Agile is an effective framework that’s transforming how organisations operate and deliver value to their customers. With the demand for Agile professionals growing, this course will provide you with the skills to successfully manage digital projects by employing the Agile mindset, tools, and processes. Agile methods integrate planning with execution, allowing an organisation to create a working mindset that helps a team respond effectively to changing requirements.

Building on existing Agile and project management knowledge, you’ll tie these two skillsets together and develop the capabilities to effectively plan, deliver, and measure successful projects using Agile. You will learn from leading Agile technology consultancy, Thoughtworks, and get insights from large, successful businesses in Australia to really distinguish between best project management practices with Agile and delivering value.
