Description

Who is this course for

This course is designed for anyone who has to work within a project environment, and who needs to understand the key elements of Agile ways of working. Delegates who need a broader and deeper understanding of the DSDM framework will want to go on to study for the AgilePM® Practitioner exam.

Purpose of the course

Agile techniques such as Scrum are highly regarded and can be wildly successful. Scrum on its own, however, focusses principally on getting work done. In this course, you will learn what Agile means, and will also learn how the DSDM framework wraps up techniques such as Scrum with a full project management lifecycle. DSDM is the name of the framework you will learn, and AgilePM is the certification for the framework.

You will learn how to


  • Use Agile techniques to help deliver successful projects consistently on time and within budget constraints.

  • Compare and contrast Agile approaches with more traditional Project Management techniques, such as PRINCE2®.

Prerequisites

There are no pre-requisites for this course. Delegates new to project management will learn a great deal about how to manage projects. Existing project managers, or others involved in project management will learn a new way of looking at the project lifecycle.

Benefits for you as an individual

Understanding the different management style needed for successful Agile projects compared to traditional projects will mean you can tailor your approach to different situations. Knowing how you can combine this knowledge with the more traditional management methodologies will allow you to adapt to a changing business environment.

 

 


 

Benefits for your organisation

Traditional project management is sometimes known as Big Design Up Front (BDUF), and can be fantastic. However, if you apply BDUF to the wrong sort of project, you are likely to be heading for trouble. This course teaches you the key questions to ask to decide whether a given project would benefit most from a Traditional approach, an Agile approach, or a combination of the two.

Excellent and informative instruction. Pleased to see some intelligent use of the short time frame to use Agile to resolve our questions.
