Abstract: Agile is emerging as a new paradigm for organizations across a variety of industry sectors because Agile helps teams manage and adapt quickly to change. In order to provide our students with workforce ready skills and better performance in group projects, a regional campus Computer and Information Technology (CIT) department began implementing Agile across its curriculum. After a visit to a local business who underwent an Agile transformation and is now using Agile for all their teams, they said that understanding the culture of Agile is more important than the practices themselves. Revising our curriculum allows us to give our students the advantage of learning how to be Agile and what it means to thrive in an Agile culture
