Learn all the key benefits of Agile and prepare for the world's leading certification in Agile Project Management.

Agile techniques have been gaining traction in recent years, helping companies to work more efficiently and effectively when delivering projects. This AgilePM course shows how to successfully combine Agile techniques with more traditional governance methodologies, such as PRINCE2® and PMI®.

Overview

Agile techniques such as Scrum are highly regarded and can be wildly successful. Scrum on its own, however, focusses principally on getting work done. In this course, you will learn what Agile means, and will also learn how the DSDM framework wraps up techniques such as Scrum with a full project management lifecycle. DSDM is the name of the framework you will learn, and AgilePM is the certification for this framework.

Understanding the different management style needed for successful agile projects compared to traditional projects will mean you can tailor your approach to different situations. Knowing how you can combine this knowledge with the more traditional management methodologies will allow you to adapt to a changing business environment.

Who is the course aimed at?

This course is aimed at both Project Managers and all others involved in Project Management. The course is especially useful for anyone in engineering and information technology development for software projects and product or application development.
