Course description

Starting with agile is easy, but doing agile right is hard. There are so many small and big changes required to your way of working that at some point in time, the "Why"-questions are raised.

Why do we have to use story points? Why should we go for small user stories? Why should we use agile after all? In this course, we'll tackle of few of these agile dilemmas.
