Initially developed to improve software development, agile methodologies are now used across industries and functions to manage a range of projects. Harvard Business Review cites applications from HR to marketing, new product development to warehousing, calling it a “radical alternative to command-and-control-style management” that accelerates profitable growth.
This workshop-style program will familiarize you with agile project management; introduce you to its tools, techniques and frameworks; and show you how to determine which projects are suited for agile management, and how best to enable teams (or “scrums”) to achieve their objectives. It uses a hands-on approach that requires a high level of engagement from participants. Classroom sessions are followed by individual and team exercises that provide the opportunity to put newly acquired tools and techniques to use. This powerful combination of instruction and application maximizes learning and retention.
Agile Project Management is delivered over three half days online in a fully live format. Unlike other virtual programs, it builds a virtual classroom community that allows you to engage with other program participants and share your own experiences and challenges. The program is accredited by the Project Management Institute (PMI) and covers the Agile content in its certification exam. It also counts toward the education requirement for Project Management Professionals (PMPs) and aspiring PMPs.
