Leverage your Project Management skills with Agile techniques

This course provides two days of experience in managing and controlling Agile Software Development projects, looking at the underlying philosophy and motivation for this trend in software development. It also examines the core practices and techniques of a number of Agile Methods, and their impact on project management activities.

Intended For

* Managers and executives responsible for software development
* Project managers responsible for software development projects
* Iteration Managers and Scrum Masters working on Agile projects
* Business analysts gathering requirements for software development
* Team leaders and developers building software systems
* Business Managers who have to sponsor and are responsible for the introduction of new computer based information systems.

Prerequisites

Participants are expected to have experience in software development, and ideally have some experience with project management in software environments. There is no need to be experienced with specific Agile methods as the course includes a discussion of the rationale and background of these methods. This course does not teach you how to be a project manager (for that we have Software Education's 3-day Software Project Management course). Instead, it teaches you how to apply your existing project management knowledge to Agile projects. For those requiring more of a grounding in Agile fundamentals, a suggested lead-in course is Taste of Agile.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of this, course participants will be able to:

* Understand the background to and the driving forces for taking an Agile approach to software development
* Understand the core practices and philosophies behind a number of specific Agile Methodologies
* Appreciate the organisational and people challenges and opportunities the Agile approach brings to the software development process
* Know how these have been overcome in some real projects
* Know how project management should be addressed on Agile projects
* Use some new techniques and methods for managing and guiding Agile projects.
