Agile Project Management Workshop

March 13 & 15 (Tuesday & Thursday)

At Grand Circus Detroit

Delivering projects in an iterative and incremental (aka agile) fashion is not some fly by night fad. As such, the approaches taken to managing today’s projects are different than traditional ones. This workshop aims to give people an understanding of different agile frameworks (Scrum and Kanban), project planning, estimation methods, forecasting techniques, what gives projects the best chance at success and how agile project management fits into all of this. This will be done through explanation, discussion, real-life examples and hands-on LEGO exercises. Participants will leave with a deeper understanding of agile frameworks, ways to estimate/forecast and the mechanics of managing/facilitating agile projects.
