Agile Training

While not a silver bullet, Agile project management methods can yield faster time-to-market, lower project costs, and reduced product defects. This is why, according to a recent study, 69% of companies are adopting Agile in some form. To assist managers and practitioners in their quest to incorporate this powerful approach into their projects, ESI has released a new Agile training curriculum focused on building practical skills and competencies in this discipline.
