With the explosion of new terms such as BigData, Cloud Computing and Hadoop, another interesting term " Agile "has made a mark on the market recently. Agile offers significant advantages over traditional forms of project management system for small businesses.
Madarapu Nagaraju, Co-founder and Managing Director, KnowledgeHut explains the use of Agile as a boon for small businesses to prosper in a short span of time.Quite often, what is taught in our educational institutions does not translate well into a career. To stand apart from the rest, professionals need some extra-targeted training that will prepare them well for the job scene.Training institutes have stepped in to address this skill-gap, making life easier for corporate offices and multinationals, and KnowledgeHut is one of the prominent players in the training market.

As unique skills will help students to have an edge over their peers and make them an asset for the organization that they are working for, there is always a tremendous amount of pressure on an individual to be skilled.

KnowledgeHut promises ready employability by offering the most in-demand industry skills.

KnowledgeHut's niche specialty is Agile, and its Agile consultancy leverages proven experience in the field to offer advisory services that can turn around businesses and help them to implement a successful Agile management model.

These Agile projects can handle these rapid changes very well as the work is carried out in short iterations and constantly connects the developer and end user at every point," says Nagaraju.

Small businesses that have adopted Agile are consistent in delivering superior value to customers, using minimal human and material resources. As a result they can overcome the struggles usually faced by a new business. As more employers look into hiring candidates who are proficient at Agile development, certification courses like CSM, CSPO, Leading SAFe 4.0, PMI-ACP and SAFeScrumXP have many takers and KnowledgeHut's expert trainers offer the best of the required knowledge and skills.

Madarapu Nagaraju, Co-founder and Managing Director of KnowledgeHut shares his journey so far and says, "There is a sizeable gap between what is learnt at college, and what is expected on the job front." He feels that to address this, and in order to stay ahead of the competition, professionals need to have specialized targeted training that is work-ready and hands-on. "Hence, we founded KnowledgeHut in 2011 with a handful of training courses in key areas such as Project Management, IT and Agile."
