About the course

Do you have a dynamic working day where you need to deliver projects on time? With the course Agile Project Management, you will learn how to create value for your clients – faster and cheaper – with a thriving team, and continue to deliver on time. The Agile On Time method is designed for teams that share the same location and that are geographically distributed.

During the course, we focus on how to facilitate and conduct agile projects from beginning to end, and how to adapt the method from one project to another.

The method has a strong focus on practicalities and is based on:

  • The globally leading approach within agile project management – Agile PM® from Agile Business Consortium.
  •  
  • Positive psychology that puts a focus on well-being.

Agile On Time can be used:

  • In both simple and very complicated and/or complex projects.
  • When you are together physically or are geographically distributed.
  • With only a few and up to more than 100 project participants.
  • Across industries.
  • Within the same organisation or with several business partners.

Contents
At the course we work with:

  • Agile fundamentals and applications.
  • Which agile frameworks are designed to do what, and how they can coexist.
  • Structuring, framing, and organising the project.
  • Compiling user needs.
  • Facilitating specification workshops.
  • Facilitating two-level planning – both for the entire building phase and for the coming sprint/iteration.
  • Facilitating the building phase in the form of sprints/iterations and likewise shifts. Relating models and theory to your practice.

 Benefits for the course participant
After completing the course each participant will be able to:

  • Deliver projects on time – or ahead of time.
  • Frame and structure
  • Create structured data that can be used quickly and efficiently to adjust the project deliverable in collaboration with the steering group, the client, the supplier, and others influencing the project’s value creation.
  • Create better results – and faster.
  • Work in a way that makes job satisfaction and energy level come together month after month.
  • Ensure learning during the entirety of the
  • Create transparency in the project.
  • Facilitate good collaboration across organisations, divisions, and cultures.
  • Conduct projects online.

Benefits for the company

  • Opportunity to reuse specifications from one project to another similar project. We have seen a reduction in time of up to 80% of the specification work.
  • New employees become adept at implementing project deliverables.
  • Quicker project completion by less re-work.
  • Value creation early on in the building phase. This provides the company with the flexibility to redeploy employees if priorities change.
  • Implementing this agile project model becomes manageable if the company already has a stage-gate project model.
  • A joint project approach to be used in large parts of the company.
  • When you choose this project approach in the collaboration with your suppliers, the company’s employees tend to be more familiar with the project approach than the changing suppliers. This increases job satisfaction and ensures the necessary insight into the project’s course.

Target group
The course is aimed at project managers, team leaders, Scrum Masters, Product Owners, project participants, PMO members, mid-level managers, and others, who wish to learn how to carry through projects on time.

Teaching method
The course is conducted by using blended learning. Before the course starts, we ask the participants to watch around three hours of educational videos. The videos take you from start to finish in the project. The video preparation enables us to spend the course hours focusing on practical case exercises, relating to actual daily work, and finally reflection. This teaching method increases learning significantly compared to the traditional course learning.

All teaching is aimed at being feasible online. This has two advantages:

  1. You learn how to conduct projects online during the course.
  2. You can choose whether you wish to participate in the course in person or online. We use top-of-the-line conference equipment to ensure our online participants an optimal experience.

Free e-learning
Before the course, all participants receive free access to a total of 6-7 hours of educational videos complete with exercises, and when the course is finished, the participants keep this free access to the same videos for 30 days.
