This workshop enables participants to learn and practice Agile project management methods and to adapt them to individual business environments. The Agile practices of Scrum, Extreme Programming and Kanban are explained and practiced, and the skills needed to build and foster collaboration and accountability within cross-functional teams are emphasized.
