Duration: 1.0 days
This course is not scheduled at the moment. Please contact us to arrange for a custom training.


Agile approaches were created for high-uncertainty projects which have high rates of change, complexity and risk. Traditional predictive approaches dont work for projects with these characteristics. Agile approaches originally were designed for software development projects, but they work well for any complex, innovative scope of work.

This course gives an overview of the most popular agile approaches and explains how the project management knowledge areas and processes should be applied to a project which is executed in an agile environment

Organisations should adopt agile because of the business benefits, e.g.  time-to-market, quality, productivity, employee satisfaction and stakeholder satisfaction. To achieve success, the implications of becoming agile must be transferred into all parts of the organisation. This course includes practical information on what should be considered in an organisations transition effort to agile.
