Agile Capstone (Online)
Before enrolling in this program, you should complete all other programs in the Master's Certificate in Project Management – Agile.
Agile Capstone (Online) will empower you to apply the skills and techniques learned through previous programs in the Agile track of the Master’s Certificate in Project Management. Through engaging simulations, you’ll play the role of Scrum Master, Product Owner, executive stakeholder, and customer while practicing Agile team rituals including sprint and release planning, retrospectives, and user story prioritization.
These simulations will also expose you to technical spikes, impediment resolution, forecasting, integrating with non-Agile teams, and linking multiple concurrent Agile teams on a single product release. You will also be involved in a troubled project recovery simulation and learn to use Agile project management software to help provide many of the decision-making artifacts that are commonly used in large-scale Agile projects.
