Agile principles call for iterative and incremental development that improves as a project advances. It’s an effective way to make project corrections as requirements change. In this session, I speak with Megan Torrance about Agile project management for eLearning design and development.
Megan is the chief energy officer of TorranceLearning, an eLearning design and development firm. She has spent over two decades knee-deep in projects involving change management, instructional design, consulting, and systems deployment. She and the TorranceLearning team have developed the LLAMA project management approach, blending Agile with instructional design.
