AGILE Project Management Practitioner

What is AgilePM?

The Agile Project Management™ (AgilePM) certification aims to address the needs of those working in a project-focused environment who want to be Agile. It provides organisations with a leaner, more structured approach to project management enabling them to respond far more quickly to change and provides a way to implement high-priority initiatives.

It works alongside formal approaches such as PRINCE2® and compliments quality processes such as ISO 9001 and CMM1.

Based on the proven fundamentals within DSDM Atern, the certification provides the ability to deliver Agile Projects in organisations requiring standards, rigour and visibility around Project Management, while at the same time enabling the fast pace, change and empowerment provided by Agile.

The Training ByteSize Practitioner course will:

  • Explain how to lay the foundations for successful agile projects.
  • Explain how an agile project is managed.
  • Clarify the different management styles needed for successful agile projects (compared to “traditional” projects).
  • Learn how to successfully apply AgilePM to your projects.

Why AgilePM Practitioner?

The practitioner level empowers, encourages and equips you with an in-depth knowledge of not just the certification, but also how to apply and implement these principles into the life of a project manager on a daily basis.
