057072 - AGILE PROJECT MANAGEMENT
The course aims at developing the competences necessary to apply the basic Project Management techniques and tools to a complex project. In increasingly volatile markets, project management needs special attention including change-enabling methodologies into traditional processes. Consequently, the course deals with the traditional (or plan driven) processes of project planning and control (scope, time, resource, cost, quality, risk, cash flow, stakeholder, communication...)and with Agile (or change-driven) project management processes that facilitate the management of project scope changes. The waterfall and agile tools and techniques seen in class will be practiced with two approach:
- the analysis of case studies of projects carried out in traditional sectors (Oil & Gas, plant engineering, nuclear, energy).
- the participation to an hackathon where each groups’ project work will be presented to an external commission
The course fits into the overall program curriculum pursuing some of the defined general goals. In particular, the course contributes to the development of the following capabilities:
Understand context, functions, processes in a business and industrial environment and the impact of those factors on business performance
Design solutions applying a scientific and engineering approach (Analysis, Learning, Reasoning, and Modeling capability deriving from a solid and rigorous multidisciplinary background) to face problems and opportunities in a business and industrial environment
Interact in a professional, responsible, effective and constructive way in a working environment, also motivating group members
The course is organized developing both the traditional PM approach (Monday lessons) and the Agile one (Friday lessons). In particolar the agile approach is a stand alone course named Agile Project Management (5 CFU).
Risultati di apprendimento attesi
By the end of the course, students will learn contents and practices according to what defined in the learning objectives.
Use properly Plan Driven & Change Driven Project Management language, understanding management processes involved in a project, understanding interdependencies between operational and managerial processes, capability to correctly apply techniques and tools available in project management.
In terms of acquired knowledge and understanding, students will be able to develope with both traditional and agile methodologies plan for managing different types of complex project involving the main knowledge areas of project management (scope of work, time, progress, cost, resources, cash flow, risk, etc.) and to estimate project performance and evaluate recovery plan during project execution.
Concerning the ability to apply the acquired knowledge and understanding, students will be able to select the methodology (plan driven or agile) that best suit different types of projects.
Through the project work developement students will also acquire the skills to formulate a judgment, on implementing an effective two-way communication: with colleagues for the development of the project work, with the managers of the companies involved in the competition for the participation to the hackathon.
Finally, students will improve their communication skills, being able to communicate both with other students during the project work development and with professionals during the final hackathon.

Earned Value Management: integrated control of project time and cost. Project performance indicators. Earned Value. Estimate to complete. Control process. Final performance of the project.
Risk management: Risk definition and classification. Risk management processes: identification of threats and opportunities, risk assessment and identification of response actions. Quantitative analysis of project residual risk. Simulation. Size of the contingency reserve. Project robustness and flexibility.
Agile Project Management (5 CFU course):
Managing projects with Agile methods: Project anticipation and adaptability to change; traditional, iterative, incremental and agile project’s lifecycles. Differences between agile and waterfall methods, need to develop new process to cope with change and instability, the context of application of Agile tools & Techniques.
The Agile Manifesto: History, origins and field of application.
Individuals and interactions over processes and tools: principles of effective communication and iteration.
Working software over comprehensive documentation: the key roles of iteration and prototyping activities.
Customer collaboration over contract negotiation: structuring an effective collaboration with client.
Responding to change over following a plan: Including change in the project planning phase.

Reviewing the main Agile Frameworks: Lean software development: The seven principles of software development
Extreme Programming: Values, principles and practices
Working in Scrum: Vision; Product Roadmap; Release planning; Sprint Planning; Daily Scrum; Sprint Review; Sprint Retrospective.
Agile Earned Value: measuring project progress in an agile context
Tool & techniques of Agile Project Management : communication area, Planning monitoring and control area, agile estimation, interpersonal skills, risk management, value based prioritization.
The role of the scrum master: principle of servant leadership in action.
Modalità di valutazione
Besides lectures and practical exercises, the course is based on the development by student teams of a plan of a simple project (including scope, time, resource, progress, and cost management). The completion of the team assignment is a prerequisite (just for 10 etc participans, for all the others is volunteer) for accessing the final test and will it be presented in a final Hackathon where companies’ managers are involved. Participation in class is strongly recommended and positively evaluated.
The final test includes both a written and an oral part, having the same weight for the final mark. The written test concerns the solution of some quantitative exercises seen during exercise sessions. Oral exam is about the subjects introduced during the lectures.
