APMG Agile Project Management Foundation Online with Exam Guarantee

Overview

The Agile Project Management™ (AgilePM) certification aims to address the needs of those working in a project-focused environment who want to be agile. 

Agile projects are characterised by highly self-empowered teams delivering products incrementally with a focus on early delivery of real benefits to the business. Unlike more traditional approaches, agile projects fix time, cost and quality at the early phases of the project and manage contingency by developing a clear view of priorities in collaboration with the business. 

Based on the proven fundamentals within DSDM, the AgilePM certification lives up to its name by providing users of the method with the core principles needed to facilitate a successful project, whilst allowing a degree of scope and agility that not many other methodologies provide. This Agile Project Management™ (AgilePM) Foundation e-learning has been fully accredited and will prepare you for the formal examination.

DURATION

The e-learning for the Foundation training will take around eight to ten hours to complete.

TARGET AUDIENCE

With a clear, concise and detailed perspective on project productivity, the Agile PM certification is useful to all candidates and competency levels ranging from highly experienced project managers to those new to the industry.
