The Agile Summary!
It is truly inspiring, straightforward and easy to follow also for someone who doesn't have any knowledge of it. It provides useful sources, direct experiences and helps you to discern from who say to be agile but is not and who say to be agile and it is. I recommend this course to anyone who wants to understand why Agile philosophy in some contexts can generate great value in product development by reducing cost and risk of failure.
This course is very informative and on target. I thoroughly understood what is agile. Looking forward for the next course from Ed. Thank you
