Some knowledge of projects or Agile methodology is recommended but not required.
As companies increasingly adopt the agile methodology to manage a wide spectrum of projects, project managers and team members at all levels must learn how to effectively apply this approach to maximize results. If your role involves managing or working on projects in an existing agile environment or if your company is planning to implement agile soon, then take this course to learn how to manage an agile project from inception to closeout.
This course provides a thorough understanding of the agile process and extensive opportunities to practice implementing agile best practices throughout a project’s life cycle. You will learn about agile concepts such as the minimum viable product (MVP), project envisioning, team velocity, estimating and prioritizing user stories, how to manage risk, effective techniques to identify key stakeholders and their success criteria, and best practices for leading agile teams.
The course exercises provide hands-on experience in all areas of agile project management including developing an agile team, understanding client needs, creating user stories, estimating required resources, and prioritizing features. This course also covers how to coach and collaborate effectively, including integrating with teams using different methodologies. In addition, you will plan iterations, identify risk, modify stories in the backlog, and coordinate a release.
