Excellent and thoughtful introduction to Agile that focuses on the how and why (and also when not to). Really made me think about what Agile is from the cooperate culture side and not just from the production side of things. Another course I had taken spent lots of time on just the scrums and sprints, this one touches lots more from small shop to enterprise. Highly recommend if you are just getting into Agile or need a reboot.
