BP141 Agile Project Management

Organizations are increasingly adopting Agile methods to help their projects deal with expanding uncertainty and complexity. As such, experienced project managers and other stakeholders are interested in the costs and benefits of Agile Project Management versus traditional project management. Agile methods and practices entail enhanced roles and responsibilities and new opportunities to improve effectiveness and efficiency. A shift to Agile means learning how Agile projects differ from traditional projects, how to apply familiar project management skills in new ways, and learning how to capture the benefits and real-world results that Agile methods can deliver. This two-day class explores the knowledge, skills, and techniques needed to transition to Agile project management.Register now button
