MindEdge Offers Integrating Agile and Waterfall Practices Course

September 24, 2012

MindEdge's new Integrating Agile and Waterfall Practices course helps Agile project management practitioners recognize and resolve many of the common integration issues that emerge when these two methodologies are combined.

This self-paced online course is offered on MindEdge Online and through selected training partners.

The Integrating Agile and Waterfall Practices course consists of 20 short case studies that simulate the communication and interchanges that can occur as Agile and Waterfall practitioners work to resolve differences in the ways that they see and execute tasks. As students evaluate these case studies, they'll learn to deconstruct and diagnose any underlying problems that need to be resolved, just as they would in everyday practice. While they work to decode and correct these issues, they'll begin to recognize the common pitfalls that can happen as project teams collaborate and interact, which will allow them to step in to solve potential problems before work is affected.

After completing this course, learners should be able to:

  • Recognize the problems that Agile and Waterfall collaborators contend with on a regular basis
  • Apply practical tips from experienced practitioners to correct these problems
  • Polish and perfect skills as they create an environment that enhances the alliance with their partners and collaborators

This course is recommended for anyone managing projects who wants a better understanding of the issues involved in integrating Agile and Waterfall practices. There are no textbooks or prerequisites.

Learners who successfully complete the course can earn 3 PDUs/contact hours recognized by the Project Management Institute. MindEdge is an authorized PMI Global Registered Education Provider.
