3-day workshop to be held in Saskatoon, SK.

Introduction to Agile Project Management (followed by the Certified Agile Project Manager exam)

*** Includes preparation for the new PMI Agile-Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP) exam ***

PMAC Accredited training courseAgile Project Management is not just for software development – it is being used on projects that develop new products, services or processes of all kinds. It is used in pharmaceuticals, automotive, healthcare, construction – in almost every industry.

Agile Project Management is a hot topic these days, appearing on the front covers of magazines and being presented to packed rooms at conferences.  Agile methods promise to speed up project delivery, improve stakeholder satisfaction, improve quality, and reduce overall project risk.  Recent studies have backed these claims, showing that for some types of projects, agile project management will reduce the risk of late delivery or cost overruns.

In this three-day intensive workshop, participants will learn the basic techniques of Agile Project Management including how these techniques differ from traditional methods, what value each technique can bring to a project, and how to introduce the techniques to project teams.

  • What Agile Project Management is

  • How Agile compares to other Project Management Lifecycles (PMLCs)

  • The Agile Philosophy

  • Why and When Agile works

  • Agile Team and Project Manager Characteristics

  • The Scrum Method, and will be introduced to DSDM and to the adaptive project framework (APF)
