APMG Agile Project Management

Agile Project Management (AgilePM®) Course

As the pace of change accelerates and pressure builds to deliver greater value, traditional project management methods that worked in more stable and predictable environments become less reliable. The project management team needs to respond quickly whilst demonstrating control and reliability. Agile Project Management offers a practical and repeatable methodology, combining a process covering the whole project lifecycle with a flexible and more collaborative approach.

Agile projects are characterised by highly self-empowered teams delivering products incrementally with a focus on early delivery of real benefits to the business. Unlike more traditional approaches, Agile projects fix time, cost and quality at the early phases of the project and manage contingency by developing a clear view of priorities in collaboration with the business.

The AgilePM certification lives up to its name by providing users of the methos with the core principles needed to facilitate a successful project, whilst allowing a degree of scope and agility that not many other methodologies provide.

Based on the proven fundamentals within DSDM Atern, this certification provides standards, process and visibility, whilst encouraging the early delivery of benefits by empowering the team. If you are involved with or responsible for projects, then this course agile project management course will offer you valuable skills and insights into this collaborative and flexible approach.
