The Agile Project Manager

Learn to be an Agile Project Manager

Are you a project or programme manager transitioning to an Agile world? Are people telling you there is no project management role or that they don’t do estimates any more? Do you have to interface between Agile teams and a Waterfall organisation? Do you believe in Agile but don’t know how to introduce it? Are the teams doing Scrum one day and Kanban the next and there seems like there’s no control?

Rather than teaching one Agile method, this training course will teach Agile principles and practices and show how they connect to project management knowledge (such as PMBOK). It will show you how to apply them, to give you complete flexibility as a project manager to get the best delivery in a full-blown Agile implementation or in a highly waterfall organisation.

Find out how to use Agile to your advantage to create high-performing teams, delivering high-quality on-time.

The course is highly interactive and practical. You are encouraged to bring any project artefacts you have and work on your own real-world examples; you’ll be helped to create personal actions and strategies that will benefit you immediately.
