Are you Agile? Are you Certified?

Agile product development has become the norm in the last 5 years – now moving out of the software industry to become mainstream.

But the missing element! Agile Project Management

Agile methods such as Scrum, Kanban, and Lean benefit from project management and governance structure as described in the APMG AgilePM® Foundation and Practitioner Certifications. These are based on the DSDM project framework.

Learn how to:

  • explain agile to project stakeholders
  • explain the agile philosophy and project lifecycle
  • identify the agile project products
  • set up and work with agile project teams
  • run facilitated workshops
  • plan an agile project using timeboxes
  • plan iteratively and incrementally
  • identify and prioritise requirements in an agile way
  • develop the right level of documentation in an agile project

The Foundation qualification is a pre-requisite for the Practitioner qualification.

The Agile Project Management Practitioner level empowers, encourages and equips you with an in-depth knowledge of not just the Agile principles, but also how to apply and implement these principles into the life of a project manager on a daily basis.
