Agile Project Management

Overview

For over a decade, business and industry leaders have applied Agile PM principles to their projects, transitioning from the more rigid process-driven culture to a customer- and business value-driven approach. Agile is commonly applied to large, company-wide jobs including software development, internal information technology and an ever-increasing variety of hardware development projects.

Designed to help students learn to lead projects and motivate operational and cultural changes, this online program provides the skills needed to successfully implement agile within an organization.

Who Should Attend

This program is designed for professionals who wish to expand their knowledge of agile to optimize business performance in a wide range of industries including software development, information technology infrastructure, commercial products, healthcare, financial services, government, and high technology. The agile program is a logical next step for project and program managers, team members and those who currently hold the Project Management Professional (PMP)® designation.
