Agile methods promise early, continuous and accelerating return on
investment for stakeholders and high degrees of job satisfaction for
team members. These methods are particularly appropriate for creative
projects including program development, materials development, new
product development, and IT projects. In this three-day course, you
will learn the foundational skills of agile project and process
management. Participants who pass this course will receive the
Certified ScrumMaster designation.
Agile project management is radically different from traditional
project management. Rather than plan, instruct and direct, the agile
project manager facilitates, coaches and serves. In the Scrum
practice this person is called a ScrumMaster.
In this course participants learn how to guide the development team,
a project, or an organization into Agile practice by fostering the
adoption of new attitudes, collaborative processes and working to
remove institutional barriers. Exercises, case studies, and examples
are used to assist participants to develop the knowledge, skills,
capabilities and insights needed to make the shift from traditional
management practice to Agile practice.
Preparation: Approximately one week prior to the course, detailed
instructions and course materials will be made available to confirmed
