With the widespread adoption of agile project delivery methods within our organizations, project teams and project managers work in new, innovative ways to avoid waste and to be more flexible to changes raised during the project. Most agile training focuses on the project managers, sponsor or client business-unit representative, and the people on the team designing and building the deliverables. But where does that leave functional and middle managers? How does their role change when people in their departments are working on agile projects?
This half-day course helps functional and middle managers understand how the use of agile within their departments will affect them, how they need to behave differently, and the benefits to be achieved by doing so. It assumes that participants have no prior knowledge of agile delivery methods.
Participants attending this session will learn:
This course is aimed at all functional and middle managers &emdash; not project managers or project sponsors who are addressed via other courses.
There are no preprequsites for this course.
Participants in this course receive a course workbook including printouts of all course presentation materials and The Agile Glossary.
