Agile methodologies are widely used in product management and are designed to help teams be more flexible and responsive to changing requirements. Scrum and Kanban are two popular Agile frameworks that you may learn about in your third lesson.
Scrum is a framework for managing and completing complex projects. It involves breaking down the work into small, manageable pieces, called sprints, and completing them in a timeboxed manner. Scrum teams work in short iterations, typically two to four weeks, and hold daily stand-up meetings to track progress and identify any obstacles.
Kanban is another Agile framework that is focused on visualizing and managing work. It involves using a board with columns to represent different stages of the workflow, and moving cards or sticky notes between the columns to show progress. Kanban teams focus on limiting work in progress and improving flow by identifying and eliminating bottlenecks.
In your third lesson, you can expect to learn about the key principles and practices of Scrum and Kanban, including:
