HOW TO MAKE A TRADITIONAL PROJECT MANAGEMENT MORE AGILE – AN EDUCATIONAL NEED

The content of the paper fits in with the transition from unidisciplinary approaches towards multidisciplinary and transdisciplinary approaches in the research.
For several years IT projects are now mostly managed using agile methodologies. An agile approach is significantly more efficient than the traditional one, the “water fall” model. This is due to a specific nature of IT projects, different from other projects.
Recently, we have been observing early ideas and attempts to apply this new approach – at least partially – in management of projects other than IT, and in management of phenomena such as risk or crisis.
The main goal of the paper is to show to project managers using the “water fall” approach, the possibility and the importance of continuing education in one of the best known agile methodology – Scrum. This goal is achieved via the proposed education model. This model enables users - project managers - the following actions: quick overview of Scrum elements such as roles, artefacts, events and good practices; quick consultation on the appropriate ones from the above to be used in the given case; selection of optimal educational path (training, workshop, case study, e-learning, mixed, and so on) and, finally, a modification of a “water fall” approach supervised by education center specialists using selected Scrum elements. The model proposed could be used both before the start and during the realisation of the project.
The main elements of Scrum methodology are presented. A short comparative analysis of Scrum with the coconstruction project management method and with risk and crisis management known methods is made. A proposal of education model of transferring Scrum roles, artefacts, events and good practices to manage projects other than IT is presented. Particularly, the model structure and operations are described. The userguide of the model is proposed.
Further investigations will be necessary in order to implement the proposed model.
