Tampa, Fla. (April 29, 2014) – Demand for Agile training has been the buzz for the last several years in IT and business organizations. The University of South Florida’s two-day workshop, “Agile Project Management: Navigating the Agile Environment,” will help introduce technology professionals, project managers and others to the Agile development environment.
This program will help participants understand the paradigm shift needed to introduce a business to Agile methodologies. Participants will learn how to drive a project by value instead of a plan, how to involve stakeholders, and ways to enhance team performance through a continuous improvement process. Through an interactive, hands-on approach, participants will walk away with experience utilizing agile techniques that they can use immediately.
The workshop is taught by Mark Gibson, PMP®, PgMP®, a career project and program manager with over 20 years’ experience in both commercial software implementations and custom software development projects. As a PMI-certified PgMP and PMP, he has managed dozens of projects in industries ranging from telecom, retail, transportation, financial services, and manufacturing. He has first-hand experience with numerous Agile implementations. “Agile can be used across multiple industries, and not just IT, as it provides a collaborative approach to bringing business leaders and developers together in product development,” notes Gibson.
The workshop will be offered on Friday and Saturday, May 9-10, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the USF Tampa campus. The program fee is $925.
