Introduction to Agile Project Management

Course Description


The application of Agile techniques represents the biggest change in project management approach in recent decades: what started as a cutting-edge manifesto for improving software development in 2001 is now driving mainstream methodologies, that are in use every day, in every organisation, in all types of project.  Agile is here to stay, and its popularity is rapidly increasing; it’ll soon be the De Facto approach for most organisations.

This interactive, one-day workshop introduces the Agile concepts, explains how it’s different to traditional project management methodologies, offers a brief insight into the tools, techniques and mindset behind it, and allows you to test the theory in a classroom environment.  It will also debunk some of the popular misconceptions about what “Agile delivery” means, to make sure that those attending have a proper and modern understanding of the concepts and their application in the workplace. 

You will learn:

  • The case for Agile and how it differs from traditional Project Management methodologies
  • The difference between Product Delivery and Project Management in an Agile world
  • An overview of Agile concepts and terminology
  • An introduction to 2 key Agile techniques: Prioritisation and Timeboxing
  • Pulling it all together – examples and exercises to explore “hands on” use of Agile tools

  • Traditional project managers looking to better understand the value of an Agile methodology
  • Individuals who are considering further investment in formal Agile project management training and certification
