Adapt to the changed requirements and expectations with agile product development

Agile product development and agile project management have become increasingly popular over the last couple of decades, and for good reason. Organizations face constant changes to their products and services resulting in needs to adapt to new customer demands and regulatory requirements. Agile product development in projects is a good way to adapt to these rapidly changing requirements and expectations. This to ensure that you are delivering the right product to your customers (both internal and external) and that you are delivering it the right way (at the right quality).

Participant profile

This course is designed for those who are interested in getting access to agile tools, knowledge about agile concepts, agile frameworks and agile techniques – and who would like to be able to use all this in a practical project context immediately after the course.

Please note that you can apply for funding through the Finance Competence Fund (Finanskompetencepuljen) for this course if you are employed in a company covered by the agreement between FA and Finansforbundet.

You do not need any special prerequisites to participate in the course, but it will be an advantage if you have a basic understanding of projects as a working method.
