Develop Agile Project Management skills that will open up new opportunities for your career growth and make you a stronger project manager even if you are never involved in a pure Agile project!
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.
The course goes covers most of the knowledge required for PMI-ACP® certification but presents it in a very practical, real-world context to provide a much deeper understanding of the principles behind it and the course includes a number of case studies to show how to apply this knowledge in a typical real-world situation.
