Choose an Agile Project Management ELCAS funded course to bundle in with other qualifications to maximise your funding. Its only 4 days of training with 2 exams that will be taken online during the course. Agile project management is an excellent qualification and framework for most project managers.
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 is attracting many to this highly recognised qualification. This is a useful and highly relevant qualification for 2022 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.
Agile project management offers a practical and repeatable methodology that achieves an ideal balance between the standards, rigour and visibility required for good project management. 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.
This Agile Project Management ELCAS funded qualification is perfect for those wanting a widely recognised route into project management. The foundation part of the course focuses on an understanding of the method, while the practitioner course also includes the application of the agile method. Its an ideal qualification to choose for your ELCAS funded resettlement especially if you can include your military experience. You might consider bundling Agile Project Management with PRINCE2, APM FFQ, APM PMQ or Change Management using your ELCAS funding.
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.
