IT Masters Agile Project Management


This course will cover the initial topics of the Agile Project Management subject run by Charles Sturt University (Australia) which is part of their Masters program, delivered by IT Masters. It is a small section (about one third) of a Masters-level subject. This means that you will gain exposure to some of the more complex background ideas, and not just the simple ‘how-to’ content that is usually found within corporate training programs.

A Business Analyst with more than 10 years working on a range of web based desktop development projects, Kelsey will share her experiences from Agile projects. In her “spare” time from her demanding career and raising a family, Kelsey is studying for her Doctorate where she is researching “What distinguishes an Agile project from other projects in terms of how requirements are discovered, delivered and recorded?”.

During 2000 – 2007, Brenton employed and trained a team of project managers for an IT company in Sydney implementing national VPN solutions. He also oversaw the replacement of the business workflow, provisioning and project management software whilst re-engineering all the project-related processes and replacing all policy procedures relating to this.
