're going and you make frequent improvements on how to get there. Agile is adaptive, not predictive. Much of the energy comes from new ideas and changes. This course if part of Lynda's Agile at Work series, Driving Productive Agile Meetings. In this course we'll take a deeper dive into some of the Agile ceremonies.
