On time. In budget. What they need (even if that changes!). These are moving targets and yet, you’re expected to deliver all three.
Agile methods dominate the software development space, in large part because:
- Agile methods improve the ability to meet schedule deadlines
- Agile quality is better than traditional norms
- Agile methods continue to provide users with a competitive advantage
It’s no wonder that other organizational functions are beginning to eye Agile methods as an attractive option for project management, decision making, and prioritization. Agile provides a framework for adapting to change as it happens and working with the project sponsor to deliver the content most needed by learners.
While elearning teams can benefit greatly from adopting Agile, this workshop addresses specific adaptations to Agile methods proven to be effective for instructional designers and developers.
