Agile Project Management is a hot topic these days, appearing on the front covers of magazines and being presented to packed rooms at conferences. Agile methods promise to speed up project delivery, improve stakeholder satisfaction, improve quality, and reduce overall project risk. Recent studies have backed these claims, showing that for some types of projects, agile project management will reduce the risk of late delivery or cost overruns.
In this three-day intensive workshop, participants will learn the basic techniques of Agile Project Management including how these techniques differ from traditional methods, what value each technique can bring to a project, and how to introduce the techniques to project teams.
