Course overview

Being agile means being quick, nimble, and flexible. It follows that the Agile project management methodology is geared for adaptability as well as efficiency. This system of working arose in the software industry in the early 2000s. When traditional linear workflows were restricting development, a new set of values and principles was proposed.

Agile offers an iterative approach that not only allows room for experimentation, but encourages it as a fundamental part of the collaborative process. Agile is more about flexibility and speed than rigorous planning and protocol. Teams are generally self-organized and work in short, focused bursts to deliver project goals. This course will show your project management teams how the Agile methodology can help your projects succeed.
