PMGT3612: Agile Project Management

Agile project methodologies, were initially developed for small IT projects and gained popularity following the publication of the Agile Manifesto. With the demand for shorter delivery timescales and organisational agility, the popularity of agile approaches has rapidly increased across industries and project scales. This Unit provides students with a grounding in the SCRUM methodology, one of the most widely recognised approaches to Agile, leading to an option for industry certification.
