Exploring Agile Project Management for Manufacturing Businesses


Are you a manufacturing business, looking for ways to improve your project management skills?

This workshop is designed for Manufacturing businesses to explore how Agile project management tools can be used to improve the management of your projects. Created for SME leaders, operations managers, or design team leaders to assist you in addressing project delivery challenges.

Darren Dalcher, leader of the National Centre for Project Management and Professor in Strategic Project Management at Lancaster University, will deliver this one day workshop. Darren has extensive experience in industrial technology projects, and is a recognised leader and innovator in practical project management training for industry. He has been named by the Association for Project Management as one of the top 10 influential experts in Project Management, and voted Project Magazine’s Academic of the Year for his contribution to “integrating and weaving academic work with practice”


What will I get from the day?

This interactive workshop will:

  • Help you to understand agile and what it is best used for.

  • Understand the different “flavours” of agile and explore what would work best for your SME.

  • Explore how these might be applied in your business, and hear case studies of how agile has been effectively applied in a manufacturing context.

  • Develop a plan to appropriately apply agile into your own business.

As a Lancashire manufacturing SME, you know all too well the challenges of delivering multiple projects and products where early customer satisfaction and changing requirements are key. You also know that these are key to your business productivity and success. This one-day workshop will invigorate the delivery of your business by exploring how Agile project management tools can help you to do just that.
