Join Bonnie Biafore for an in-depth discussion in this video What you need to know, part of Agile Project Management with Microsoft Project.
- Before we get started, there are a couple of things you need to know about this course. First, it focuses on managing Agile Projects using Microsoft Project. You should already be familiar with Microsoft Project basics, like the ribbon, using Views, creating tasks, and assigning resources. Next, because there are quite a few Agile methodologies, this course uses Scrum as an example. I don't go into an in depth explanation of Scrum here.
This course covers how to use Microsoft Project to manage your project that follows the Scrum approach. If you're interested in learning more about Agile Project Management, you can find courses on that subject in the lynda.com online training library. The last thing about this course is it doesn't cover tracking backlog features from their initial suggestion through developing feature cards and estimating feature points. Instead, it picks up when features are ready to be assigned to sprints.
