I’ve just launched a new course entitled “What Is the Future of Agile Project Management?” This is a very confusing topic for many project managers because the role of an Agile Project Manager in the real-world is not well-defined:
I frequently see questions from project managers asking like:
- What certification should I get?
- Should I become a Scrum Master?
It’s understandable that there is a lot of confusion about this because there is no defined role for a project manager in a typical Agile project at the team level. There are roles that a project manager can play in an Agile but:
- It may not be the typical, team-level project manager role,
- It does require a big shift in thinking for a project manager to adapt to an agile environment, and
- It’s a very different kind of “project management” that emphasizes creativity and innovation to maximize the value of the solution as well as some level of planning and control to achieve predictability
To fill this role, an Agile Project Manager has to learn how to blend Agile and traditional plan-driven project management principles and practices in the right proportions to fit any given situation and that is exactly what my training curriculum is designed to do.
This particular course is designed to help project managers understand the impact of Agile and Lean on the Project Management profession and on their own career paths and to develop a strategy to adapt to this new environment. The course is a little over an hour long and includes material on the impact of Agile and Lean on the future of project management as well as some real-world scenarios where an Agile Project Manager can provide a lot of value in an Agile/Scrum environment. It is designed to help project managers reinvigorate their careers into a very high-impact Agile Project Management role.
For a limited amount of time, I am offering this course for only $5 to anyone who would like to take the course and provide feedback. You can click on the link below to take advantage of this offer:
