Unleash your team’s potential: Master Scrum and the principles of Agile project management to deliver faster, more innovative solutions. After learning the basics of Agile, you’ll explore other frameworks to understand differences in scale, structure, and empowerment. Then you’ll dive into the science and essential principles to achieve the benefits of the Agile method: Speed, Innovation, Leadership, and Control. By the end of the series, students should be able to explain how Agile techniques address faults in traditional project management techniques, the tradeoffs of these approaches, and when it’s best to apply them to maximize value to the organization.
We’ve teamed with edX to empower professionals with the tools they need to master Agile Project Management on the job – all without having to be enrolled in a formal educational degree program.
Whether you’re delivering a small part of a project or portfolios of large multi-million-dollar government works; these principles ensure delivery success. This is why companies that embrace these principles continue to set record earnings and stock prices (e.g. AMZN, APPL, TSLA); and those that ignore them find themselves unable to compete.
Whether you’re delivering a small part of a project or portfolios of large multi-million-dollar government works, these principles scale and apply to all industries to achieve delivery success.
