The concept of Agile Project Management is very rapidly evolving and will have a significant impact on the project management profession; however, we are in the early stages of that transformation and there is a lot of confusion about what impact it has on project managers. This course will help you unravel a lot of the confusion that exists; develop a totally new perspective to see both Agile and traditional project management principles and practices in a new light as complementary to each other rather than competitive; and learn to develop an adaptive approach to project management to blend those principles and practices together in the right proportions to fit any situation.

Special Note:

This course is part of an overall curriculum that is designed around helping students develop the skills required for a high-impact Agile Project Management role.  Most students will want to take the complete curriculum rather than individual courses.  The complete curriculum should be taken in the following order:

  2. Agile PM 102 - What's the Future of Agile Project Management?

  3. Agile PM 201 - Understanding Agile at a Deeper Level

  4. Agile PM 202 - Introduction to Agile Project Management

  5. Agile PM 301 - Mastering Agile Project Management

  6. Agile PM 401 - Advanced Agile Project Management

  7. Agile PM 402 - Enterprise-level Agile Project Management

Agile versus Waterfall Recap Quiz
7 questions

Agile has huge potential benefits but it is not a solution to every problem. Learning to choose the right approach to fit a project can be a difficult decision and it is often not a simple, binary either-or decision between Agile and Waterfall. Many times it requires a blend of those two approaches to fit a given situation.

In this lecture, we'll discuss a couple of examples of why an Agile (or adaptive) approach makes the most sense in some situations and a Waterfall (or plan-driven) approach makes more sense in other situations. Many times it is not a binary choice between two extremes and requires blending an approach to fit the situation.

The key point is that rather than force-fitting a project to some kind of canned, “textbook” methodology, a better solution is to go in the other direction and fit the methodology (or combination of methodologies) to the project. It takes more skill to do that – it requires knowledge of a broader range of methodologies and a deeper understanding of the principles behind the methodologies to know how to blend them together to fit a given situation.
