Agile is one of the most misunderstood approaches to project management. Far from being a loose, free-for-all, it is a disciplined approach to managing projects where the final end point is not known at the beginning.

Overview

Agile project management is an approach that sees solutions evolve through collaboration over the life of the project.

Rigorous and accountable milestones occur at key points along the way, whilst the final outcomes of the project unfold as learning occurs and budgets allow. Although originally used in software development or IT projects, it is now embraced across a wide range of disciplines. This program explores the benefits and application of the Agile approach in the workplace.

Scrum is a popular and widely used process framework or set of practices for Agile development and this program links these two approaches.
