AgilePM Certification

Part of the Agile portfolio: Agile Scrum Foundation, Agile Scrum Master, Agile Product Owner and AgilePM

AgilePM course description

The AgilePM® course and associated certification are targeted to project managers and project participants want to be agile. Our course is based on the DSDM Atern agile approach that offers the agility that comes with the agile approach whilst ensuring better controls than light-weight agile approaches like Scrum. AgilePM® provides proven scalability and the ability to work with corporate management processes, supported by a track record of success over more than 20 years in IT and non-IT projects.

An AgilePM® certification allows candidates to develop and gain an understanding of agile and the ability to apply relevant project management methods, leading to successful agile projects. You would also be able to tailor projects to different situations, improve business/stakeholder engagement and involvement with projects and improve time-to-market, feedback whilst ensuring effective controls are in place to ensure project success.

Target Audience

Scrum is the most used Agile methodology and is suitable for all professionals looking to keep their knowledge up to date with the latest developments in the fields of IT and Project Management, particularly those leading or participating in projects. The Product Owner role focuses on bringing value for the customer and value for the business, through Project Management techniques.

In particular, the certification is suitable for professionals working in the areas of Project Management, Software development, IT Service Management and Business Management.
