Introduction to Business Excellence 

UpcomingCourses.pngLearn how to apply the Agile project management methodology to your projects with internationally recognised qualifications - Public and in-house courses available.


In the last ten years, Agile Project Management has been rapidly taken up across many industries as the preferred approach to managing initiatives. The AgilePM™ exam courses (Agile Foundation and Agile Practitioner) address the needs of those who want to be Agile.

Based on the proven fundamentals within DSDM Atern, the approach provides the ability to deliver Agile Projects in organisations requiring  visibility and discipline around the tasks associated with managing projects. At the same time, it allows the fast pace, flexibility and empowerment offered within the Agile environment.

AgilePM characters at a stand-up.jpgWhat is AgilePM?

In essence, it is an iterative process that focuses

  • on customer value
  • team interaction over tasks
  • adapting to current business reality rather than following a prescriptive plan.

Agile PM has been around for over 10 years. Initially it was mainly used by small software start-up companies, but now it is used by many large corporate enterprises. This is because it works - and it works for many types of projects, not just software projects.

Learn:

  • The benefits of an Agile approach
  • The typical life cycle of a project framed around the Agile method.
  • How to control an Agile project whilst maintaining the flexibility that should come with it.
  • The philosophy and principles of Agile Project Management
  • The use of stand-ups, timeboxes/sprints and retrospectives
  • How to Use MoSCoW prioritisation.
  • The art of estimating and planning.
  • Core benefits of Agile management.
  • About iterative and incremental development.
  • The recommended roles and responsibilities in an AP.

"Thanks for unlocking the mysteries of PRINCE2 for us. The combination of your relaxed, expert training style, the useful real-world examples and the excellent resources made me confident about both the exam and about taking PRINCE2 back to my real world. I’ll definitely be recommending Project Laneways."

Tracey, July 2015

"....I really think Prince2 is going to make a huge difference to the way we manage projects.

That aside, you personally were fantastic. The course delivery could easily have been intense, dull and boring (I have been to enough seminars/training courses to know that). But you made it relevant, interesting and engaging. A testament to your skills as a trainer."

Publications Coordinator, April 2012

"Just wanted to drop you an email to say thank you for the PRINCE2 course. I really enjoyed it and can attribute much of that to your experience and delivery style. I will definitely be recommending you to anyone who wants to train in the future."

Application Analyst, May 2012

"..... really appreciate what a great job you done facilitating the coarse especially as you could give so many real examples...I think that helps in learning the PRINCE2 methodology."

Project Coordinator, July 2012

I will definitely recommend PRINCE2 (and specifically Project Laneways) to my friends and colleagues; I thought it was a fantastic course."
