By Ben Lewis, Project Controls Academy trainee I joined i3Works in October 2020, and am starting to settle into my new role as a trainee. In the run up to Christmas, it seems like a good time to check in let people know how I’m getting on.
by Alec Bosomworth, senior consultant and Agile PM subject matter expert Agile is seen as a new and exciting term; one which is being increasingly used as more and more organisations choose to “go agile”, with promises of better customer satisfaction and rapid delivery.
