The main objective is to introduce delegates to the methodology of Agile Project Management (APM). Participants will learn to apply the most important tools and methods of APM and will take away a set of key success factors for successful agile projects.APM involves an approach to complete projects in an iterative way by promoting communication and reflection amongst the project team and facilitating rapid and flexible response to change.
