First Steps towards Agility; Implementing Agile Practices in Waterfall Environments - 2018804

Saturday, July 28, 2018
8:00am to 4:00pm

Earn 8 PDUs!

Both traditional (Waterfall) methodology and Agile methodology have pros and cons and can be effective ways to structure a project. For teams that are not practicing Agile, there are still Agile practices that can benefit them. Daily standups, retrospectives, and many other key Agile practices and ceremonies can benefit even a Waterfall team. For many, the most arduous part of transitioning to Agile in a waterfall environment happens at the beginning—in the uncertainty of how to put the initiative into motion.

In this seminar, strategies and best practices to begin incorporating Agile practices are revealed. Real-world experiences working with existing project teams to begin incorporating Agile practices and ceremonies are shared. By initiating practices, teams start to understand Agile principles and mindset and become better prepared to take the next steps on their Agile journey. Specific Agile practices, and how to adapt each one to a traditional environment, are covered.

Attendees will work on individual and group exercises, and leave the course with the knowledge and skills they need to enhance their project delivery capability.

Course objectives:

After completing the course, you will be able to
1. Develop a strategy to introduce Agile in their organizations.
2. Understand the first steps to take toward becoming Agile.
3. Learn Agile practices that can be utilized by a Waterfall team.

This course is ideal for project/program managers, PMO leaders, and project team members who have been managing/leading projects and are looking for agile techniques to strengthen their project management and improve their teams’ outcomes.
