Being responsive to change is a must to survive in the modern business environment. The Waterfall model used in many traditional organisations cannot keep up, leading to missed deadlines and lower chance of project success. The Agile approach, on the other hand, is well known for its flexibility as well as its incremental and interative approach. Agile skills are vital for any project manager wishing to be able to keep up with modern project management.

Our Agile Training is inspired by successful agile business environments and provides two globally recognised Agile certifications: AgilePM® Foundation and AgilePM® Practitioner.

Agile

What is Agile?

The Agile framework applies iterative and incremental methods throughout the project management lifecycle to be more responsive to change and to create outcomes which are more aligned with customer requirements. Teams are allowed to be more empowered and creative. The Agile framework can be diagrammatically represented as:

Which Agile methodology is best used in the industry?

Agile is executed in work environments using various methods. DSDM is one of the best approaches. DSDM stands for Dynamic Systems Development Method. DSDM was introduced in 1994 to deliver the industry standard project delivery structure. The main objective of DSDM is fast project execution. DSDM delivers the base to plan, manage, execute, and scale Agile processes.

The DSDM is based on nine principles that rotate around business values, rapid delivery, combined testing, and stakeholder collaboration. DSDM is considered suitable for business purpose, because 80% of systems can be organised in 20% of the time.

The requirement analysis is done at an earlier stage in the project. The development processes are made rescindable. The requirements are planned based on MoSCoW methods, which are:

  • M: must have requests
  • S: should have if all are possible
  • C: could have but not the critical ones
  • W: will not have now but may arise later

The critical work is made complete first. The lowest priority supplies are made out of implementation processes so the high priority requirements can be finished.

Business Agility:

Businesses need to rapidly respond to changes by familiarising the initial stable configuration. The business agility can be conserved by supporting and refining services and goods to accomplish customer demands. Agility is the capability to adjust to market and environments in an organisation, as agile provides complex adaptive systems and complexity science.

The difference between the Agile and Waterfall model:

  • In the waterfall model, the software process is divided into phases whereas the Agile methods divide the development of projects into sprints.
  • The waterfall model is fairly rigid whereas the Agile methodology is known for it's flexibility.

About Coventry

Coventry is a metropolitan area in the West Midlands, England. Historically part of Warwickshire, Coventry is the 9th largest city in England and the 12th largest in the United Kingdom. It is the second largest city in the West Midlands region, after Birmingham, with a populace of 345,385 in 2015. Coventry is 95 much north-west of central London, 19 miles east-south-east of Birmingham, 24 miles south-west of Leicester and 11 miles north of Warwick. Coventry Cathedral was constructed after the annihilation of the 14th-century cathedral church of Saint Michael by the German Luftwaffe in the Coventry Blitz of 14 November 1940. Coventry motor companies have donated meaningfully to the British motor industry. The city has two universities, Coventry University in the City Centre and the University of Warwick on the southern outskirts.

Areas of Interest:

Cathedral:

St. Michael's Church is Coventry's best-known landmark and visitor place. The 14th-century church was hugely demolished by German bombing during the Second World War, part only the outer walls and spire. At 300 feet above, the spire of St. Michael's is appealed to be the third tallest church spire in England, after Salisbury and Norwich. Due to the architectural design, it lived the destruction of the rest of the cathedral. The new Coventry Cathedral was opened in 1962 next to the ruins of the old. It was reproduced by Sir Basil Spence. The cathedral covers the tapestry Christ in Glory by Graham Sutherland.

Cultural Institution:

The Herbert Art Gallery and Museum is one of the largest cultural organisations in Coventry. Another visitor attraction in the City Centre is the Coventry Transport Museum, which has the main group of British-made road vehicles in the world. The museum established a refurbishment in 2004 which comprised the creation of a new arrival as part of the city's Phoenix Initiative project. It was a finalist for the 2005 Gulbenkian Prize. About four miles from the City Centre and just outside Coventry in Baginton is the Lunt Fort, a reconstructed Roman fort on its original site. The Midland Air Museum is located just within the border of Coventry on land head-to-head to Coventry Airport and near Baginton.

Red Major Improvements endure renewing the City Centre. The Phoenix Initiative, which was deliberated by MJP Architects, stretched the final shortlist for the 2004 RIBA Stirling Prize and has now gained a total of 16 separate awards. It was available in the book ‘Phoenix: Architecture/Art/Regeneration' in 2004. Further major developments are potentially afoot, chiefly the Swanswell Project, which is envisioned to deepen Swanswell Pool and link it to Coventry Canal Basin, joined with the creation of an urban marina and a wide Parisian-style avenue. A possible second phase of the Phoenix Inventiveness is also in the offing, though both of these plans are still on the drawing-board. On 16 December 2007, IKEA's first city-centre store in the UK was opened, in Coventry.
