The Event
The recent emergence of Agile Methods represents an exciting opportunity for organisations to establish a proven software process that is results focussed while placing minimal overhead on the company.

Unlike traditional “heavyweight” processes, Agile Methods expect and welcome change. They are built around an ethos of developer and customer collaboration.

Agile Methods deliver customer requirements through early and continuous delivery of valuable software, in contrast to the traditional approach of a long development time before implementation.

Agile Methods are also particularly designed for smaller people-oriented companies working in a dynamic environment and relying on the creativity and skill of their developers to drive company growth.

Agile Project Management represents a paradigm shift for Project Managers familiar with a traditional environment. Fundamentals of Agile Project Management will help smooth this transition and provide the necessary skills to manage an Agile Project successfully.

Who should attend?
This course is designed for people who want a grounding in Agile Project Management principles and practices. It is applicable to Project Managers, Team Leaders or other Management with an interest in Agile Development
