Overview

This AgilePM (version 2) training course was launched in 2011 by APMG and the DSDM Consortium to address the need to run projects in an agile way. AgilePM provides multiple benefits to organisations, projects, teams, and products, such as better product quality, higher customer satisfaction, increased project control, and reduced risk. 

The course is equally divided between the theory behind agile project management and interactive practical experience of the techniques and disciplines involved. Delegates will receive a copy of the Agile Project Management handbook and take the Foundation exam at the end of the course.

Who will benefit from this training course?

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

Learning Objectives

This AgilePM course will give delegates a practical understanding of how to use agile behaviours and techniques at scale. As agile grew in popularity there was a rising demand to scale agile to suit larger sitautions, but a lot of the success of agile is with small, co-located teams.

On this course you will learn how to be agile at a larger scale by wrapping agile project management disciplines around the delivery aspects of agile. This allows you to ‘be agile’ in more complex environments where stricter governance or compliance is needed such as it is with most large organisations today.

By becoming certified in Agile Project Management, this course helps you to stay current within your own organisation and in today’s fast moving marketplace

There are no pre-requisites for the course. Some evening work is required.

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