Course Description

Wouldn't it be great if projects managed themselves once you got them started? But this isn't the case. Successful Agile project management involves adequate scheduling and monitoring, which helps identify any adjustments that need to be made, and ensures effective time management.
In this course, you'll learn about managing projects with Agile project scheduling activities like setting work in progress limits and implementing project buffers. This course also covers recommended project time management processes for monitoring and tracking progress at both the iteration and project levels. This course also introduces you to key risk management and product quality, testing, and integration strategies you can use when managing Agile projects to help ensure your project creates and maintains the intended value as it progresses.
This course is one of a series in the Skillsoft learning path that covers the objectives for the PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP)® exam. PMI-ACP is a registered mark of the Project Management Institute, Inc.
