Agile Project Management Foundation Training
Combine flexibility with proven processes for successful agile project delivery with the Agile Project Management training and certification. The Agile Project Management Foundation certification provides you with the core principles you need to facilitate a successful project, while allowing a degree of scope and agility that not many other methodologies provide. With a clear, concise and detailed perspective on project productivity, the AgilePM certification is useful to all candidates and competency levels ranging from highly experienced project managers to those new to the industry.
Agile’s influence on the project management industry continues to rise at pace. More organizations and project professionals than ever are embracing agile tools and frameworks as they aim to increase the success of – and return on investment from – projects and other change initiatives. Key benefits often attributed to agile include improved revenue and speed to market, developing the right product or solution (through iterative development and incremental delivery) and increased collaboration and customer satisfaction.
Agile Project Management is it the ability of an organisation to:
- Adapt quickly to market changes – internally and externally
- Respond rapidly and flexibly to customer demands
- Adapt and lead change in a productive and cost-effective way without compromising quality
- Continuously be at a competitive advantage
Business agility is concerned with the adoption of the evolution of values, behaviours and capabilities. These enable businesses and individuals to be more adaptive, creative and resilient when dealing with complexity, uncertainty and change leading to improved well-being and better outcomes.
The training has a balance of theory and practical experience of the techniques of Agile project management. The Agile Project Management Framework 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)
- prepare you for the Foundation exam
- provide integration with PRINCE2®
Based on the Agile Business Consortium’s Agile Project Framework, AgilePM guidance offers a practical, scalable and repeatable methodology that achieves an ideal balance between the standards, rigour and visibility required for good project management, and the fast-pace, change and empowerment provided by agile.
