Overview

Learn what Agile project management can mean for you.
Agile software development methods differ significantly from traditional plan-based approaches, affecting how projects are planned and managed. In this course, you will explore the ways in which your role as the project manager differs on an Agile project. You will learn to form and coach a self-directed team, facilitate continuous collaboration with your customer, embrace changing requirements, and deliver business value (production-ready software) to your customer early and regularly throughout the project.
