ALTEN invites you to participate our unique 3 days training:
‘Certified Agile Hardware Practitioner (CAHP)’
‘Agile Program Management’
The Scrum framework provides effective techniques for planning, tracking and managing product-development work. While Scrum originated in the world of software product development, it is also applicable to the development of hardware products, or products that have both hardware and software components. The benefits Scrum provides for hardware development include improved visibility into the status of work and plans, flexibility to change course quickly in response to changes in business environment or internal needs, and improved collaboration within and across development teams and stakeholders. We have found that the benefits of Agile are not only achieved through software development, but by hardware as well. Or, in other words, Agile can be done in, and is valuable to, hardware development. Training possibilities on Agile Hardware are not available in the Netherlands, therefore ALTEN is proud to offer you this unique training course.
