AgilePM has fast established itself as the world's leading framework and certification for Agile project management. Courses delivered on-line from our Live Virtual Classroom and also at our Southampton-Solent venue. Bundle with another ELCAS funded course to maximise your funding.
The AgilePM framework is becoming a popular choice for many project managers and their organisations. Its iterative approach to project management coupled with rapid decision making and a focus on quality is attracting many to this highly recognised qualification. This is a useful and highly relevant qualification for 2020 and beyond.
The world of project management has changed significantly over recent years. Until recently, much of the corporate world predominantly used traditional, sequential, “waterfall” approaches for projects. Far too many projects were failing, for a variety of reasons, but mainly because projects were just too big and too long, communication and business engagement were poor and progress was measured in percentage complete, rather than business value delivered. AgilePM TM guidance 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 is on developing solutions incrementally enabling project teams to react effectively to changing requirements, whilst empowering project personnel and encouraging increased collaboration and ownership.
AgilePM certification is aimed at aspiring and practising project managers, and at team members wishing to adopt a flexible, collaborative approach to project management whilst maintaining or improving standards, quality and pace of delivery.
It’s a very useful qualification for those still serving or going through resettlement wanting a valuable project management method for their new career as a project manager.
The guidance is based on Agile Business Consortium’s Agile Project Framework and is underpinned by the framework’s eight principles for effective agile project delivery:
1. Focus on the business need
2. Deliver on time
4. Never compromise quality
5. Build incrementally from firm foundations
6. Develop iteratively
7. Communicate continuously and clearly
8. Demonstrate control
The AgilePM guidance and supporting training courses explain how to lay the foundations for successful agile projects and manage an agile project from start to finish.
