Do you have formal management expertise, but are new to agile methods? Do you want to learn more about agile project management (APM) and also how your PMBOK-style management expertise can be best leveraged when managing agile projects?
This one-day workshop is designed to prepare managers with experience managing traditional/waterfall SDLC projects to manage projects that employ agile methods including Scrum and eXtreme Programming (XP). We will begin with an overview of core agile principles, agile project management practices and adjustments necessary when transitioning to APM. Next, we will prepare for a project simulation session that will simulate an actual agile project. Finally, we will simulate the running of the project, and you will get to apply many techniques through hands-on exercises.
This workshop is taught by active agile practitioners with decades of real-world industry experience at companies ranging from small business to the Fortune 250. Exercises, case studies, and examples are interwoven throughout the course to illustrate the principles being taught.
Who Should Attend?
Program and portfolio managers, product and line managers, project managers, technical managers, organization change agents; and anyone interested in learning how to manage agile projects with a proven approach that minimizes risk and maximizes business value.
