On this 2-day Microsoft Dynamics Sure Step & Agile Project Management course, you'll understand the processes and disciplines necessary to implement Microsoft Dynamics ERP and CRM products. The guidance, tools, templates and best practices provided in this course can help increase the consistency, timeframes, quality and success of Microsoft Dynamics engagements.

On this course you'll cover the following:

  • What is Microsoft Dynamics Sure Step?
  • What is scrum?
  • Pre-implementation and presales
  • Waterfall delivery
  • Agile delivery
  • Deployment and operation

You'll learn through Firebrand’s unique Lecture | Lab | Review technique. This approach combines both theoretical learning with hands-on practical material. This will accelerate your learning and ensure you leave us with the experience to implement your new found knowledge when you return to work.

You'll also benefit from industry expert instructors that will make use of their rich experience to enhance your understanding of the course material.

Benefits

Other accelerated training providers rely heavily on lecture and independent self-testing and study.

Effective technical instruction must be highly varied and interactive to keep attention levels high, promote camaraderie and teamwork between the students and instructor, and solidify knowledge through hands-on learning.

Firebrand Training provides instruction to meet every learning need:

  • Intensive group instruction
  • One-on-one instruction attention
  • Hands-on labs
  • Lab partner and group exercises
  • Question and answer drills
  • Independent study

This information has been provided as a helpful tool for candidates considering training. Courses that include certification come with a certification guarantee. Pass first time or train again for free (just pay for accommodation and exams on your return). We do not make any guarantees about personal successes or benefits of obtaining certification. Benefits of certification determined through studies do not guarantee any particular personal successes.
