This Systems Development Essentials training course is concerned with the fundamental skills of systems development in an Agile environment. It focuses on systems investigation and quality assurance as these underpin all successful system development work.

The Systems Development Essentials with Agile course also introduces the candidate to how the systems development effort could be organised. The course distinguishes between generic lifecycle types, methods and approaches.

Whilst exploring the fundamental differences between object-oriented and structured systems development, the course also focuses on the basic principles of agile systems development and it recognises how a commitment to software package implementation changes the structure of the systems development approach.

Combined with Systems Modelling Techniques with UML this course provides delegates with a complete introduction to systems analysis and development.

Systems Development Essentials with Agile courses are delivered by trainers who bring their substantial experience of practical systems analysis projects to the programme. A comprehensive manual, containing detailed information about systems development techniques and providing references for further reading, is supplied as part of the course.
