Sprint – Agile project management

Here you will find all products and free content we have about sprint. Airbornleadership makes both e-learning, books, tools and project management articles, which can help in working with sprints.

Working in sprints is widely used in software projects and product development projects. The term sprint derives from Scrum and other agile methods.

A sprint is a more flexible way to execute your projects, as they are divided into small chunks. It is called agile project management because the project can be adjusted after each sprint.

Who is airborn leadership?

As a project manager I have always lacked a platform where I could click in and get inspiration, relevant knowledge and concrete tools, regardless of time and place. A wireless toolbox where knowledge came to me through the air. A help that could give me a much needed boost in my current challenge.

You have never been more important as a project manager. Projects are the engine in developing a better business, new products, improvements in society and the global transformation to sustainable energy and production. Your leadership is therefore crucial. As a leader and project manager, you are the tool that creates the results.

I hope airborn leadership can be your gateway to knowledge within project management, no matter what journey you are on.
