About this course:

Formerly called MGMT X 418.31C Agile Project Management I. This course provides the fundamentals of agile methodologies as the basis to an adaptive approach for project and product development and  delivery in a highly dynamic and fast-paced environment. Students will explore how agile trends and emerging practices with rolling wave tactics are different than predictive, waterfall scheduling models and traditional lifecycle development approaches. This course covers SCRUM and Kanban as the key and 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, as well as on-demand pull based approaches from a backlog as resources free up.
