As more and more people are adopting agile-based development methods, the single biggest thing TorranceLearning hears is, “I’ve got to get my team/clients/boss/SMEs on board with this, or it will fail miserably.” You do need to get your team, your clients (internal and external), your boss, and your SMEs on board with this—because if you do not, then yes, it is likely to fail miserably. Agile is more than a project management method. It is a culture.

In this session you will learn from agile project management developed specifically for instructional design and development projects. You will dive deep into case studies that show how agile changes an organization’s culture and how to bring that change about. You will learn how agile solves many of the sticking points with the old waterfall-based approaches to projects. You will explore the importance of communication, communication, getting results, and communication.
