About the course

Overview

To stay relevant, businesses need to quickly adapt to change. Traditional project management methodologies look to understand and document the change before moving to implementation.

Agile methodologies offer the tools and frameworks needed to quickly implement change by building incremental business value.

Although it was developed for software development, agile is now widely used across the business with successful results.

Agile Project Management offers a set of frameworks that enables delegates to successfully deliver projects in a fast-paced business environment.

We will notify you of your results.

Many delegates report increased confidence in their skills after the training. We believe the importance of confidence is often underrated in organisations. The truth is to progress your career in the right direction you need confidence. It is no surprise many of our learners report an increase in confidence and job satisfaction.  Moreover, the certification gives you recognition and if you are already working as a business analyst it will formalise your knowledge. As a result your employers, stakeholders or clients will trust you that you can deliver quality work in an efficient way. 

I found the Agile Project Management Foundation and Practitioner course I took both engaging and insightful. There being other professional delegates on the course made for real world examples that brought to light the theory. The in person classes permitted live questions and queries to be worked through, helping with explanations. The tutors know what they're talking about and were extremely patient!
