Managing web projects is difficult: mixed teams, experts in different areas and stakeholders frequently pull you in different directions and tight deadlines add additional pressures. Throw in changing requirements, high expectations, tight budgets and time restrictions and what is needed is a workable project management technique to provide structure and control that’s flexible enough to handle evolving requirements. This course adopts an agile approach that combines the right level of control with flexibility.
The fundamentals of project management: what it is, why projects go wrong, and what’s different about web projects. You will be given an overview of different project management methods (traditional/waterfall, agile and incremental delivery) and be shown how to manage each. The course covers the full project management lifecycle from the basics of getting started (defining the project and scope, prioritising and estimating features) to delivering in increment and deployment. We’ll look at the tools for managing and communicating progress, quality (test-first approach) and how to assess and manage risk to avoid common pitfalls.
