Advanced Business B - BUSS4902

Year - 2020

Projects are a common way to coordinate activities in organisations. While traditional methods follow a planning logic and work well under stable conditions when intended outcomes are well understood, innovation and entrepreneurial activity requires a different logic. Agile project methods offer an alternative that values continuous change, flexibility, time-to-market, interactive learning and self-organisation over rigorous planning and control. In this unit students learn the ethos, principles, and methods of agile project management. Students experience hands-on a range of agile and team work techniques as applied in practice. Learning revolves around practical class room activities and be applied in project.
