Course Overview

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. However, they do not describe 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 Atern 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 includes:

  • Understand the fundamentals of Agile Project Management
  • Understand the key Agile Project Management practices and how to manage Agile Project teams
  • Describe and relate the Agile Project Management process
  • Understand project control in the Agile environment
