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.

  • 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.

Six reasons why you should sit your Surestep & Agile Project Management course with Firebrand Training

  1. You’ll be trained in just 2 days.
  2. Our course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, accommodation and meals
  3. You’ll learn more. A day with a traditional training provider generally runs from 9am – 5pm, with a nice long break for lunch. With Firebrand Training you’ll get at least 12 hours/day quality learning time, with your instructor

  5. You’ll get award-winning training. We’ve been named in Training Industry’s “Top 20 IT Training Companies of the Year” every year since 2010. As well as winning many more awards, we’ve trained and certified 108,507 professionals, and we’re partners with all of the big names in the business
  6. You'll do more than study courseware. We use labs, case studies and practice tests to make sure you can apply your new knowledge to the work environment. Our instructors use demonstrations and real-world experience to keep the day interesting and engaging

"The course was extremely enjoyable!"
Anonymous, ALD Automotive. (10/8/2021 (Tuesday) to 13/8/2021 (Friday))

"The instructor has been absolutely fantastic and I have got a lot out of this course. It has helped reinforce my knowledge, covered everything from basics to advanced topics. Having an in-person tutor has been immensely helpful as the students have been able to ask questions during discussions and have had explanations in a straightforward way that empathises with beginners from a non-technical background."
Suzanne Clark, ALD. (10/8/2021 (Tuesday) to 13/8/2021 (Friday))
