Globally, organisations are adopting agile principles to optimise project delivery and efficiency in the face of rapidly changing conditions.
In this unit, students learn the fundamentals of agile project management (APM) as well as the scrum methodology for managing change projects in dynamic settings. Students will contrast agile and waterfall, learn where APM is most applicable and useful, and assess how agile is leveraged to successfully implement projects on time with an explicit focus on stakeholder requirements.
Students will also consider alternative ways of framing change initiatives either as incremental or transformational events within an organisation to foster new ways of thinking. These effective project management skills prepare them to successfully lead agile project teams, enabling their teams to deliver what their customers want faster and with better quality than traditional project management methods.
