"Introduction to Agile"
Awareness can be awful thing – waterfall was actually intended to be an early version of Agile! There I said it – we just spent 50 years doing it wrong! In this introduction to Agile project management, you'll learn all about one of the costliest misunderstandings in history of IT and Project Management, why waterfall was actually intended to be Agile, the different methods for being Agile, the role Lean can play in Agile, how to be an Agile Project Manager, and all about the new PMI-ACP certification. It will be an entertaining and packed 7 hours of learning.
If you're considering PMI's new Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP), this course will give you 7 of the required 24 contact hours toward that certification in addition to 7 PDUs or contact hours for the PMP certification or re-certification.
Students will learn the complete history of Agile, the different Agile methods with a focus on Scrum, and how to apply Agile Scrum to projects large or small from a PMs point of view.
This course is intended for Project Managers, Program Managers, or anyone who wants to learn about Agile Project Management.
