Take two full days to immerse yourself in agile project management! Start by learning Scrum and DSDM, and then take it up a notch by drawing the "big picture," based on real-world implementation! Find out how your PMP® certification and the PMBOK® Guide align with state-of-the-art agile principles and practices so you can position yourself for the demands of the creative economy. Project managers with knowledge in traditional as well as agile approaches have a sought-after skill set, and why is this? Because companies seek people who understand the big picture and can fit the process to the needs of the project and not the other way around.
Join us, and together, we'll take an all-encompassing look at agile approaches and learn how they influence modern project management. We'll take a pragmatic approach to "going agile," based on real-world experiences, because today's business world requires efficient, streamlined project management and places a premium on innovation, creativity, teamwork and flexibility.
This program is not based on theory but on actual agile rollouts the instructor has led in organizations around the world, including India, Brazil, Europe and throughout the United States. Do not miss this event!
