Making Agile Development work in your organization
Telerik & e-Zest Solutions Ltd. invites you for Two Free Seminars:
The Agile methodology has been adopted by many organizations around the globe. Unfortunately, many still struggle with the various methodologies (XP, Scrum, Kanban etc), and can’t settle on just one. While some organizations are successful in implementing Agile with the development teams, they tend to forget other vital parts of the process, mainly testing.
A session on how to choose which Agile methodology (or how to mix and match several pieces) to implement in your organization and how to do it.
