About this course:

The use of Agile is quickly becoming the new norm. This course covers SCRUM and Kanban as the most popular agile and lean processes for enabling fast delivery of projects while shifting culture to teamwork, collaboration, and continuous improvement. Students will gain the skills to apply the agile steps to their projects by practicing with iterative and incremental scheduling techniques and SPRINTS. Students explore how agile trends and emerging practices are different than predictive, waterfall scheduling models and traditional life cycle development approaches. This course meets the education training hours and helps students gain knowledge towards the PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP)® certification. It also provides foundational knowledge for the Certified Scrum Professional–ScrumMaster (CSP-SM)® and Professional Scrum Master (PSM)® certifications. In addition, this course helps students gain knowledge towards the PMP® Exam by PMI® and qualifies for the required 35 Contact Hours or PDU’s to apply for or maintain an existing PMP® certification.
