Agile Project Management

Learn the agile methodology in this hands-on, skills-building course.

GK# 2923

Course Overview

TOP

Agile software development methods differ significantly from traditional plan-based approaches, affecting how projects are planned and managed. In this course, you'll walk through a project using the agile project management methodology from conception to completion. You will learn and apply agile practices as you determine ways to make your own projects more agile.

Your role as the project manager of an agile project will look much different as you form and coach a self-directed team, facilitate continuous collaboration with your customer, embrace changing requirements, and deliver business value (production-ready software) to your customer early and regularly throughout the project.

Students pursuing a university-recognized and/or accredited certificate in Canada or continuing education units in the US must attend at least 90% of class time, participate in class exercises and section-knowledge checks, and score at least 70% on an end-of-class, multiple-choice assessment.
