Presentation summary

Many of today’s Project Management and Business Analyst Professionals are finding themselves leading, managing and analyzing on Agile development teams - only to find that many of the tools and techniques applied when using a traditional project management approach no longer work as effectively or at all. In order to do more than survive in this iterative development environment, today’s Project Manager and Business Analyst must employ additional project management and business analysis tools and techniques to effectively lead their teams and deliver their projects.

This presentation will introduce to you how your projects can easily and successfully make the transition to an effective Agile environment. Agile Scrum is an incremental, iterative framework for project management and software development - where requirements and solutions evolve through collaboration between self-organizing cross-functional teams.

Learning Objectives

In this presentation, we will introduce you to what is Agile and why adopt Agile. We will cover the following topic areas:

  • Discuss how to minimize project uncertainty and risk by applying Agile principles
  • Introduce you to the essential skills required for Project Managers and Business Analysts to successfully manage Agile Projects
  • Learn how to apply Agile to current projects: explore how your projects can easily and successfully make the transition to an effective Agile environment
  • What obstacles do you have to overcome when adopting Agile?
