Agile approaches such as eXtreme Programming, Scrum and Lean Software Development are becoming increasingly mainstream. They describe how to successfully deliver in complex situations when requirements and possible solutions are subject to continuous change; but they stop short of describing a full project lifecycle with defined Phases, Work Products, Roles and Responsibilities. This course covers how to operate in such an Agile fashion within an overall project framework based on the DSDM Agile Project Framework approach. Through practical experience of the Agile style of working, case studies and example scenarios from a highly experienced trainer, it provides delegates with an understanding of how the Agile Project Management process can enable planning, management and control for predictable Agile project deliveries.
The course is aimed at Project Managers and others involved in Project Management who want to understand how to apply Agile approaches within an overall project management lifecycle framework.
By actively participating in this course, you will learn about the following:
Understand the fundamentals of Agile Project Management.
Understand the key Agile Project Management practices and how to manage Agile Project teams.
Fully describe and relate the Agile Project Management process.
Understand project control in the Agile environment.
There are no prerequisites for this course although it would be beneficial for delegates to have some practical experience of project work within an Agile environment.
