Agile Project Management - Foundation and Practitioner

Duration: 5 Days Course


Agile approaches such as eXtreme Programming, Scrum and Lean Software Development are becoming increasingly mainstream. They
describe how to successfully deliver in complex situations when requirements and possible solutions are subject to continuous change; but
they stop short of describing a full project lifecycle with defined Phases, Work Products, Roles and Responsibilities. This course covers how to
operate in such an agile fashion within an overall project framework which is accredited as a stable-mate to PRINCE2 and based on the DSDM
Agile Project Framework (DSDM APF) approach. Through practical experience of the agile style of working, case studies and example
scenarios from a highly experienced trainer, it provides delegates with an understanding of how the Agile Project Management process can
enable planning, management and control for predictable Agile project deliveries.

within an overall project management lifecycle framework.
