Overview

The Agile Project Management (AgilePM) Foundation course, accredited by the APMG, and created in conjunction with the DSDM Consortium, provides the world's first independent certification in Agile Project Management.

It provides delegates with an understanding of how the Agile Project Management process can enable planning, management and control of successful and well-controlled Agile projects. The course provides the opportunity to gain certification as an Agile Project Manager at Foundation level.

While approaches such as eXtreme Programming, Scrum and Lean Software Development are widely used for evolutionary change, this approach to Agile Project Management is based on DSDM, the only established Agile approach encompassing a project concept and lifecycle.

Organisations often need an Agile approach which recognises the need for a project discipline with a deadline for delivery, a clear target for business value realisation and a controlled budget. Agile Project Management presents a coherent and easily replicated approach to planning, resourcing and managing a successful and well-disciplined Agile project.
