    Agile Product and Project Management for Information Products and Services
    Training Series The past decade has seen a transformation in the way that information products and services are built with the shift to agile development methodologies. Agile approaches advocate incremental development driven by cross-functional, self-directed teams. Unlike more traditional waterfall methodologies, Agile allows teams to learn and adapt their approach along the way, validating that what they are building actually meets user needs.

    Hi everyone
    Just a quick note to let you know that this course has been postponed for a few weeks, and will now start on May 14 and run weekly through July 2. The timing has also changed slightly - sessions will be from 11.00am - 12.30pm, which we hope will make it a bit easier for people in Europe to attend, as well as those in the Americas. All sessions are also recorded if you want to participate by are unable to attend in real time. Updated information is available here: https://www.niso.org/events/2020/05/agile-product-and-project-management-information-products-and-services
    Apologies for any inconvenience and thanks for your understanding, Alice
