Don’t get left behind…

The world of project and programme management has been evolving over recent years, with agile methods and practices become increasingly popular as organisations seek to respond faster and more effectively to ever-increasing change initiatives.

About this Course

AgilePgM® provides programme managers with a disciplined but flexible agile approach to the management of transformational organizational change, allowing for iterative and incremental delivery of outputs and benefits.

The governance model, contained within the guidance, ensures a programme will capture its vision, whilst empowering teams to work without undue interference. Built on firm foundations, the programme can evolve and react to business change in our increasingly dynamic world.

This workshop will enable you to:
