Want to learn more? Here’s everything you need to know.
What is Agile Project Management?
Agile project management is a modern approach to project management which often uses a non-linear process that has a greater focus on collaboration and teamwork, rather than a strict schedule of deadlines and activities. The idea of Agile PM is to break down larger projects into smaller and manageable tasks that correspond to the product life cycle.
Agile was originally created for software development, but it has been adapted to fit a wider range of teams and it’s clear why. Organisations and teams that adopt key Agile methods will be better equipped for change, have a stronger focus on service delivery and optimise workflow in a more effective and efficient way.
Why is it Useful in the Public Sector?
AgilePM is becoming widely used by the public sector to run projects in more complex situations, develop higher quality service delivery and gain greater control and flexibility over multiple projects.
Implementing Agile methods also helps to create an environment for continuous improvement, which is something the public sector can greatly benefit from as it helps to put “lessons learnt” into future decision-making.
Although some public sector organisations have more predetermined regulations and hierarchical organisation than others, it is possible to implement Agile methodologies in more bureaucratised organisations such as government departments.
Who can actually benefit from using Agile Project Management Methodologies?
- Teams that rely on fast feedback before taking the next step
- Teams with various independent tasks but require frequent communication to succeed
- Teams working closely with customers or services users
- Teams handling fast-changing deadlines and deliverables
Why Should I Attend an Agile Project Management Training Course?
Our Agile Project Management Foundation Level with Practitioner (AgilePM) training course has been designed to give you an extensive breakdown of the key principles of AgilePM, Agile vs. Waterfall approaches, how AgilePM differs from traditional methodologies such as PRINCE2, when to use Agile and how to prepare for success.
Learning Agile can help you break down traditional boundaries to Project Management, which gives you and your organisation the opportunity to look for better and more efficient ways of doing things. It can also give you the chance to experiment in your organisation and give your employees greater flexibility when it comes to project authority.
This course is led by Project Management Consultant and AgilePM accredited trainer, Steve Browne, who has been involved with project management since 1980 through working with various clients including British Airways, the Environment Agency and the Department for Work and Pensions and many more.
