Today, global businesses want and need to be able to deliver products to the market faster. As new projects are selected, it is important to determine whether a traditional or Agile project management approach is appropriate. For a project to succeed, the organization needs to support the process, customers need to be involved daily, teams need to be creative and self-disciplined, and project managers need to be able to facilitate and lead the team. Working in an Agile environment means being able to quickly deliver the customers’ features on time and be able to respond to their needs by balancing flexibility and stability in this ever-changing world.
This Agile for beginners course will help you:
- Decide if your organization is ready to accept estimates and status reports that are different from those of previous projects
- Determine whether your customer will be an active participant on a daily basis
- Identify any shortcomings your global team may have
- Determine if the project manager has the skills and characteristics needed to lead an Agile project
Through an integrated case study, participants will have the opportunity to select a project for Agile development and work through the life cycle of an Agile project.
