In this course you'll learn about effective Agile project scheduling activities like setting work in progress limits and implementing project buffers. This course also covers recommended processes for monitoring and tracking progress at both the iteration and project level. This course also introduces you to key risk management and product quality, testing, and integration strategies to help ensure your project creates and maintains the intended value as it progresses. This course is one of a series in the Skillsoft learning path that covers the objectives for the PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP)® exam.
