Agile Project Management

Agile Project Management

2 Days

Delivering projects in today’s dynamic environment can be very challenging. Organizations are facing greater uncertainty and constantly changing customer and business requirements. More traditional project management approaches struggle to manage in these conditions: project plans are quickly out of date and their processes and documents slow down the delivery of initiatives. Agile project management is the answer. Agile approaches are light and adaptable, they help the project manager work effectively with multiple project teams and collaborate with customers and they help projects deliver business value quickly to the organization.


By the end of the course, delegates will have understood the key principles of agile project management, have a range of agile tools which they can take away and apply to their projects and have a clear overview of key agile approaches.

Who should attend:

This course is designed for managers new to project management, project managers with no formal training or new project managers with no practical experience. It is also ideal for experienced project managers who are looking for a solid understanding of the fundamentals of agile project management.
