Agile methodology has shown very high potential and has become more commonplace. As companies continue to adopt agile methodology to manage projects, project managers and team members at all levels need to learn to effectively implement agile approaches. Agile development requires more than changes to project management techniques, the entire project team needs to change their approaches and methodologies. In this interactive course, students participate in a series of simulations, providing an understanding of the agile process and practice implementing agile practices throughout a project life cycle. Topics also include adopting an agile mindset, and agile concepts like the minimum viable product (MVP), project envisioning, team velocity, estimating and prioritizing user stories, backlog and release, how to manage risk, effective techniques to identify key stakeholders and their success criteria, and best practices for leading agile teams.
The PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP)® formally recognizes your knowledge of agile principles and your skill with agile techniques.
