This workshop, based on the APMG International’s Agile Project Management (AgilePM®), focuses on the management of benefits from Agile initiatives. Since its introduction in 2010, AgilePM has fast established itself as the world’s leading framework and certification for Agile project management, with over 170,000 exams sat worldwide.
The DSDM (Dynamic System Development Method) Consortium was founded in 1994 to formalise and maintain best practice in systems development methods and management. DSDM’s AgilePM® has evolved into an industry recognised method for managing software development projects in an agile environment. In order to promote standards and consistency in understanding and operation of AgilePM®, the DSDM Consortium has collaborated with APMG International to develop an accredited standard for Agile Project Management.
Led by an accredited expert, an interactive multi-media approach is used to bring the syllabus to life and prepare you for the examinations. The course is specifically designed for those seeking professional recognition and certification in project management but is also suitable for those who are currently managing or involved with major software development projects employing agile methods.
