Agile Project Management Training

Course#: WA2076

This course aims to help new and seasoned project managers who are transitioning to a ScrumMaster, Agile Coach or Agile Program Manager/Release Manager role learn how to successfully apply Agile methods to their projects and programs. Participants will learn the full Agile Development Lifecycle, how to lead teams through Agile planning sessions, and understand techniques and practices to successfully execute on project and program deliverables.  We will discuss the role of the Agile Project Manager and Program Manager through the various stages as well as the key Servant Leadership, Facilitation, and Soft Skills necessary to make this role a success.

Participants will work through a sample real-world project and experience how to build the program master backlog, gather requirements at the right level at the right time, decide on team structures and roles, estimate the project and build a program roadmap and release plan. Our experienced hands-on coaches will share many real-world techniques used to mitigate risks during planning. We will review a sample Agile Roadmap and Release Plan, Value and Cost burn up charts, taskboards, key agile metrics and a sample Agile project workbook. Attendees will gain insight on how to bridge the gap between traditional and Agile Project Management. This is a must have course for any project manager transitioning to Agile!
