The second part of the Agile Project Management course content revisits the concepts of Value Driven Delivery, Stakeholder Engagement and Adaptive Planning and introduces elements on Team Effectiveness, Problem Detection and Resolution and Continuous Improvement.
This course is delivered in four main parts, each aligned to the main learning goals. Each part of this course has several sub-modules and activities. The course relies upon group activities to explore and embed learning.
A good portion of the course will be spent involved in learning activities and discussing the lessons extracted from them. We expect participants to work together in group activities and be active in discussions throughout the course. Participants are encouraged to inject stories from their own experience, and to explore through discussion how Agile practices could help their current work situation.
The course facilitator will evaluate participant learning in the context of the group activities and the related discussions, and through a questionnaire at the close of the course. Any learning gaps identified at the close of the course will be addressed along the course, or in a closing Q&A session.
