Friday 9 & Saturday 10 June 2017 (16 hours)
This is the first PM2 Agile Project Management workshop ever to be introduced to the public, as until now it is only run within the EC.
This two-day Agile Project Management workshop is designed to help participants understand how they can incorporate agile practices into their projects, based on the Agile PM² Model. The Agile approach embraces change and provides mechanisms which allow project teams to better deal with uncertainty and deliver projects in an iterative and incremental way.
The workshop presents the internal and external factors that need to be considered for the successful integration of Agile practices into an organization’s project management culture and prepares participants to successfully apply key Agile PM² techniques in their projects.
Participants of this course will be engaged in a series of workshops combining theory and hands on work, starting from the creation of a backlog during which the initial epics are identified, to developing a release plan, and going through the repeating activities of planning iterations, managing planned work and evaluating iteration performance.
