While some organizations using Agile development do not use the title of ‘Project Manager’ and put a strong emphasis on self-organizing teams, Agile project management skills are key to working more cohesively, communicating more effectively with stakeholders, and supporting the team with an appropriate level and combination of leadership and guidance, coordination and facilitation. This Agile project management training course will help you learn the skills, techniques, and mindset needed to manage projects using an Agile approach. You will learn how to collaborate with stakeholders and support self-organizing teams in continuously adjusting and refining their efforts to increase efficiency and effectiveness.

You Will Learn How To

  • Justify taking an Agile approach to software and solutions development
  • Apply a number of tools and techniques to develop the project community, from structuring and coordinating self-organizing teams to ensuring continuous feedback across all layers of the organization
  • Use Agile techniques to plan, track, and monitor Agile projects, programs, and portfolios
  • Increase team effectiveness by focusing on value-driven delivery and continuous customer and user feedback
  • Utilize Agile tools and techniques to provide a guidance and decision making framework for self-organizing Agile teams to ensure their continuous alignment with organizational goals
