Agile Development in Practice (Project-centered Course)

This course is a part of Agile Development, a 5-course Specialization series from Coursera.

This project-centered course provides a guided opportunity for you to practice your agile development skills. Using the venture design process that frames the four courses in this Specialization, you will apply agile processes to a project of your choice or to a provided venture concept. From persona, problem scenario, and user story development to designing user testing and product launch, you’ll practice leading an agile project. You’ll finish the course with a portfolio-building design brief that demonstrates your learning and specialized skills in agile product development. To get the most out of this course, we suggest you first complete the other four courses in the Agile Development Specialization: Agile Meets Design Thinking; Running Product Design Sprints, Managing an Agile Team, Testing with Agile. As a Project Management Institute (PMI®) Registered Education Provider, the University of Virginia Darden School of Business has been approved by PMI to issue 40 professional development units (PDUs) for this course, which focuses on core competencies recognized by PMI. (Provider #2122) This course is supported by the Batten Institute at UVA’s Darden School of Business.

What people are saying

60+ page capstones

There is a vast disparity between projects, with some individuals creating 60+ page capstones which clearly took time and effort, while other projects/assignments were clearly not taken seriously.

This one not so much.It's clear that the Venture Design Template (VDT) is a living, breathing document (as it should be) and that this course's instructions were based on a previous iteration of the document.As a result, the homework instructions will refer to sections of the VDT that no longer exist.In one of the Course 4 lectures, guest speaker Jim Rose states that 20% of time should be devoted to maintenance of existing features - I wish this course had gotten the maintenance that it needs.Even when one gets beyond the issue identified above, homework instructions are a bit vague.In previous courses you could see the grading rubric prior to submitting an assignment - this helped clarify what you were supposed to submit.

couple weeks ago

I have finished my journey couple weeks ago and still wait for someone to review my submission.

far less time/effort

Due to the skewed grading rubric, individuals were able to spend far less time/effort completing the bare minimum, and were awarded the same grades as others who put the thought and effort into creating a well thought out project.
