Course Description: Agile Project Management
While agile project management is not the answer to all project issues, it does solve some critical problems that we commonly face on complex, high-change projects. The latest research shows that the adoption of agile methods is rapidly spreading, with over 2/3 of large organizations already using some agile techniques, while most of the remaining have plans in place to pilot agile management methods within the next 12 months.
This three-day intensive workshop will give you a solid understanding of agile project management techniques and when to apply them. At the end of the course, participants write the PMAC Certified Agile Project Manger exam, and if passed will receive their Certified Agile Project Manager certificate from the PMAC (Project Management Association of Canada)
