Today, global businesses want and need to be able to deliver products to the market faster. As new projects are selected by the organization or management, 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.
Agile Project Management will help you:
- Decide if your organization is ready to accept estimates and status reports that are different from 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.

ctc TrainCanada - We Never Cancel*:
We are unique in the corporate training field in that we do not cancel desktop applications courses due to low enrollment. When there are less than 3 students, ctc TrainCanada will personalize the class (students then receive more time with the instructor to address their individual needs allowing the student to complete the full course in less time) or connect the student remotely to a class at one of our other branches via TrainLive remote classroom instruction. *Microsoft Certified Courses and other technical courses require a minimum enrollment of three students. Business Skills courses require multiple students in order to run due to the interactive nature of the training. Selected Desktop Applications courses may require a minimum enrollment of two students to run. ctc TrainCanada® reserves the right to deliver Microsoft Certified and other technical courses via TrainLive remote classroom instruction in order to guarantee the course to run.
