Successful Agile for Digital Teams

BIMA and Somo via FutureLearn


Get the know-how on Agile, one of the vital skills of the digital world

This course provides a unique look at the Agile approach to software development. It explains how the iterative way of working, continuously learning as you progress, is the best way to deliver useful, valuable results.

Agile is widely adopted in digital teams, but it often fails to deliver on its promise due to poor implementation. Throughout this course, you’ll explore how it works in real life, not just as a mechanical process.

Explore the principles, practices and benefits of Agile

You’ll get an in-depth understanding of how Agile works day-to-day, and will learn its many benefits, including responsiveness to change, higher customer satisfaction and better quality outputs. You’ll discover how it focuses on practical value creation, underpinned by simple but powerful core values. You’ll also compare the Scrum Master and Product Owner roles and explore the distinctive ways they make a difference.

Identify and discuss some of the typical challenges of Agile

You’ll learn how Agile processes and techniques work in a variety of different situations, before assessing some of the typical challenges that are often found within teams, such as difficulties with stakeholder buy-in and organisational culture. You’ll explore how these can be addressed by coming back to the fundamental purpose of Agile and developing an effective overall mindset.

Learn from the digital experts at Somo

The team at Somo has a deep and broad understanding of practical Agile software development, experienced in projects across many industry sectors, and working with organisations from startups to the largest corporations.

You’ll be guided throughout this course by experts in the know, and will get a wealth of information and implementable skills with regards to Agile.

This course is primarily intended for people with little practical knowledge of Agile who need to take on one of the non-engineering roles in an Agile digital team.

It will also be useful for people who have done an Agile certification but who want to balance it with a more real-life perspective, and for business leaders who need an awareness of what Agile is all about.
