AGILE for Project Management

Course Description


The Agile approach advocates the notion that the project team should create the project plan rather than the project manager. The methodology works closely with the customer or the end user throughout and focuses on evolving solutions to problems. The close relationship with the customer means that these consequences can be discussed at an early stage in order to continually reflect their needs, both in terms of work-ability and possible cost/ budget implications.

This interactive, one-day training seminar will prepare you to understand how to implement projects using the Agile Project Management methodology. It will detail the main concepts of an Agile project including ‘Prioritisation’ and ‘Timeboxing’ as well as dealing with requirements, project creep and over-runs.
