Course description

Manage Agile Projects Using Scrum

Agile project management is a project management methodology based on the idea that projects must be able to adapt to ever changing business needs. To minimize risk, components are built in small, discrete timeframes. There have been several approaches to agile project management over the years. Scrum, the approach addressed in this course, has been used since the early 1990s. While not directly addressed in the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide), Scrum is a form of iterative project management referenced in the PMBOK® Guide.

Agile Project Management Using Scrum provides context for what agile project management is, its benefits, and how it differs from traditional project management. It also introduces roles, processes, and techniques to overcome the challenges of working on agile projects.

The course is taught by experienced project managers, and much of the class time is devoted to exercises in which participants can practice the skills being taught. Job aids introduced in the course can be used by participants when they return to the workplace to help them apply their new skills in the performance of job tasks.
