Agile PM (Not Just for IT)
with Lee R. Lambert, PMP, CEO
Are YOU an “Agile” Project Management Professional??
Agile is NOT just for Software Projects!!
Agile PM has caught the attention of everyone in the Software Development field—business leaders, customers/users and developers. The most important challenge is how to understand and utilize this powerful concept in order to realize more efficient ways of managing change on ALL types of projects—NOT just Software Projects. The question becomes what exactly is the secret to Agile PM and how is it different/better than traditional approaches? In order to become an “Agile” Project Management Professional one must understand the skills and competencies required to capitalize on the strengths and advantages of an “Agile” approach to managing every project. The Agile methodology empowers the Team to create an evolving solution, which changes the role of the PM to that of a Leader much more than a Manager. This course will explore the core concepts and business value of an Agile methodology, while carefully examining how simple adaptations of the concepts and their associated improvement in communications will lead to improved project delivery across the organizational framework for EVERY project type.
