The principle of agility has its origins in software development and is nowadays applied in various areas. This includes not only various economic sectors, but also science.

Agile projects are characterized by a focus on individuals and interactions, the functionality of systems, a strong orientation towards the target groups (customers) and the permanent willingness to adapt project goals and processes to be able to react as best as possible to changing framework conditions. The latter is particularly important in modern, digital work contexts. This distinguishes the agile approach from traditional project management methods and enables self-organized teams to act more flexibly and improve work results through iterative and interactive sprints.

Applied to the context of science and research, the agile approach means rethinking organizational and project management structures. The collaborative approach can help improve exchanges within and between interdisciplinary teams. Agile structures can also contribute to promoting creativity and innovation in complex scientific research projects such as doctoral studies.

In this workshop, the basics of agile project management are conveyed. This includes the definition of agile roles (product owner, SCRUM master) and their tasks and responsibilities on the one hand. On the other hand, the participants learn about agile artifacts (product and sprint backlogs as well as increments) and agile events (sprint planning, reviews, and retrospectives as well as daily SCRUMS). The participants get an overview of the interaction of these components in agile projects. In addition, various methods of progress monitoring such as the SCRUM Board are presented.
