Agile PM 101 – Learn the Truth About Agile versus Waterfall

Learn to See Agile and Waterfall in a Fresh, New Perspective as Complementary Rather Than Competitive

Created by Agile Project Management Academy - Chuck Cobb - Author of The Project Manager's Guide to Mastering Agile

"]

Students: 108119, Price: Free

Important:
This course is part of an integrated, university-level curriculum of seven courses (See details below).  This course is the first course in that series.

Course Statistics:

  • Over 125,000 students in my courses!

  • Over 7,000 5-star reviews in my courses!

Earn PDU's: Students who complete this course are eligible to receive 0.75 PDU's in PMI continuing education credits.  Instructions for claiming PDU's are provided with the last lesson in the course.

Qualify for PMI-ACP Certification:  Completion of all seven courses in this series will meet the requirement for 21 hours of training to qualify for PMI-ACP certification.

Course Summary:

Learn to see Agile and traditional plan-driven project management principles and practices in a fresh new perspective as complementary to each other rather than competitive in order to get the best of these two worlds!

Many businesses and project managers are faced with a choice of choosing a traditional plan-driven approach (or what is sometimes called “Waterfall") or a more Agile approach for critical projects which can be a very important decision with significant business impact but there are many stereotypes and misconceptions that exist about both “Agile" and “Waterfall" that can be very confusing and misleading.  Many people see this as a binary and mutually-exclusive choice between two extremes and attempt to force-fit projects to one of these two approaches when the right solution is to go in the other direction and fit the approach to the project.

Since this is such a critical decision that has such a big impact, it's very important to get past these stereotypes and misconceptions, develop a clear objective understanding of what it means (or doesn't mean) when people talk about "Agile versus Waterfall".

Special Note:

This course is part of an overall curriculum that is designed around helping students develop the skills required for a high-impact Agile Project Management role.  Most students will want to take the complete curriculum rather than individual courses.  The complete curriculum should be taken in the following order:

  3. Agile PM 201 - Understanding Agile at a Deeper Level

Change Agility in the Workplace: Become a Change Agent

Become an agent of change by adopting the agility and resilience skills required in the evolving modern workplace.

Created by Shelley Osborne - Learning & Development Expert, Ed Tech Evangelist

"]

Students: 31066, Price: Free

NOTE: We originally built this course with the intention of addressing normal workplace change. However, with the spread of COVID-19, the normal workplace itself is changing. We wanted to get this course out sooner than planned as we feel the strategies and techniques included will help you better face the unprecedented change the world is going through now.

Change can be hard. Change is also inevitable and necessary. In order to successfully grow as a company, a team, or an individual, we must be able to adapt to change and persevere through the good, the bad, and the ugly. Easier said than done, right? This course will provide you with the strategies you need to personally handle the constant change we face in the modern workplace on an individual level. We’ll zero in on 5 change-focused mindsets you should adopt and some concrete strategies to put them into practice! You’ll finish this course with the tools you need to confidently become an agent of change.

In this course, you will:

  • Use situational awareness to better comprehend change as it happens.

  • Work through the 5 Stages of Change to navigate emotional responses to change.

  • Adopt ideation techniques to help generate innovative approaches to new situations.

  • Reframe your circumstances to confront change with a new perspective.

  • Discuss how to make decisions without knowing the full picture.

  • Identify the questions you need to answer in order to clearly communicate a change.

The modern workplace does not stay the same for very long - change agility is an essential skill in order to function successfully at work. Having the tools to prepare for and move through change (when it inevitably comes) will set you up to be more resilient and flexible when it really counts.

As someone who has dedicated my life to learning and education, I have seen my fair share of change - first as a high school teacher and now as the VP of Learning at Udemy. I have spent my career focused on helping others grow, something that is absolutely rooted in our openness and willingness to change. Now, it’s part of my job to prepare my colleagues for constant change so they can move through it successfully, and I hope to help you do the same in this course.

If you're ready to face change with a new mindset, let's get started!

CBPM Course 1: Creating Agile and Accountable Project Teams

Creating Agile and Accountable Project Teams

Created by Timm Esque - Helps high stakes teams do what they say they will do

"]

Students: 11607, Price: Free

Traditional project management techniques are no longer keeping up with the speed and sophistication needed to succeed in today's fast-paced world. Software development has been shifting to "Agile" project methods for about a decade now, but very few projects are purely about software. Commitment-Based Project Management (CBPM) is an Agile project management method that can be applied in any project environment.

CBPM evolved in the mid-1990's to help high tech teams that absolutely needed to meet aggressive deadlines. It has since been used with success on a very diverse range of projects. There are two key differences between CBPM and other project management approaches: 1) CBPM focuses on deliverables vs tasks at all levels of organization to ensure clear expectations and leave room for innovation, and 2) CBPM teaches a slight shift in the language used to plan and monitor projects to help teams operate from strong deliverable commitments to each other.

Team members like CBPM because it is participative and creates greater clarity and transparency about what is going on on projects. Teams that follow CBPM, have a greater sense of control and avoid painful "panic mode" down the stretch. Project Managers like CBPM because it facilitates more responsibility and accountability from all team members and because when used correctly, it prevents painful surprises and rework.

The instructor, Timm Esque, is an award winning author and consultant who along with others created this approach to projects and has been helping teams use it since 1996. Timm has been cited as an expert on performance under pressure in the Wall Street Journal. He has published over 50 articles and book chapters, 3 books, and has presented or consulted in over 15 different countries.

As Managing Partner of Ensemble Management Consulting, Timm is hoping to use these Udemy courses to get the word out about CBPM and create a broader community of CBPM practitioners.

This first course is an introduction suitable to anyone who has experience working on or leading projects at any level. It contains about 45 minutes of lectures. There are some reflection questions and a couple activities designed to give you a sense of how CBPM is different. The purpose of the first course is to provide an introduction to CBPM and help you decide if it would make sense to continue to Course 2. However, it will also point you to other CBPM resources, several of which are free online.

If you decide to continue to the second CBPM Course on Udemy, you will learn a new structure, language and techniques for running regular status review meetings. Those who implement these techniques should see very quickly how CBPM can add value to your current practices, and help any team be more productive and more predictable.

Those who learn to implement CBPM fully, can earn performance-based CBPM certifications, offered by Ensemble in partnership with the International Society of Performance Improvement.

Students: 5821, Price: Free

Take the Path to LEAN Business Analysis (as it relates to Information Technology)

In today’s world, you and your organization must be responsive, flexible, and make things happen quickly. You must do more with less – and faster. You no longer have business as usual, so why do business analysis as usual?

 

With the widespread adoption of Agile, software development has gone through some serious remodeling. Agile teams build robust products incrementally and iteratively, requiring fast feedback from the business community to define ongoing work.  As a result, the process of defining IT requirements is evolving rapidly. Backlogs replace requirements definition documents. User Stories, Epics and Features replace requirement statements. Scenarios and Examples replace test cases. The timing of business analysis activities is shifting like sand.

 

This course is a brief overview of how you can reduce waste in Business Analysis practices to optimally support the new lean and agile software development world. You will learn about topics such as:

·         The purpose of a product roadmap and a prioritized product backlog

·         The concept of a Minimum Viable Product (MVP)

·         Agile and Lean thinking applied to requirements discovery, analysis, and acceptance testing

·         Lean requirement constructs such as Features, User Stories, Epics, Scenarios, Examples, etc.

·         The importance of feedback from your customers to improve the product

Agile is an approach for a successful project delivery. I would like to emphasize the word, successful as mostly Agile focuses on achieving the expected goals and results.

Agile is based on DSDM framework, which stands for Dynamic System Development Method. DSDM was found in 1994 by a group of IT Practitioners, to improve the traditional approach.

DSDM is a method of incremental delivery of parts of the solution. It means, that in DSDM Project is divided on increments and so the solution is delivered partially, to deliver the expected level of quality.

Agile Prioritization or how to “Put First Things First”

Students: 337, Price: Free

Imagine if you could find tools that can help you boost focus and maximize the value for the effort, even when you have tons of things to do.

Well, sorting things out and prioritizing is a key skill for that.

Prioritization is about deciding what are the elements that put a task or an action before something else. However, it is not only that. This skill is about being able to see how value and its definition changes over time and quickly adapt to get out the most of the context.

In this course I will teach you some of the basics about agility and why prioritization is important for that.

You will build skills and meet tools that you will be able to use both in your career and in your personal life.

We will go in this journey towards exploring how to ask the right questions to define the attributes of what is really valuable, and then, use those attributes to sort things and execute them in order, with maximum focus.

This course will help you start or improve your skills in choosing the right actions, at the right time.

This course is free and I will do my best to keep it free and improving, so please, use feedback as a constructive way of getting more free stuff like this.
