UML for Project Managers — A 1 or 2-day seminar
Please note that this course has been retired and is no longer available. Please see the UML page for courses currently available in this subject area.
The UML is fast becoming the standard design and development technique for IT projects. This seminar introduces UML from the perspective of a Project Manager and shows how its use can de-risk and simplify projects. The UML provides the basis for low-risk project development, but for this to be realised the Project Manager must be able to understand and manage the process so that a win-win outcome is achieved. By the end of this seminar Project Managers will understand the UML and its terminology, and its influence on Acceptance tests, Development Lifecycle, iterative development and deployment. An overview of current OO thinking is part of this seminar together with the exciting direction of UML 2.0 and later versions. Techniques will be demonstrated by the use of Rational Rose together with Java toolsets, such as JBuilder
Attendees receive a CD of reference material on the subject.

- Show how UML integrates with Analysis, Design, Test and Deployment
