Summary

Your organization will still need people with project management competencies even when it starts its Agile journey. The classic project manager can fruitfully take on an Agile role. But it requires that you understand the mind-set behind the Agile approach and learn new techniques.

In this course, we map terms and concepts in the classic project management models to the corresponding ones in Agile. Often there is not a one-to-one which can cause challenges for a traditional project manager and to organizations in general. We also discuss the preconditions for using an Agile approach.

Then we cover the typical new Agile roles and what the responsibilities are. In Agile the Project Manager role does not exist, but there still is a need for similar competencies. We will discuss which Agile functions take over the various responsibilities of a classic project manager.

Furthermore, based on a well-known personality model, we will discuss what personality types fit with the different Agile roles – and where the best fit is for you.

The course fee includes a 30-minutes personal coaching session with one of the trainers.
