Agile Project Management

🎓 Virtual Classroom | 📍 On-site | 🏢 In-company

In the two day Agile Fundamentals course, participants will get acquainted with the principles and the essential best practices from Lean New Product Development and Agile Software Development.

This course should be considered “agnostic” Lean and Agile, but draws on the principles and practices from Lean New Product Development, Scrum and Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe®). These theoretical frameworks are enriched with the more than 40 years of combined experience of the two Threon trainers.

The participant can choose to follow this course on-site (Brussels) or fully virtual.

Update COVID-19 measurements:

⚠ On-site trainings will be held in Brussels, respecting the COVID-19 safety procedures. Due to the uncertainty of COVID-19 regulation, taken by the Belgium Government, it might occur that on-site training dates will be forced to change to virtual sessions. If that change occurs, we will inform the participant 30 days prior to the first date of the training session.
