Lean-Agile Project Management Certification by Net Objectives prepares a person to play the role of the Lean-Agile Project Manager. In today’s world it is critical that one know why Agile works, not just be given a set of practices to coach the team in performing. While Scrum is a popular Agile method today, it is not always the best Agile method to use. This course introduces the participants to popular Agile methods: Scrum and Kanban.

It is a key component in Net Objectives' Approach to Extending Scrum to Create an Agile Enterprise.

This three-day certification course teaches project managers how to use Lean principles and Agile practices to deliver profitable projects within the enterprise. Using new ways to think about the enterprise, the course establishes a model of the lean enterprise organization, and teaches project managers how to manage the alignment between business and technology teams so that a stream of highly profitable solutions and applications flow from the development organization.

To win in today’s competitive market requires giving your business the ability to deliver highly profitable products faster than the competition. The goal of Lean-Agile software development is the ability to add value quickly to your customers now while retaining the ability to add value quickly in the future.

Most development organizations aren’t structured to do this because they work on large projects that require long delivery cycles. In this course we teach how to drive from business and customer value to select what you work on and teach the teams how to deliver it incrementally.

This course breaks down and analyzes 3 key areas of the Lean Enterprise:

  • Business
    • Prioritize features by highest business/end user value
    • ‘Drive’ the development efforts to incrementally deliver
    • Portfolio Management
  • Development Teams
    • Focus on speed in delivering software functionality
    • Must include functionality, maintainability, and extensibility
    • Requires excellent engineering practices
  • Management
    • Focus on the value stream (cycle time—idea to implementation)
    • ‘Drive’ Continuous Standards Improvement
    • Organizational guiding principles, impediment removal

This course is a leadership focused offering that teaches the management skills required to implement Lean-Agile. It is a combination of interactive lecture with a significant amount of time spent on hands-on exercises.

This course is an alternative to standard ScrumMaster training. More and more companies are finding initial success with Scrum only to find they cannot extend it beyond a few teams. We believe the reason for this is no failing of the people attempting to use Scrum, nor even Scrum itself. Rather, the challenges that must be dealt with go beyond the capabilities of the Scrum framework to provide sufficient solutions. In other words, Scrum is not always the right process for an organization, but if that is all someone has learned no other alternatives present themselves. This course better prepares organizations for Agile development by providing a solid understanding of the principles behind Agile methods which allows you to decide which is the best team process for you - in your
circumstances. This greater foundation also allows for better tailoring of whichever Agile method you chose, even Scrum
