Postgraduation Agile Project Management

Over the last few decades, Agile has changed the world of information technology (IT) and significantly increased the success rate of software development projects. This method has improved the quality, speed, and efficiency of responses to the market while increasing the motivation and productivity of IT teams. However, it did not stop there!


All over the world, not just in IT but in all sectors, companies are adopting Agile principles to navigate the volatility and uncertainty of the market.

This shift has consolidated Agile as a natural progression in management techniques applicable to various product and service development sectors to increase productivity and organisational effectiveness.


In contrast to conventional methods, Agile introduces an innovative management mentality. It emphasises adaptable and rapid decision-making, promoting agile transformations and disciplined execution.

This approach is not limited to project management; it is about fostering environments conducive to innovation.

Agile project teams, characterised by their small size and interdisciplinary expertise, are perfect for breaking down complex issues into simple, manageable tasks.

Through rapid prototyping and continuous feedback, they develop solutions that prioritise adaptability, abandon rigid planning and promote shared responsibility for results, including growth, profitability and customer satisfaction.

By adopting the Agile mindset, organisations keep pace with market dynamics, lead innovation, and focus on customer satisfaction.


Our postgraduation in Agile Project Management is designed to equip participants with today’s most relevant related skills.

It is not just about learning a few agile methodologies, techniques and tools; it is about adopting a mindset that values flexibility, responsiveness and responsible management. Join us to be at the forefront of this Agile revolution, shaping the future of business in all sectors.

André Carreiro

Director of Application Development, Consultant, Trainer, and, University Lecturer

With an early vocation for integrating the world of Management with that of Information Systems and Technologies, he began his career supporting Strategic Marketing software in the Management MBA programme at UCP while studying for a degree in Business Management.

After graduating, he coordinated client-mission teams, where his contribution was precisely to automate processes, reducing the time it took to create and edit reports from weeks to hours, using formulas and VBA in Excel, and integrating these objects automatically into Word.

With the evolution towards more advanced technologies, he helped develop analytical systems for banking and telecommunications, coordinating technical and functional teams. At BPI, for example, he worked on creating the Marketing department’s Datamart, based on MicroStrategy. At the then TMN, now MEO/Altice, he worked on creating the first Datawarehouse, based on Microsoft SQL Server, MicroStrategy, and SAS, and establishing the modelling rules used. Also noteworthy was the management of the organisation’s first Data Mining project and the orientation towards Database Marketing, which was still in its infancy.

In 2002, to complement his degree in Management and following a career devoted to Information Systems, he took a Master’s degree in Information Systems Management at UTL-ISEG.

In 2006, he moved to Angola, where he was able to get to know in depth an industry that is at the forefront of knowledge of analytical tools, where he spent three years deepening that knowledge, but also reviewing and renewing the many areas and organisations that were yet to benefit from these advances.

In 2012, he also travelled to Mozambique, where he was certified in multiple Oracle applications and applied these technologies in telecommunications.

In 2013, he took on the Director of Application Development role at the Reditus Group, having developed offerings in Advanced Analytics, Low-code, Web Development, Mobile, Enterprise Content Management, Machine Learning, Robotisation and Automation, among many others.

His main clients include the Bank of Portugal, the Francisco Manuel dos Santos Foundation (Pordata), the Agency for Insurance and Pension Funds, Vortal, Fidelidade, Tranquilidade, the National Oil and Gas Agency (Angola), Taurus (Switzerland), among many others.

In collaboration with Horácio Lopes, he participates as content coordinator in the newDATAmagazine® editorial project, which focuses on management and information systems.

He is currently studying for a PhD in Information Systems at NOVA IMS.
