Agile UML Project Management Training Course - 2 Days

This UML training course is aimed at project managers who wish to update their project management skills to take account of the latest advances in software development techniques. It teaches how to manage a highly iterative and agile model-driven software development process that employs UML modelling techniques for the development of complex object oriented or structured, multi-tier component or web-based information systems.

With the advent of new technologies and architectures and increasing levels of complexity and timescale pressure, project management techniques have had to adapt and become more flexible. Agile development enables a continuous process of specification, estimation, scheduling and assessment to take place in a constantly moving business environment while providing relevant functionality to end users.

Delegates will learn:
  • The impact of agile iterative incrementation on many aspects of software development.
  • How UML modelling affects the management of a project.
  • How to specify an appropriate set of deliverables and working documents for agile development.
  • How to assess risk and schedule a project based on risk mitigation.
  • How to prioritise requirements based on multiple criteria.
  • How to develop and maintain accurate cost and time estimates.
  • How to develop, implement and maintain a suitable agile process.
  • How to build a suitable agile project team based on roles and responsibilities.
Suitable for:
Suitable for

Software Development Managers, Project Managers, System Analysts, Architects, Developers and Requirements Specifiers with at least 2 years experience.
