Management of IT projects

Many organizations increasingly rely on agile approaches. In this format, we show the means by which agile implementation can be achieved effectively and efficiently. The implementation phase presented in the workshop follows the Design Thinking process as an example. Participants without prior knowledge of Design Thinking can also successfully attend the course.


  • Project vs. Product – what are we developing here?
  • Value delivery through strategic prioritization and incremental planning
