Certified Project Manager (Waterfall&Agile)

The training covers the integration of the two well-known project management concepts, sequentially and agile. The concept of sequential project management will be elaborated in the first part of the course, which is accepted and easily adapted to the processes communicating between organizational units in the company. In addition, the course will deal with the agile concept of project management where students will be introduced to the terminology and techniques used in this concept. The integration of these concepts will be addressed through the introduction of new, flexible team management, documentation and other aspects relevant to project management. The main purpose of the training is to provide a better understanding of both concepts of project management, better application in practice and a higher level of management depending on the type of project. The training is planned to be implemented in two levels. The first level will cover sequential and agile project management, presented in a theoretical way and basic application. The second level of training will cover project management techniques related to the selection of team members, advanced project management, and the introduction of new effective control points useful to the project manager and adequate tools. The training, in addition to the theoretical part, contains practical exercises that will be discussed and evaluated in groups.

The training will be delivered by people with rich experience as project managers with international certifications. Participants in this training will have the opportunity to work in groups where they will share their experiences, demonstrating personal skill and creativity in choosing appropriate solutions to different practice situations. Upon completion of each level, testing will be conducted in the form of practical project management related to the topics covered at the appropriate course level.
