Implementing Agile at an enterprise level has a number of challenges and takes a lot of skill. This course will help you lead large, complex enterprise-level projects and align an Agile approach with a company’s business at an enterprise level.
Agile has been widely used with relatively simple, small, single-team projects. One of the most significant areas of evolution in Agile over recent years has been to scale Agile to large, complex enterprise level projects and to learn how to blend an Agile approach with a company’s business at an enterprise level. In this course, Understanding Enterprise-level Agile Implementation and Agile Frameworks, you'll acquire some very important Agile skills that bridge the gap from single-team to enterprise-level projects. First, you'll learn the differences when applying Agile at an enterprise-level versus smaller teams, and what are some of the major challenges to overcome. Then, you'll explore how to scale Agile projects for large, complex projects involving multiple teams. Finally, you'll discover what enterprise-level Agile frameworks are available to create a well-integrated enterprise-level management approach. When you're finished with this course, you will have a good foundation of knowledge to know how to use these skills to take a leadership role in an enterprise-level Agile project and/or choose an enterprise-level Agile framework to create an enterprise-level Agile management approach.

Course Overview Hi, my name is Chuck Cobb. I'm the author of the Project Managers Guide to Mastering Agile. That will be the third book I've published to date on Agile Project Management, and I've also published two earlier books on business excellence. There are some very significant challenges associated with applying Agile at an enterprise level and scaling Agile to large, complex projects involving multiple teams. There are some frameworks, such as the Scaled Agile Framework that might be helpful, but it takes a lot of skill to apply those frameworks successfully. Here's an overview of the modules in this course, we're going to start with an in‑depth discussion of what's different about Agile at an enterprise level. Then we're going to discuss some of the enterprise‑level Agile frameworks that are being used to apply Agile to a business at an enterprise level. This course is part of an overall curriculum for Agile business management that consists of three learning paths. This course is the first of two courses in the Enterprise‑level Agile Business Management learning path. The goal of this learning path is to help prepare business people to take a leadership role in successfully leading large, complex, enterprise‑level projects and successfully applying an Agile approach to their business at an enterprise level. I hope you will join me on this journey to learn Agile business management with the Understanding Enterprise‑level Agile Implementation and Agile Frameworks course at Pluralsight.
