Overview

Organizations around the world are adopting Agile practices to deliver faster, more predictably, and with high levels of sustained quality. Bringing Agility to life, however, can be challenging for Infrastructure, Security, and Operations groups, as they are asked to balance a wide range of mission critical planned and unplanned work on any given day. Enabling Agility across these groups is critical as organizations work to streamline and align end-to-end practices and accelerate delivery. This course will provide an overview of applied Agile best practices for Infra, Security, and Operations groups and is focused on enabling them to: Visualize their work, dynamically (re)prioritize requests, deliver more predictably and with increased quality, and accelerate value delivery to the internal and external customers they support.
