Participants in this 3-day session will learn the techniques of Agile Project Management through simulations and examples from real-world projects that used these methods to control changing requirements.


 
Course Outline
 Whether in government or private industry, project managers face a huge challenge when confronted with continually changing requirements. How can you plan when the things keep changing? Traditional project management approaches suggest that we take a snapshot of the requirements as a baseline, and then use change control in an attempt to minimize the impact of any shifting requirements. Sometimes, however, these changes are a reality that the project sponsor has to accommodate. The new Agile Project Management methods help deal with these situations.

Participants in this 3-day session will learn the techniques of Agile Project Management through simulations and examples from real-world projects that used these methods to control changing requirements.

Learning Objectives To provide experienced project managers with advanced understanding of the principles and techniques of agile project management, so that they will be able to identify situations where agile techniques may add value and begin to apply the techniques to reduce overall project risk on highchange projects.

Who Should Attend This course introduces some advanced variations on basic project management practices. While anyone can attend, project managers with some experience managing IT projects or new product development projects will find the material more applicable to their day-to-day work.
