Agile Project Management In Action: The Challenge of Egypt


This is not a course; rather it is a business simulation – a highly interactive training workshop. It is presented onsite only to a group of selected team members from an organization.

How does your team cope with constantly changing business demands when saying no is not an option?

Step back 4,000 years to ancient Egypt in this one-day highly interactive and educational simulated environment where participants hone their Agile project management skills as they work their way through a Pharaoh’s list of demands for building a pyramid. Participants will learn about the strengths and weaknesses related to various project management approaches used, as well as how the effective application of Agile methodologies can help cope with fast-changing business demands and requirements.

The roles of traditional project management are changing. This business simulation focuses on implementing Agile principles such as cross-functional teamwork and communications, as well as practices such as scrum, sprints, product backlog, sprint review, and deployment. The goal of the workshop is to provide a safe environment for teams to experiment and learn new ways of working together. The end goal is to help your organization remain flexible, reduce costs, and shorten delivery cycle times while meeting the hectic demands of the business.

Your team’s challenge: The Pharaoh has called for a meeting with the High Priest, who has put together a team – architects, risk experts, quarry experts, a Nile expert, and construction workers. The team will decide what products they can develop in the first sprint and, step-by-step, the team will develop all the products. Even as the requirements of the Pharaoh change, the team will handle the situation by using established Agile principles.


Participants will learn to:

  • Get more out of their project management training and translate theory into practice
  • Harness Agile and scrum concepts including the ‘Agile way of thinking’
  • Create customer value in a dynamic environment
  • Work together in a team that is focused on executing an Agile project
  • Understand project roles and dependencies in an Agile setting
  • Apply Agile principles and processes
  • Explore Agile best practices and how to effectively use them in a project environment
  • Increase project performance and customer value

This course is applicable to anyone working in the fields of IT service management, IT operations, DevOps, software development, and project management.
