Agile projects cope with a business environment filled with constant change through enhanced communication, close collaboration between project stakeholders, iterative development, adaptive planning and teams that are largely self-organizing. Scrum is the most widely-used approach for conducting agile projects. This class enables participants to learn and practice Agile Project Management principles and methods and to adapt them to individual business environments. Scrum practices are discussed in detail, including the concept of self-organizing teams, Scrum roles (including Scrum Master and Project Owner) sprint planning tracking and tools for defining and measuring progress (the definition of "done"). The skills needed to build and foster effective communication, collaboration and accountability, within cross-functional teams are stressed. Participants involved with PMI and the Project Management Institute's Project Management Professional, PMP program, are awarded eight PDUs or "Contact Hours." PDU's earned here are also approved by PMI to be used toward the ACP, Agile Certified Practitioner, credential. Total Systems Education's PMI Global Registered Education Provider Code is 1270. The workshop also reinforces and complies with the IIBA BABOK, Business Analysis Body of Knowledge. Total Systems Education's Endorsed Education Provider number is E112.
