Agile Project Management Essentials

Much has been said about running agile project management. However, most courses talk about the development approach to agile projects and not so much on the management approach. As projects become more complex and approaches vary, the need to complement traditional (waterfall) methods with new approaches becomes a necessity. This three half day course is geared towards the project manager who is managing agile projects – regardless of the development methodology and industry. Based completely on PMI’s Agile Practice Guide and with references to the PMBOK® Guide – 6th Edition, you are guaranteed to come off this training fully equipped to manage any type of agile project for any type of industry. Learn today and lead tomorrow.

This course is delivered as an online classroom plus offline work to maximize learning without the need to be physically present.

At the end of this course participants should be able to

  • Describe the concepts of Agile and the different approaches
  • Determine what is the preferred approach for each type of project
  • Prepare his/her organization to have an Agile Mindset
  • Apply some of the Agile Practices in his/her workplace
  • Describe the considerations needed to establish an agile-ready organization
