P08 Agile Project Management for eLearning
8:30 AM - 4:30 PM Tuesday, March 15
On time. In budget. What they need (even if that changes!). That’s what you can expect as you implement LLAMA or any of the agile project management approaches. The software development industry is embracing agile to address these issues and there is much that the eLearning development world can learn from them. Agile provides a framework for adapting to change as it happens, and working with the client to deliver the content most needed by learners.
In this session, you will learn about the agile project management methods we’ve adapted—Lot Like Agile Methods Approach (LLAMA)—and how our project teams use them on the job. You’ll learn about the tools and supplies you need and how to choose a project to pilot. This session will focus on the actual how-to and get answers to your questions. You’ll also use agile tools and techniques for estimating, planning, and managing a design and development project.
In this session, you will learn:
- How to build the business case for agile, LLAMA specifically, and iterative development with SMEs, project sponsors and your own team
- How to kick off projects, create a shared definition of scope and action-focused eLearning people actually want to take
- How to estimate and plan the project so you arrive on time, in budget
- How to build the environment to support an agile project team
Intermediate and advanced designers, developers, project managers, and managers.
