Course Summary:

Learn how to apply project management practices in an Agile environment!

The concept of Agile Project Management is very rapidly evolving and will have a significant impact on the project management profession; however, we are in the early stages of that transformation and there is a lot of confusion about what impact it has on project managers. This course will help you unravel a lot of the confusion that exists; develop a totally new perspective to see both Agile and traditional project management principles and practices in a new light as complementary to each other rather than competitive; and learn to develop an adaptive approach to project management to blend those principles and practices together in the right proportions to fit any situation.

This course is part of a sequence of courses that are designed to cover most of the knowledge required for PMI-ACP® certification but the courses present that knowledge in a very practical, real-world context to provide a much deeper understanding of the principles behind it.

Special Note:

This course is part of an overall curriculum that is designed around helping students develop the skills required for a high-impact Agile Project Management role.
