Agile BM 201 – Mastering Agile Business Management

Mastering Agile Business Management

Course Summary

Mastering Agile Business Management is an online training course that is designed to provide a much deeper understanding of how to effectively lead Agile/Scrum projects for anyone in a Product Owner role or in an equivalent level of business responsibility. The Product Owner role in Agile is not well understood and many business managers who are assigned to perform that role are not well-prepared for it. This course includes material on:

  • Agile Values and Principles
  • Design Thinking, Systems Thinking, and Complex Adaptive Systems
  • Kanban and Managing Flow in Agile Projects
  • Lean Software Development, Value Stream Analysis, and Value-driven Delivery
  • Adaptive Planning and Agile Requirements Definition Practices
  • Agile Risk Management, Metrcis, and Stakeholder Management

Intended Audience

he primary audience for this course is Agile/Scrum Product Owners who are responsible for leading Agile Projects from a business perspective. The Product Owner role in Agile is a very demanding role. The Product Owner in Agile is the role primarily responsible for the success or failure of the project from a business perspective and is often known as “The CEO of the project”. Many existting courses for Product Owners such as Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) are primarily focused on the basic “mechanics” of how to do Scrum. This course goes well beyond that to provide a much deeper understanding of how to be an effective Agile Product Owner.

In addition to the Product Owner role, this course will also appeal to:

  1. Business Analysts – who work in an Agile environment and need to optimize their skills to provide a high level of value in that environment
  2. Business Sponsors – who want to learn more about Agile Project Management in order to provide more effective leadership for the initiatives that they are responsible for

Student Reviews

  • “Very well done! A refreshingly pragmatic approach which takes the stress out of the thought of turning one’s organization upside down to transform it. A lot of material covered in a little bit of time in a very concise but fulfilling manner.”
  • “Chuck Cobb’s presentation Agile Project Management Overview for Executives was informative. I found the course helped reveal misconceptions and stereotypes regarding Agile Project Management. In his instructional course, he helps break down key differences between agile and waterfall project management. He outlines the benefits of agile project management. He once again clearly and concisely communicates in a way that is easy to follow. I look forward to following additional courses in the future.”
  • “As a senior project manager that deals with executives and their project management “likes and dislikes” on a daily basis I found this overview spot-on. From lecture 1 through 7 Chuck addresses most of the issues that I quite often experience in getting executive to understand the “symbiotic” relationship between Agile and Plan-driven project management.””This course is for project managers and executives alike, and after completion you’ll have a clear understanding of how Agile and traditional plan-driven approaches can be complementary rather than competitive.”
  • ” This was an excellent course, as I was looking to gain knowledge on applying Agile processes at the Enterprise level. I especially liked the sections on project governance, choosing the right approach, developing and implementaton plan, and the case studies.”
