Course Description

Iterative development using the Unified Process provides many competitive benefits: major risks are resolved early in development; requirement changes and new stakeholder requests (inevitable in any project) are accommodated smoothly; skill and resource utilization is maximized; progress and quality are continuously assessed. To obtain these advantages, the Project Manager must overcome many challenges: projects are started with incomplete and changeable requirements, documentation and artifacts evolve throughout the lifecycle; finalized sign-off of one stage does not occur before the next stage begins.

This course presents proven techniques and concepts, balanced with real-world labs and exercises, for planning and managing an iterative project. Project Managers will learn the key skills required to successfully plan and manage iterative projects. Techniques discussed have been developed and successfully applied on actual software projects.

NOTE: If you are a Project Management Professional (PMP)® certified by the Project Management Institute (PMI), you can earn Professional Development Units (PDUs) by attending IconATG courses.
