This course focuses on exploring the key principles of successful project management and incorporates a number of easy to apply, effective tools and techniques that, when applied in the workplace, will allow you to become more confident and competent in managing a project.

Training is designed to clarify and explain the basic aspects of Agile project management in order for participants to gain confidence in their project environment. It will help you to recognise the key aspects of a project and the importance of your role within it.

Agile Project Management is a new, flexible way of managing projects. Agile allows projects to adjust to changing requirements and timescales, and quickly respond and adjust a project based on customer feedback. Agile Project Management is perfect for projects with constantly changing requirements, for example software or website development, and allows for and embraces change throughout the project.
