An Overview of Agile Project Management

Description

Agile project management methods differ significantly from traditional plan-based approaches. In this short course, you will explore the ways in which agile projects are planned and managed. You will learn to form and coach a self-directed team, facilitate continuous collaboration with your customer, embrace changing requirements, and deliver business value to your customer early and regularly throughout the project.

Virtual short courses do not include materials or headsets.
