Certified Agile Project Management - Foundation & Practitioner

The course builds on the DSDM approach and differs from other Agile training in that it places Agile within a comprehensive project cycle.

The objective is to enable delivery of Agile Projects in organisations requiring standards, rigour and visibility, while at the same time enabling the fast pace, change and empowerment provided by Agile.

Through examples and scenarios delivered by an experienced trainer, this course provides delegates with an understanding of how the Agile Project Management process can enable planning, management and control for predictable Agile project deliveries.

The training and exam format will be familiar to anyone who knows PRINCE2.  Exams are taken as part of the training course.  The Foundation element concentrates on ensuring basic understanding of concepts and terminology.  The Practitioner element is more concerned with application to real life scenarios. Most delegates choose to take the combined Foundation and Practitioner course.


Target Audience:

Project Managers, Team Leaders, Business Analysts, Scrum Masters, Solution Developers and Solution Testers. 

It is well suited to those with previous qualifications such as Scrum, APM or PRINCE2.
