Agile management systems break work into smaller iterative processes to create a management style that is, as its name suggests, quickly adaptable to sudden changes.

Agile Project Management originally emerged in the software and IT development worlds. In these fields of rapidly exploding growth, a comprehensive management plan developed one month might be obsolete the next. Agile presented a solution to this climate of rapid change.

Yet agile methodologies were never designed to be restricted to just software and IT development. From its very inception, Agile was seen as a set of management styles that had the potential to improve operations in an array of industries, projects, and processes. These methodologies in management first help us to outline a project's large goals at a strategic level, and then define how to deliver production-ready results at a tactical level. Doing so can successfully help companies navigate the depth of change that often challenges enterprise projects regardless of industry. 

In this 3-course program, you’ll learn how to apply agile thinking, tools, and techniques to the change-management process for projects of all sizes.
