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.
Who should attend?
Web managers or marketers who want to discover how project management tools and techniques can deliver projects on-brief, on-time and on-budget. It would also benefit project managers looking for ways to achieve greater business benefit and flexibility, without relinquishing control, and anyone with an expanding web portfolio looking to manage resources more effectively.
How will I benefit?
You will discover what makes web projects succeed or fail and examine the different methods of managing projects including when each is appropriate. A big plus will be ensuring that your projects deliver tangible benefits over shorter timescales. You will also acquire the knowledge to define the objectives of your web project to gain the right level of buy-in and support from the rest of your organisation.
What will I learn?
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.
Key learning outcomes
• Quickly and effectively capture requirements and deliver on-time and to budget, even in a rapidly changing environment
• Deliver early return-on-investment using agile incremental delivery methods
• Meet all stakeholder requirements by introducing shared goals
