In an agile environment, the dynamics of a Project Manager become less defined, this is because more focus is put on team collaboration rather than hierarchical leadership. As a result, in the agile world, the typical functions that a Project Manager held are now distributed within the team. Within this workshop, learn how to transition into an Agile Project Manager and how to remain competitive.

What you will learn in this workshop: 

  • The benefits of using Agile in Project Management and why
  • How to shift the mindset to include customer collaboration throughout and getting working software rather than comprehensive documentation
  • How to respond to continuous change rather than a linear roadmap
  • A method of bringing an agile methodology to a traditionally waterfall team
