Iterative and Agile Project Management (UMTIT281)   Register Online

Currently, 40% of the content of the PMP exam is oriented toward agile project management (PM) theory and practice, with 60% covering the more traditional predictive approach that has dominated PM thinking for decades. Agile and Iterative Project Management offers students insights into agile practices that, through methodologies such as Scrum, Kanban, XP and RAD, put motivated people, flexibility, communication, and self-management at the heart of the project development effort. The course does not reject the traditional predictive approach, but demonstrates how mastery of predictive and agile methods when taken together can lead to superior project performance.


After completing this course, students will have a thorough understanding of the rationale underlying and methodologies supporting iterative and agile project management. They will know what approaches to take to bridge the technology-business gap, and will understand how to produce more quickly than with traditional techniques.
