Description

Agile has caught the attention of business leaders in the UK and globally as a means of managing change, reducing time to market, eliminating waste and attracting and retaining customers. The question is – what is Agile Project Management and how does it differ from traditional waterfall? What are the skills and competencies required for this role? Can Agile work with your existing governance frameworks like PRINCE2? Agile methodologies empower the Team to create an evolving solution which means that the role of the Project Manager becomes that of the Leader rather than Manager. We explore the drivers and business value of Agile, introduce valuable practices into the core DNA of your business and highlight cultural and operational changes required to deliver successful Agile projects.

This two day course uses provides an introduction to Agile and each of the leading Agile methods; including Scrum, eXtreme Programming, and Lean Software Development, using practical exercises to demonstrate the skills required to manage an Agile project.
