In today's dynamic and unpredictable environment, managing complex projects requires a versatile approach that combines multiple project management frameworks and tools.

This course equips you with the skills and knowledge to navigate such complexity effectively. Whether developing intricate software, creating advanced technological equipment, or undertaking extraordinary engineering constructions, this course will provide you with the strategies and techniques to achieve project success. Based on recommendations from the Project Management Institute, the International Consortium for Agile (ICAgile), and, you will learn to integrate various methodologies to handle mixed-nature projects with both clear and evolving requirements.

This course covers:

· Project Characteristics and Environmental Complexity: Understanding project features and navigating the complexities of external environments using VUCA and BANI models.

· Project Management Methodologies: Applying principles from PMI's PMBOK Guide 7th edition, popular agile frameworks, and hybrid approaches.

· Stakeholder Engagement and Team Dynamics: Identifying and managing stakeholder expectations, fostering self-governance, and building high-performing teams.

· Project Boundaries and Life Cycle Management: Collecting requirements, defining project boundaries, and managing moving targets of completion.

· Project Execution: Planning, executing tasks successfully, measuring performance, and ensuring continuous improvement.

· Managing Uncertainty: Techniques for interacting with uncertainty, identifying opportunities and threats, and developing response measures

This course is about how to cope with complex projects – tasks to be solved by a certain date by a team of experts, with a limited budget and at a high level of uncertainty regarding the product and/or technologies to be used.

We deal with such projects when developing and implementing complex software products, creating new technology equipment, conducting marketing studies of new markets, or building extraordinary engineering constructions.

The course is based on recommendations provided by the Project Management Institute, the International Consortium for Agile (ICAgile) and

Projects can be of a mixed nature — some expected results are clear, and some are complicated and will be continuously revised during project implementation. Such a complex task cannot be resolved by utilizing only one approach.

Upon completing the course, participants will be able to:

Construct Optimal Project Life Cycles:

Navigate uncertainty and adapt project life cycles to dynamic conditions.

Integrate various project management frameworks for cohesive project execution.

Identify and Apply Appropriate Tools:

Assess factors influencing the selection of management tools and frameworks.

Effectively utilize project management techniques from PMI, ICAgile,, and hybrid approaches.

Engage Stakeholders and Foster Team Dynamics:

Analyze and manage stakeholder expectations and powers.

Promote self-governance and build high-performing project teams.

Manage Project Boundaries and Execution:

Define clear project boundaries and manage evolving project targets.

Plan, execute, measure, and continuously improve project tasks effectively.

Address Uncertainty Proactively:

Identify and respond to project uncertainties, opportunities, and threats.

After completing the course, a certificate
is issued on the Luxoft Training form
