BP161 Project Management in an Agile Environment
Agile methods emerged from software development and have been applied increasingly to both IT and non-IT projects in recent years. Meanwhile, manufacturing companies have begun extending their lean programs to encompass projects and project management. How does lean apply to project management? What does it mean to be an agile project manager? What are the most important skills for success in an agile environment? Participants examine situations where traditional project management methods work effectively and circumstances where conventional techniques may fall short, review advances in project management techniques based on lean and agile principles, and learn to capitalize on the variability inherent in projects in order to reduce risks and deliver greater benefits.
