Foundational Lean & Agile Project Management Certificate

The Foundational Lean & Agile Project Management Certificate provides an introduction to Lean and Agile project management. Delegates can expect to learn the full scope of what it means to adopt and implement Lean and Agile strategies and techniques. Instead of simply learning definitions and applications, delegates will also understand why Lean and Agile are important and effective strategies in today’s volatile, uncertain, changing, and ambiguous (VUCA) marketplace.

You must complete three courses to be eligible for the Foundational Lean & Agile Project Management Certificate

Step One - You must take the following courses:

Fundamentals of Lean & Agile
Iterative Delivery with Scrum & Kanban

  • 25 - 27 August 2020 Dubai


Fundamentals of Lean & Agile

Fundamentals of Lean & Agile provides a foundational exploration of what it means to be Lean and Agile. In this course, attendees not only learn the value and basics of Lean and Agile execution – they also learn many of the necessary “other” elements of any successful Lean and Agile environment. Curriculum includes overviews on Lean and Agile philosophy, myths and how they work together, overviews on both iterative and continuous delivery methods, overviews on Scrum and Kanban and overviews on how Lean and Agile work is generated, valued, sized and represented; all of which contribute to a clear understanding of the Lean and Agile universe in preparation for more advanced concepts and techniques.

Iterative Delivery with Scrum & Kanban

Iterative Delivery with Scrum & Kanban is an activity-driven course for teams, and leaders of teams, that demonstrates how to perform iterative delivery of work using Scrum and Kanban. Iterative delivery is one of two principal methods of delivering work in a Lean and Agile manner and blends well with project-based work efforts. The course provides specific learning and application-based experience through Scrum and Kanban in order to complete deliverables during the class. The course assumes that participants already know the foundational elements of Lean and Agile.

Continuous Improvement with Lean & Kanban

Continuous Improvement with Lean & Kanban is an activity-driven, “nuts-and-bolts” course for teams and leaders of teams demonstrating how to perform continuous improvement of your work using Lean and Kanban. It provides specific learning and applicationbased experience wielding Lean and Kanban to complete deliverables during the class. Continuous improvement is one of two principle methods of delivering work in a Lean and Agile manner and blends well with continuous-flow work efforts. The course assumes foundational elements of Lean and Agile are known.

Facilitation Techniques for Business Analysis

  • 11 - 12 October 2020 Dubai


Those practicing business analysis spend a significant amount of time facilitating sessions to gather requirements and other information, yet many facilitators lack formal training on how to effectively do so.

A successful facilitation session results in requirements and information that can be analysed and worked with once the session is complete. Facilitation Techniques for Business Analysis focuses on teaching the facilitation skills necessary to elicit and analyse requirements on a project.

In this highly interactive course, delegates will learn how to effectively help stakeholders define their needs and form these into quantifiable requirements through facilitation. As a facilitator, this involves learning how to prepare for and conduct both face-to-face and remote group sessions, being exposed not only to several facilitation techniques, but also effective facilitation practices and how to manage conflict in a session. Most importantly, it provides the opportunity to practice these skills in a safe environment with a trained facilitator who will guide participants through various activities.

Attendees will leave the class with the confidence to prepare for a session, including creating a facilitation plan, motivating a group’s participation, building consensus, managing conflict, maintaining session focus and evaluating results for lessons learned.

Step Two: Complete at least one of the following courses:

Eliciting & Managing Requirements

  • 13 - 15 October 2020 Dubai


Eliciting & Managing Requirements is designed for individuals responsible for doing just that - eliciting requirements from users and stakeholders and managing those requirements throughout solution development.

The course looks at the processes around solution scope validation, collaborative elicitation, modelling the solution, documenting effective requirements, solution validation, requirements change management and how to plan the work necessary to successfully drive the whole process.

After the scope of a solution to a business problem has been proposed and accepted, the work (typically project-based) of designing and developing that solution must commence. This course explores how the discipline of business analysis contributes to the work of a project, ensuring that the requirements of the solution being developed are fully elicited from, communicated to, and understood by all stakeholders involved. Additionally, the course discusses how business analysis in the context of a project ensures that the solution developed fulfills the intended scope as well as covers considerations for managing requirements (and changes to those requirements) throughout their effective lifecycle.

Managing Projects
