AgilePM Certification - Virtual Classroom Training
Learn a practical and repeatable methodology to keep you ahead in a world where the pace of change continues to accelerate.
The AgilePM accredited training course has been developed in response to the increasing complexity and unpredictability of modern business environments, which have made it crucial for project management teams to be highly responsive while maintaining both control and reliability.
The Agile Project Management Foundation & Practitioner course is a globally recognised qualification accredited by APMG International, designed precisely to provide a practical understanding of Agile Project Management and how it can be applied in working environments.
Delegates are provided with a set of invaluable skills and insights, covering the following key topics:
- laying the groundwork for effective Agile projects
- managing and delivering flexible Agile projects
- the specific management styles needed to manage Agile projects with respect to "traditional" projects
- the relationship between Agile and other project management methods such as PRINCE2®
The AgilePM Foundation and Practitioner certification takes the principles of the DSDM Agile Project Framework and shows how these can be applied to achieve an ideal balance between the standards, rigour and visibility needed for good project management, and the fast pace, change and empowerment provided by Agile.
In addition, it allows candidates to certify their newly acquired skills by preparing them for the Agile Foundation and Practitioner exams, which are taken on the 2nd and 4th days of the training respectively.
