APMG AgilePM® Foundation and Practitioner Course

Summary

 

The APMG-International AgilePM® certification aims to address the needs of those working in a project-focused environment who want to be agile. This course 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.

Why it’s important

The focus of agile project management is on developing solutions incrementally enabling project teams to react effectively to changing requirements, whilst empowering project personnel and encouraging increased collaboration and ownership.

What it covers

The foundation certification provides 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. The practitioner level empowers, encourages and equips you with an in-depth knowledge of not just the certification, but also how to apply and implement these principles into the life of a project manager on a daily basis. The guidance is based on DSDM Consortium’s Agile Project Framework and is underpinned by DSDM’s eight principles for effective agile project delivery:

  • Focuses on the business need
  • Collaborate
  • Build incrementally firm foundations
  • Communicate continuously and clearly
  • Deliver on time
  • Never compromise quality
  • Develop iteratively
  • Demonstrate control

Who will benefit

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. Organisations and individuals benefit by delivering change faster, at a lower cost and with lower risk by continually validating project milestones against business objectives. You will achieve better communication and control over projects and adapt project plans without disrupting the project budget, timescale and scope.

Duration

Five days. If a re-registration is required, a two day practitioner element is to be conducted.
