Foster City, CA (PRWEB) March 4, 2010
cPrime Inc, announces a new online on-demand project management eLearning course for Agile & Scrum. Introduction to Scrum for Project Managers is an online project management training course designed to increase productivity while improving the predictability of software projects. The course is tailored for Project Managers, Program Managers, PMO Directors and staff who manage projects and processes.
Introduction to Scrum for Project Managers provides a unique combination of traditional class room teaching and online learning to give students a real-life training experience through pre-recorded and indexed instructional eLearning modules.
In addition to learning the Scrum Methodology, the course also provides 1 PDU of credit recognized by the Project Management Institute, (PMI®).
The desire for fewer failures and speedier success is driving the rapid adoption of the Scrum process framework. Scrum is designed to improve the responsiveness to customer needs by reducing waste and reducing time to market.
Interest in the Scrum process framework is exploding as companies discover that Scrum enables them to manage software projects with greater reliability and improve responsiveness to customers. This class introduces the skills that project managers and team leaders need to perform the basic steps of a Scrum process for software development.
IDC research indicates that 70+% of software development failures are due to poor gathering and management of requirements, while a 2008 study by QSMA Associates showed that projects organized for agile development deliver products 37% faster to market, with 16% greater productivity, than industry averages.
Course topics include instruction on the three Scrum roles, the three Scrum meetings and the three Scrum artifacts. Project managers and team leads learn the basic planning, tracking, and management skills. Product Managers learn how to develop and prioritize requirements and team members learn how to estimate and break down work.
Learning on-demand is the new convenient alternative to classroom learning. Classes can be taken globally as long as an internet connection is present. These courses adapt to the most demanding schedules and provide the skills required to make a Scrum project successful.
