Agile project management
You are asked to deliver/work towards completion of a mini project for your portfolio of projects (as set out in Week 6/7 )
You are put in to 2-3 separate ‘Scrum’ teams and assigned specific roles and will gain experience / practice using the Scrum Agile PM Framework on a real live mini project.
NB: Client needs or objectives and their ability to provide assets may change. These are the realities of ‘real life projects’. If these issues arise in this task, Scrum teams will need to be ready to respond to change and be able to reflect on such change. Such change may mean Scrum teams will need to alter the ‘scope’ of the mini-project. Teams MUST work with the course facilitator to ensure such adjustments are within the boundaries and limits of both the set exercise (<link is hidden> the mini-project) and its timeframe.
