Agile Project Management

Some important project management trends have emerged in recent years. Not only is there a growing need to track anticipated project benefits with increased precision, but expectations are also becoming more demanding, with stricter budget requirements and more aggressive times-to-market to factor into the equation. Accordingly, a number of Agile project management principles and techniques have come to the forefront. Whether the team under your supervision is tasked with project delivery or routine operations, Agile techniques have a lot to offer.

This seminar will introduce you to the most common Agile methods used in the business world and help you implement them effectively to harness their full potential.
