Description
If you have followed a traditional project management approach and find yourself spending a lot of time fine tuning the design to accommodate changing requirements, you may want to consider a different approach. In this course, you will be introduced to agile project management, including the core values and principles outlined by the Agile Manifesto. Agile projects are characterized by the use of short work iterations and incremental development of products, made possible by focusing on business priorities and customer value. The course provides an introduction to common agile methodologies, describes the relationship between defined and empirical processes, and highlights the key difference in regards to the triangle of constraints of agile versus traditional methods.
This course is intended for project managers, program managers, or anyone who wants to efficiently participate in projects that experience frequent change in the project requirements. It is aligned with the Agile Certified Practitioner exam objectives developed by the Project Management Institute® and Certified ScrumMaster learning objectives.
