PDD - Agile Essentials - NWV

WV/OV Chapter is proud to present a Professional Development Day opportunity in Bridgeport, West Virginia, with 7 PDU's awarded (2 in the Leadership Talent Triangle Category, and 5 in the Technical Project Management Category)!  Cost of $500 per person for this unique event includes all materials, refreshments, and lunch.

This event repeats the sold-out presentation given earlier in the spring at a PDD event held in Charleston, WV, which was very well received.

Agile Essentials is a one-day course that will explore the key concepts and components of Agile software development.  Per the Standish Group, Agile projects are three times more likely to be successful than traditional waterfall projects.  Agile represents a new way of working and organizing projects and project teams.

This course will provide an overview of the Agile landscape and provide a working understanding of common practices.  The students will participate in several hands-on exercises to reinforce the concepts presented in the class.

Intended audience:  Both business and technology professionals who want to understand the transformational opportunities of Agile will benefit from this course, including:

  • Project Managers
  • Business users and managers involved in software projects
  • Technology managers interested in transforming their teams
  • Technology team members interested in understanding Agile development methods

Course objectives: At the end of this course, participants will:

  • Appreciate the values and principles of the Agile Manifesto
  • Understand the key components of Agile development methodologies
  • See the value of Agile practices through hands-on exercise
  • Learn how to use Kanban boards to manage the flow of work
  • Recognize the roles and ceremonies of Scrum

This professional development day will include 7 contact hours during the day of the event, qualifying for 2 hours of PDUs provided in the PMI Talent Triangle Leadership category and 5 hours of PDUs in the Technical Project Management category.
