Project management is one of the most highly sought-after skill sets in today’s job market. It's at the center of what organizations must do—enable strategy, develop and deliver products and services, improve internal operations, enhance the bottom line, and above all, create delightful customer experiences.

Agile is quickly becoming the preferred project management paradigm. It emphasizes the ability to deliver value to organizations and customers quickly, to recalibrate scope and priorities frequently, and to reduce project management overhead. Agile teams are highly collaborative and constantly work to improve team performance.

While Agile is typically associated with software development and product development, it can be much more. With roots in process and total quality management (TQM), it has become a key model for process management, product management, and IT management.

This course will survey Agile’s history, applications, and most commonly utilized frameworks—Lean Agile, Kanban, Scrum, Extreme Programming, and DevOps. It will also consider how to adopt and scale Agile in the enterprise. In addition, it will compare Agile, traditional, and hybrid project management. Whether you are a project manager or someone who depends on successful project delivery, improving your project management skills will help you in your current role and lay the foundation for career advancement.

This is the second course of the two-course series on project management. The first course, “Fundamentals of Project Management,” was taught in Winter 2023. Students who complete “Fundamentals of Agile Project Management” will satisfy the training requirements for the PMI Agile Certified Practitioner exam. Completion of the two courses will also satisfy the Project Management Institute’s training requirement for its Project Management Professional (PMP) exam. While these courses build upon one another, each course can be taken independently as well.
