This AMS course provides a deep insight to the skills, tools, and techniques associated with Agile Project Management, and can be used as part of a progressive curricular, standalone learning experience, or team up-skilling initiative. Agile Project Management is a key skill in today’s progressive organizations. Many organizations are adopting Agile approaches for various project types, yet a few successful projects (usually small projects) do not make a successful Agile enterprise. Also, Agile approaches are not meant for each and every project in the organization’s portfolio. This course will provide insight to the Agile selection criteria and how to blend various project execution strategies within your portfolio. We will discuss and dissect a number of topics including Agile integration, project organization, scaling Agile to projects of different types and sizes, culture, governance, portfolio alignment, Agile and Program Management, and Strategic Implications of Agile adoption. Participants will enhance their experience by interacting with imbedded scenarios, participating in table exercises, building a personal action plan, and sharing with their peers.
