Complex projects demand first-class management methods, the goal of which should be to enable the future vision to be achieved. AgilePgM goes one step further than this, however, and aims to drive continual gains, right from the early stages of the project. This secures competitive advantage and levers earlier and higher returns, or creates measuring points against which the progress of the project can be gauged. Other tried-and-trusted methods are also brought to light here, such as iterative procedures aimed at generating better adapted products, or the introduction of a certain leeway in decision-making to speed things up.
This course can integrate both agile and non-agile projects, irrespective of management methodology.
Previous experience in agile methods and structuring major projects is an advantage.
