In fast companies, and those aiming to become fast, agile tools and work products have evolved from "bleeding edge" to standard practice in 2020. While many megafirms continue to organize large projects by a plan-driven (or "waterfall") approach, even within those projects, work is increasingly organized by an agile mindset. This course introduces that mindset, along with its practices and cutting-edge team technologies. Key texts and thought leaders are introduced, and the core learning activities are practical, constructive, cumulative, and personal. Participants will develop agile artefacts pertinent to their own work situation, including product vision boxes, user stories, and release plans. The course makes use of cutting-edge collaboration tools, including Zoom®, Mural®, and Trello®. In the fast-paced, collaborative settings these media create, participants role play agile activities, such as "daily stand ups" and "user story workshops". Anyone new to project management who wishes to have a hands-on introduction to the current state of the art could benefit from this course. Working managers wishing to learn more about agile, including those already doing some form of it may also benefit.
This course can count toward the education requirements for PMI certification (PMP or CAPM) or serve as a refresher course for the Continuing Certification Requirement exam.
