Recent high-profile IT project failures have shown that traditional project management isn’t working, with regularly missed deadlines, budget overruns, and a failure to deliver what users actually need. Agile methodology has shown it stands a much greater chance of success. More and more organisations, including governments and some of the world’s biggest companies, are moving to adopt it. In this course, we cut past the evangelism that exists around Agile, and instead focus on real-world practical training that you can put into action.
