Introduction to Agile Project Management

The Agile mindset focuses on the delivery of business value through collaboration, continuous improvement, and scope flexibility to create products that meet customer needs. Agile processes arose as an approach to software development projects in the 1990s; however, today, it is used in other industries for managing the development of new products and services.

Scrum is an agile framework that follows an iterative and incremental approach for the delivery of products and services which meet business goals. It is based on frequent feedback from customers and collaborative work that allows teams to respond fast, efficiently, and effectively to change. It can be applied to projects from several types of industries.

In this webinar, we will introduce the concepts, principles, and values of Agile Project Management and Scrum. We will show how Agile processes work by using some examples.
