Course description

Agile 101

Having a basic understanding of the terminology, events, and methodology of agile project management is becoming more important. More projects are being managed using an agile methodology, especially when the final outcome tends to be innovative, complex, or has a level of uncertainty. Traditional project management is not always the most effective approach when flexibility and a nimble process are required to successfully deliver project outcomes in a volatile or rapidly changing environment. In this course participants will be introduced to essential tools and techniques practiced in agile.
