Overview

Not everyone in software development companies needs to develop software. Helping others do that is an important duty, and it usually goes to the Project Manager. 

These days, software development is broken down into five phases. These are initiation, requirement gathering, planning, implementation, and maintenance. Although the project manager primarily interacts with developers, they are also responsible for defining the scope of the project with the client and conveying the developer's successes and hurdles. This is a very rewarding job that happens to require the least hard technical skills.

Our course covers the Waterfall and Agile software development philosophy with, just like the industry, heavier emphasis on Agile. We then move on to Scrum, a key methodology of applying the Agile philosophy to real-life projects. Roughly 1/3 of the course is allocated to soft skills so that you are comfortable working with your team and external stakeholders. Last but not least, we teach you the industry-standard project management tools, such as JIRA and Trello.
