Managing risk in agile projects – new workshop for digital project managers

Sydney: 5 November 2015. Back by popular demand, Digital Nation’s one-day course on the Agile Digital Project Manager will be held on November 24 in Sydney.

Particularly with agile where cost overruns and timetable slippage due to constant change are a real risk, it’s critical to have proper processes in place. Most agencies and clients new to agile haven’t yet developed the cost controls and workflows required.

 

This one-day intensive covers how to make agency processes more efficient, what tools are needed to deliver profitable projects, and how to make the agile relationship work well between client and agency.

 

Commenting on the launch, Digital Nation’s Director, Claudia Sagripanti says, “The project manager has a key role in managing expectations between agency and client on agile projects. They need to ensure that there’s no ambiguity on project requirements. The project manager is the key to ensuring that the team is working as agreed.

 

The course rates highly, with feedback confirming that the training is vital to help the project manager spot and manage problems, and communicate effectively with internal and external stakeholders.”

Key topics covered:

  1. How to match expectations and systems between agency and client on agile projects
  2. Ways to minimise risk
  3. Identify red flags, deliver bad news and recover from problems
  4. Implement essential tools, templates and documentation for project control
  5. Stakeholder management techniques

Since launching the first digital project management series in 2008, Digital Nation has trained over 1000 companies to deliver profitable quality projects.
