Agile Project Management has been on the rise as a trend in project management since the early 2000s and is increasingly popular as an alternative to traditional project management methodologies, especially among software development and IT teams. These values and principles provide guidance on how to create and respond to change and how to deal with uncertainty in today’s technology-driven world! This course will not only teach you the values and principles contained in the Agile manifesto but also explain the different Agile methodologies that can be applied to your project, including Lean, Scrum and Kanban. Knowledge of these methodologies will assist you to determine what works most effectively for you, your team and the organisation.
