August 20, 2019

Exeter WordPress meet-up

If you work on your own or in a small business making WordPress sites, you might think that agile project management isn’t relevant to you. Afterall, it’s designed for big teams who are maintaining complex software over a long time and have the budget for a dedicated project manager, isn’t it? Well, yes and no.

In this talk I’ll show you how the principles of agile are relevant to you, no matter the size and scale of what you do and whether you are in an official project management role or not. I’ll also show you how having a more agile way of working can help you deliver better websites, waste less time on redundant features and keep your clients even happier.

We’ll cover:
• What are projects and project management
• What is agile
• Why it’s helpful
• And how to apply it to your WordPress business
