APMG Agile Project Management Foundation with Practitioner (AgilePM®)

AgilePM
4 days

Course Overview

This Agile Project Management course covers the newly launched certification by APMG and the DSDM Consortium that has been created to sit alongside PRINCE2 as an approach to project management. The course is equally divided between the theory of the new wave of agile project management and the practical experience of the techniques and disciplines involved. Delegates will receive a copy of the Agile Project Management handbook and will sit the Foundation and Practitioner exams during the course. On passing these exams, participants will become certified in Agile Project Management.

Course Objectives

To give delegates a practical understanding of Agile Project Management which is based on the internationally recognised framework of DSDM Atern. This will enable delegates to become immediately productive as a project manager in an agile project environment. To highlight the difference between simple lightweight agile approaches which typically operate at the solution delivery (or ‘work package’) level and the greater holistic view of how multiple work streams are co-ordinated with the appropriate level of governance and control. This Agile Project Management course will also prepare delegates for the Foundation and Practitioner exams.

Who will this course benefit?

The course is aimed at Project Managers who are either adding to their knowledge of traditional approaches such as PRINCE2, or who are operating in an agile environment and need to be able to run projects in more complex and scalable situations.

Duration: 

4 day non-residential
