Applying Agile to Non-Technology Projects

  • Project Management
  • Course Code: 96003

The Manifesto for Agile Software Development may have been written for software development, but the core principles on which it was based — servant-leadership and lean manufacturing — can be applied to any type of project. The release of the Sixth Edition of the PMBOK® Guide and the new Agile Practice Guide reinforces the importance for all project managers to add some Agile tools to their project management toolbelt. This 1-day course will change the way you look at Agile project management and teach Agile behaviours, practices and techniques which can be used regardless of industry or project delivery approach.
