Agile Project Management
Surviving in today’s dynamic business world requires organizations to be able to respond quickly and effectively to changing business and project conditions. Project managers have to master new approaches to project planning and team management. In this course, students learn the theories and methods behind agile or adaptive project life cycles and agile tools, techniques, and skills. The course introduces the principles and best practices of the Scrum agile product development framework. Class discussions cover how agile methods for determining requirements, estimating, and enabling self-managing teams to build products can help to better control today’s high-demand, ever-changing project environments. Students learn how to embrace change even when it is introduced late in a project life cycle and how to apply agile techniques for managing change and risk in a project. The content and subject matter presented in this class are aligned with A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide)—Sixth Edition and other appropriate PMI® global standards.
