AgilePM is the industry standard for a full agile project approach. It provides a balance between controlling your projects, being flexible and able to adapt to changes as the occur and is aimed at developing solutions incrementally, which allows project teams to react effectively to change and to increase collaboration.
The AgilePM focuses on eight principles for effective project delivery:
- Focus on the business need
- Build incrementally from firm foundations
- Communicate continuously and clearly
- Deliver on time
- Never compromise on quality
- Develop in iterations
- Demonstrate control
Following this course, you will be able to:
- Deliver solutions to your client incrementally
- Empower your project personnel
- Encourage collaboration and ownership of tasks and the project
Who Should Attend
The AgilePM certification is ideal for aspiring, new and existing project managers who wish to advance their career and projects by adopting a fast-paced, flexible and collaborative approach to project management without compromising quality or standards.
There are no prerequisites for the Foundation course. However, you must hold the Foundation certification to attend the Practitioner course.
The AgilePM Foundation certification provides participants with the 8 core principles needed to facilitate a successful project, whilst providing flexibility that other project management methodologies do not provide.
The course includes classroom-based learning, group work and comprehensive notes and self-study to enhance individual learning. The AgilePM accredited trainer uses a mix of input and practical sessions, combining a case study with mock exam papers to familiarise participants with the exam format and to impart relevant skills and knowledge by working through real-life examples and scenarios.
Participants will need to complete some private evening study during the delivery of the course. To obtain the AgilePM Foundation certification you must achieve 50% or higher in the exam held at the end of day three, with a re-sit offered for unsuccessful participants at no extra cost.
Once you have attained the Foundation certification, AgilePM Practitioner builds up to the next level of qualification and equips participants with the knowledge and understanding required to apply AgilePM theory to their projects.
Following the course, participants will be able to deliver solutions incrementally in accordance with the AgilePM methodology, from decision making at project initiation and critical points in the lifecycle of the project, while empowering project personnel and encouraging increased collaboration and ownership.
Participants receive a programme of pre-workshop self study (approximately 12 - 15 hours) using the manual and a study framework to assist with this activity. If more than six months have lapsed since you passed the Foundation component, please contact us regarding preparation for this exam. Note that the AgilePM Manual is not included in this course, as you should still have this from a prior Foundation course. Manuals are available for purchase at an additional cost if required.
