If you are good at managing lots of different tasks and lots of different people and you can lead a team, then Project Management may be the career for you. The AgilePM Practitioner Project Management certification aims to address the needs of those working in a project-focused environment who want to be Agile.

Why AgilePM Foundation?

The Agile Project Management™ (AgilePM®) certification aims to address the needs of those working in a project-focused environment who want to be Agile. It provides organisations with a leaner, more structured approach to project management enabling them to respond far more quickly to change and provides a way to implement high-priority initiatives. It works alongside formal approaches such as PRINCE2® and compliments quality processes such as ISO 9001 and CMM1. If this is your first time learning the Agile methodology, we will help you understand how to bring Agility into your projects, to respond, change and adapt as required, with a greater focus on co-operation with stakeholders which will lead to successful project implementation. Based on the proven fundamentals within DSDM Atern, the certification provides the ability to deliver Agile Projects in organisations requiring standards, rigour and visibility around Project Management, while at the same time enabling the fast pace, change and empowerment provided by Agile.

On this AgilePM® Practitioner course, you will:

  • Explain how to lay the foundations for successful AgilePM® projects
  • Explain how an AgilePM® project is managed
  • Clarify the different management styles needed for successful AgilePM® projects (compared to “traditional” projects)
  • Learn how to successfully apply AgilePM® to your projects.

Why AgilePM Practitioner?

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.

Who will benefit from AgilePM?

  • New and experienced project staff
  • Consultants/contract staff operating in an AgilePM® environment
  • Project Managers considering a career in an AgilePM® environment
  • Anybody wishing to improve employment prospects in an AgilePM® environment.

The Training AgilePM® Practitioner course will cover everything you need to pass the Practitioner exam first time with the flexibility to view the same course on almost any device! Now you can truly learn on the move with no third-party software required – go mobile on your commute, learn from your tablet at home on the sofa, or squeeze in a session from your desktop in the office.
