Agile Project Management (AgilePM®) Foundation

AgilePM® certification aims to address the needs of those working in a project-focused environment who want to be agile. The Agile Project Management Handbook provides advice, supported by Hints and Tips based on the DSDM Atern approach, on how to manage a project in an Agile way. AgilePM® offers a practical 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. The focus of agile project management is on developing solutions incrementally enabling project teams to react effectively to changing requirements, whilst empowering project personnel, and encouraging increased collaboration and ownership.

The foundation AgilePM® certification lives up to its name by providing the users of the method with the core principles needed 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.
