Upcoming Training

  • Collaborating & Communicating Agile Requirements
    12/14/2016 - 12/16/2016

    Project failures are often due to poor requirements gathering, analysis, and planning. Traditional requirements documents may not contain complete and accurate requirements due to rapidly changing business environments. Agile requirements gathering, by moving detailed requirements closer to implementation, allows for rapid response to change. In this course, you will learn how to gather and manage these requirements.

    Traditional requirements are documented in a requirements specification. Changes to the requirements are managed through a change process. This course will demonstrate alternative ways of documenting requirements and managing changes, allowing for a less "heavy" process in projects that can benefit from quick changes in direction. You will gain hands-on experience with techniques for gathering agile requirements. Through explanatory lectures with demonstrations combined with practice exercises, you will gain the experience needed to create requirements that meet business needs.

  • Certified ScrumMaster Workshop
    12/14/2016 - 12/15/2016
    Facilities of Dynamic WorldWide Training - Tempe ,AZ

    Even projects that have solid, well-defined project plans encounter some degree of change and waste. Shifting market conditions, budget cuts, staff restructuring, or any number of influences will disrupt the best plan while contributing to customer dissatisfaction and staff discouragement. Moreover, projects that begin with changing or unclear requirements make it difficult to even establish project expectations.

    Scrum is the agile development process that allows teams to deliver usable software periodically throughout the life of the project, absorbing change and new requirements as the project proceeds.

    Beginning with the history of agile development and moving through the disciplines promoted by Scrum, you will gain a comprehensive understanding of the Scrum methodology while specifically reviewing the behaviors expected of a ScrumMaster.

    Certification:

    Upon completion of the class, your information will be submitted to the Scrum Alliance and you will become eligible to take the Certified Scrum Master (CSM) online exam. To be eligible for the exam, you must be present for the full duration of the two days of training and participate during the training session. Passing this exam will earn you the Certified Scrum Master designation.

    Whether you're allocating resources for a project, funding a new initiative or establishing a supply chain for a new product or service, negotiation is inevitably at the heart of the process. But few people understand the structure, techniques, and approaches available to them as they seek to positively influence an outcome.

    This hands-on seminar gives you a step-by-step guide to effective negotiation. You must identify the problem, understand it from the other's perspective, generate alternative solutions, and select a solution that benefits both sides. All parties need each other to achieve their goals. Negotiation focuses on solving the problem and closing the gap between what both parties want.

    You'll leave the course with AMA's Negotiation Planner to help you prepare your negotiations every step of the way and effectively apply your newly learned know-how.
