In this course, you'll learn about managing projects with Agile project scheduling activities like setting work-in-progress limits and implementing project buffers. This course also covers recommended project time management processes for monitoring and tracking progress at both the iteration and project levels. This course also introduces you to key risk management and product quality, testing and integration strategies you can use when managing Agile projects to help ensure that your project creates and maintains the intended value as it progresses. This course is one of a series in the Skillsoft learning path that covers the objectives for the PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP)® exam. PMI-ACP is a registered mark of the Project Management Institute, Inc.

This course was developed with experts in the subject matter provided by the International Institute for Analytics (
