Course Overview


Learn what Agile project management can mean for you.
Agile software development methods differ significantly from traditional plan-based approaches, affecting how projects are planned and managed. In this course, you will explore the ways in which your role as the project manager differs on an Agile project. You will learn to 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.

This virtual short course, specifically designed to give you a quick convenient way to renew and refresh your project management skills, maintain your Project Management Professional (PMP)® certification, and earn PDUs on your own time, at your own pace.

Virtual short courses do not include materials or headsets.
