Introduction to Agile Business Management
In the Introduction to Agile Business Management section, we are going to learn to see Agile and traditional plan-driven project management principles and practices in a fresh new perspective as complementary to each other rather than competitive. We will then learn how to blend these two approaches in the right proportions to get the best of both worlds and create a hybrid approach to fit any given situation.
Mastering Agile Business Management
In the Mastering Agile Business Management section, we will dive deeper into understanding Agile from a business management perspective to develop the knowledge and skills to play an effective business leadership role in an Agile project as a Product Owner or position of equivalent responsibility. This requires a paradigm shift in thinking to focus on delivering business value instead of the traditional project emphasis on planning and control to achieve predictability. In order to develop this new perspective, we will explain: Lean Software Development and Value Stream Analysis as well as Kanban and Principles of Product Development Flow to optimize the efficiency of the product development process Value-driven Delivery, Customer-value Prioritization, and Agile Requirements Definition Practices to prioritize and maximize the business value of the overall solution. We will also explain Adaptive Planning, Rolling Wave Planning, and Management of Uncertainty in order to effectively manage projects in a dynamic and rapidly-changing environment that requires an emphasis on creativity and innovation.
