Agile is rapidly becoming the default approach for software delivery. Based on small, cross-functional teams, agile provides a transparent and powerful way of delivering technical products and services, and increasingly many non-technical products. Even so, the ability to govern the work of agile teams remains challenging. Applying traditional project management approaches based on tracking a sequence of related activities or tasks against a master project plan, conflicts with the core premise that agile teams are cross-functional and self-organizing.

In this course we look at how to track the progress and performance of agile teams – how to plan long-term, and track progress towards the end goal. We look at how agile teams address risk, whether technical risk or other forms of project risk. We consider how agile projects can be governed successfully and safely in different contexts, such as highly-regulated environments or working with complex products or legacy systems. Finally, we discuss governance structures, traditionally owned by a project or program management office (the PMO), that work in an agile environment without slowing down or compromising the benefits of agile delivery.

My experience at Sauder was overall very positive, I graduated in 2019.

There was a balance between advanced business theories and classes, and technical skills such as analytics and programming. The latter of which I personally found to be
quite difficult, but rewarding if you put the time in to learn.

By far, the best part of the program was the people. Everyone accepted was professional, nice, and smart. These are people who want you to succeed just as much as they want to succeed themselves.

The school's career centre was an invaluable resource to help with applications and conducting mock interviews so we knew what to expect when entering the job market.

Be prepared for an (at times) overwhelming workload though. Your social life will take a significant hit when class starts.

Sauder gets 5-stars from me. Great international faculty and a strong community of business professionals. My firm covered the costs of the change management program but I would have happily paid for it myself.
