In this two-day workshop, participants go beyond the definitions and theory of Lean and Agile 101 classes and gain an understanding of the specific role, responsibilities and value a Project Manager can add being lean and agile. This is not a general introduction to agile or Scrum for Project Managers. This is a course specifically on Lean-Agile Project Management.
This course explores the role and responsibilities of a Lean-Agile PM and equips them with the essential skills to be successful on Agile projects. Participants will relate the values and principles of various agile frameworks to understand how they can contribute value.
Following the basis of the Agile Business Consortium’s Agile Project Framework–with extensions for Kanban, Scrum and SAFe, attendees will learn Lean-Agile PM practices and work products that they can use throughout the agile project and development lifecycle.
This is a practical course that explains how a Project Manager can support a Product Owner, Scrum Master, the Agile Team and their clients from inception through release planning, sprint planning, iterative development and deployment.
