Online Webinar Presented by The Agilista PM
Duration: 1 Hour Credits: 1 PDU Category C – Free PDU
Agile was once considered a fad by project management professionals.
Every project manager can successfully integrate agile in a waterfall environment to improve project predictability, cost effectiveness and ultimately project and professional success.
In the 10 years since the agile manifesto was written agile has matured; it has moved from being a core methodology and from small software companies to the point where it is used, to some extent, in a majority of enterprise organizations today.
Agile isn’t a silver bullet for every context though and agile methods need to adapt to the changing contexts of the enterprise.
This webinar will examine how project managers can successfully apply Agile to their projects in an enterprise context.
