The Agile Launchpad is a university course that introduces the Agile project management approach which we call the Agile Way of Working. The key objectives of the Agile Way of Working are to help teams to consistently deliver value (working products) that meets the needs of a customer while mitigating risk. Since its introduction in the software industry, Agile has grown beyond software development and is used in virtually every area of business.
The Agile Launchpad course aims to start undergraduate students on their agile journey by introducing the Agile Way of Working. What is an agile journey, you ask? Agile is a term for a set of values, principles, and practices that have been shown to help teams to deliver products better, faster, and cheaper. Learning the Agile Way of Working is a journey of continuous learning, improving, and adapting that only begins with the Agile Launchpad course. Through course work and practical projects students learn and apply the values, principles, and practices of agile while working in a multi-disciplinary team made up of engineering, computing, business and other majors.
Agile professionals from local and global business partners participate in the course to give students practical advice and guidance.
Completion of the Agile Launchpad course results in professional certification from ICAgile.
