Agile for the Uninitiated: How to Get Started with Agile Project Management

Registration for this course is now closed.

Curious about Agile? It’s not just for software developers anymore. Project teams across many industries are turning to agile frameworks to get the right work done well.

This virtual workshop will teach you the basics of agile—where it came from, what it looks like, and how individuals and teams are using its principles to improve the way they work and deliver projects.

In these two half-day live virtual sessions, project managers of all levels will learn how to:

  • Apply the “Agile Manifesto” and principles to project work
  • Practice Scrum and Kanban, two of the most widely adapted agile frameworks in the world
  • Assess whether Agile is an appropriate fit for your projects
  • Distinguish between traditional and agile approaches, including key differences between the role of a traditional project manager and typical agile roles
  • Address common challenges in implementing or transitioning to agile in your organization

Our Training Commitment to You

We are confident you’ll love our virtual learning experiences! Just like a physical classroom, you’ll see and speak to your instructor, participate in discussions and small group activities, and follow along in a writable PDF workbook so you can take notes and reference them later. Your instructor will also be available to you before, during, and after the course to answer questions, PLUS you’ll get access to electronic copies of all the tools or documents we talk about in the class.

The Persimmon Group uses Zoom for all learning events, with multiple security protocols in place to ensure a safe and private event. Zoom not only provides the most interactive features for our classes but also allows you to participate on the web (without downloading additional software) if desired.
