In the complex and dynamic field of financial services, well-run IT projects are key to an organisation's success. Knowledge of best practices in project management brings vast benefits in quality, efficiency, cost and morale. Yet it is rare for a team to deliver consistently on time and according to requirements.
A generic course in project management may help with some of the basics, but research shows that there is deep value in learning about project management within the specific context of one's immediate industry. Thus, we at Celerated offer this three day Project Management Methodologies course aimed precisely at IT professionals working in financial services, focusing on ways in which the leading methodologies - PMBOK, Scrum and Kanban - can be applied successfully in a field which demands continuous value-add.
