Agile Project Management

Kanban, Scrum, Lean & Co - using the best of the agile worlds

Many people do not know that agile project management is very usable far beyond software projects. All classic projects also benefit from agile methods: Projects become more flexible, faster and easier if the appropriate elements are selected and used from the agile methods. We show you how to use the best of the agile worlds for your projects! Make your projects more agile!

SEMINAR OBJECTIVES

In this seminar you will quickly learn many useful, agile methods and principles and practice their implementation in your own projects. You know the favorable conditions for agile projects and know which agile method or element you can use profitably. This makes your projects more flexible, easier and noticeably faster. In the seminar you will also learn more about individual methods such as Scrum or Kanban and receive the know-how to effectively combine these with your previous project management. This not only gives you more satisfied customers, but also more motivated employees in your projects.

Our seminar is also very agile: You tell us what is important to you and we adapt the course of the seminar to your needs. Thus, we focus on the topics that are most beneficial to you and you experience first-hand what agile cooperation means. With our practical experience you get a lot of concrete tips for the implementation of agile project management methods in your daily project work. We practice the methods you have learned on your current projects and discuss their implementation in the company together with other participants and the trainer.
