Class Description


Effective immediately in response to COVID-19, all Technology Training classes will be delivered online until further notice.

In advance of each session, Tech Training will provide you with a Zoom link to your class, along with any required class materials.


In this module, we focus on understanding agile in its own context. Is Agile a methodology, a concept framework or a mindset?
This module is the second of a four-part series on Understanding Agile.
By looking into the various agile artifacts and ceremonies, we gain a more comprehensive understanding of what agile practice consists of.
Key concepts introduced in this session include:
  • Agile Manifesto
  • Agile Principles
  • Lean
  • Kanban
  • XP
  • MVP
  • MMF
  • Backlog grooming
  • Roadmap
  • User story



University IT Technology Training classes are only available to Stanford University staff, faculty, students and Stanford Hospitals & Clinics employees. A valid SUNet ID is needed in order to enroll in a class.
