Hannah Grimes Center
Today’s rapidly changing business environment demands an adaptable approach to project management. In response, the Hannah Grimes Center for Entrepreneurship announces its innovative workshop in Agile project management.
Agile is a proven method that is designed for high-uncertainty projects. For example, Agile is appropriate for projects where the customer needs are being discovered, the requirements may be changing, or the technology is new.
Agile was initially designed for software development but today these techniques are applied to a wide range of projects, from information technology to non-profit strategy development and from manufacturing to education. The focus is on empowering teams to collaborate and make decisions quickly and effectively.
This one-day workshop provides an overview of Agile, using the methodology known as Scrum. Participants will receive a certificate at the completion of the workshop.
The workshop will held on Thursday, November 2nd, from 9 AM – 5 PM. While lunch is not provided, there is a lunch break and participants are encouraged to visit downtown Keene’s many restaurants. The cost is $325 per person, call for information about group rates.
