Training iSAQB® CPSA-Advanced AGILA (3 days)



Our AGILA training will take place as an online training.


Agile Software Architecture - Design and develop software systems and Architecture according to agile principles

Software architecture is increasingly being developed by self-organized teams with shared responsibilities and in an iterative fashion. New skills are needed by developers and architects alike - they include technical expertise as well as methodological and communicative aspects.

In this seminar you will experience how agile principles change the way we work on software architectures and how architectural practices are embedded into agile processes and methods like Scrum. New techniques, interesting ideas and good practices are introduced in small batches as we iteratively make our way through a sample project. You’ll have a hands-on experience of a new architectural discipline. A discipline that doesn’t focus on a sole mastermind architect, a disciple that is based on agile and lean concepts and is a natural fit for agile contexts. A discipline that emphasizes pragmatism and transparency.

Workshop language: English


The training is licensed by the iSAQB as part of the Advanced Level Certification (CPSA-A). By participating in this 3-day training you will receive 30 credit points (20 methodical / 10 communicative).
