What is Agile? Choosing an appropriate agile approach.
To stay relevant, businesses need to quickly adapt to change. Traditional project management methodologies look to understand and document the change before moving to implementation. However, this process can be time-consuming which leads to failed projects. Agile methodologies offer the tools and frameworks needed to quickly implement change by building incremental business value.
Although it was developed for software development, agile is now widely used across the business with successful results.
Agile Project Management offers a set of frameworks that enables delegates to successfully deliver projects in a fast-paced business environment.

I found the Agile Project Management Foundation and Practitioner course I took both engaging and insightful. There being other professional delegates on the course made for real world examples that brought to light the theory. The in person classes permitted live questions and queries to be worked through, helping with explanations. The tutors know what they're talking about and were extremely patient!
