Release Management Training (online)


Corporations achieve higher quality, speed and efficiency of software development by focusing on Release Management. Release management is a framework that is the result of the relationship challenges between: business, portfolio, design, build, testing, operations and security. Release management works in cycles and each cycle is built up by release stages. Beyond transparency and cost efficiency the overall benefit of Release management is shorter TTM (time-to-market).

Release Managers have key roles in IT by managing release scopes, release stages (design, build, testing and cutovers) and test environments (PROD-like-code-base maintenance, infra layers, app layers and patching). Release management is also responsible for operational feedback to fulfill all CI/CD requirements (if code-base complexity allows).

Participants who complete the course and take and pass an online test receive the title “Sprint Consulting Certified Release Manager”.



The key to a successful Release Management is a strong foundation, common interpretation and shared vocabulary, which can only be established by all parties participating in the same course. In order to avoid future misunderstandings, our aim is to refresh and lift the existing release knowledge to a higher common level, to fill the gaps and to synchronize the interpretation.
