Overview

The Agile Project Management training course is a stable-mate to PRINCE2, ITIL and Managing Successful Programmes, with accreditation and certification by the APM Group to both Foundation and Practitioner levels.

Agile can be applied to projects regardless of scale or discipline. Agile Project Management Foundation and Practitioner shows Project Sponsors they can adopt Agile with confidence, and provide focus to the entire project team.

Agile approaches such as eXtreme Programming, Scrum and Lean Software Development are becoming increasingly mainstream. They describe how to successfully deliver in complex situations when requirements and possible solutions are subject to continuous change; but they stop short of describing a full project lifecycle with defined Phases, Work Products, Roles and Responsibilities.

This course covers how to operate in such an Agile fashion within an overall project framework which is accredited as a stable-mate to PRINCE2 and based on the DSDM Atern approach. Through practical experience of the Agile style of working, case studies and example scenarios from a highly experienced trainer, it provides delegates with an understanding of how the Agile Project Management process can enable planning, management and control for predictable Agile project deliveries.

The Agile Project Management certification, accredited by APMG offers a boost to your career. Foundation and practitioner certifications makes you an invaluable asset to your employer and clearly differentiated in a competitive market.

Thinking about Onsite?

If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. It's a cost effective option.
