Agile Problem Resolution and Quality Management

Description

There are always going to be problems in agile projects. Some will be major and some will be incredibly minor. Being able to detect, forecast, and address the problems — especially any small problems before they become big — is key to successful agile project management and practice. In this course, we concentrate on the needs and methods around the detection of problems, errors, issues, and other things deemed outside our acceptable realm of control. We also examine a few of the common tools, measurements, techniques, and other diagnostics that support the team’s efforts to detect and resolve problems within the project. 


Agile project quality is a discipline that is built in and incorporated in all that is done — from considering, to planning, to executing, to testing, to delivering, and every minute in between. Quality is a mindset and a practice throughout the agile project lifecycle. 


In this course, we concentrate on agile project quality and the role it plays in the gains or value. As we talk about the standards and the expected levels of quality of the products, we discuss the skills needed in order to measure quality. No agile project is perfect. No person on an agile team is perfect. There is always room for improvement and growth. 


This course is about the constant striving for improvement. In this course, we explore the various methods and concepts surrounding the need and ability to continually improve an agile project, ourselves, our teams, our culture, our organization, our agile project management, and other areas, whether directly or indirectly.
