OBJECTIVES

The foundation AgilePM certification lives up to its name by providing the users of the method with the core principles needed to facilitate a successful project while allowing a degree of scope and agility that not many other methodologies provide. With a clear, concise and detailed perspective on project productivity, the AgilePM certification is useful to all candidates and competency levels ranging from highly experienced project managers to those new to the industry.

Combine flexibility with a proven process for successful agile project delivery. The world of project management has changed significantly over recent years. Until recently, much of the corporate world predominantly used traditional, sequential, “waterfall” approaches for projects.

AgilePM guidance offers a practical and repeatable methodology that achieves an ideal balance between the standards, rigour and visibility required for good project management, and the fast pace, change and empowerment provided by agile.

Understand the background of agile in project management and the differences compared to traditional/alternative approaches. Equip yourself with the core principles, concepts and processes required for successful agile projects.

This 2 day accredited course provides participants with a thorough grounding in the Agile approach and is comprised of three main elements.

The Foundation exam is included.

This class is also available as On-Demand - 12-month subscription.
