To successfully manage and support an agile project, you first need a basic understanding of agile. In this course, we introduce the agile methodology, define an agile project, and discuss the Agile Manifesto and its founding principles. We cover each component of the agile project life cycle along with its iterative and adaptive project management approach. We will also discuss typical agile team roles and responsibilities and a reflection on how a project manager can emulate or support these roles. After completing this course, you will recognize and understand the agile context sufficiently to determine how you can best support the agile efforts within your organization.
- Some knowledge of projects or Agile methodology is recommended but not required.
