    About AgilePM Foundation

    Agile Project Management Foundation Qualification

    This Agile project management foundation qualification is offered by IPSO FACTO and covers the certification by APMG. It has been created to sit alongside PRINCE2® as an approach to project management. The course is equally divided between the theory of the new wave of agile project management and the practical experience of the techniques and disciplines involved. This is a two day course with one exam, and is the first part of a four day AgilePM Practitioner. You will receive a copy of the official Agile Project Management handbook and will sit the Agile Project Management Foundation exam online on day 2 of the course.


    Target Audience

    The course is aimed at existing project managers or those new to project management who are either adding to their knowledge of traditional methods or who are operating in an agile environment and need to be able to run projects in more complex and scalable situations.

    Questions about Agile Project Management

    Should you sit the AgilePM® practitioner exam or is AgilePM foundation sufficient?

    It depends on the role you are looking for. If you are currently in a project management role, or looking to become a project manager then the practitioner qualification would be the best option. The foundation focuses on the understanding of the method but the practitioner looks at the understanding and application of the method.

    What is the meaning of the Agile Mindset?

    The fundamental principal is to enable an organisation and the people within it to achieve greater agility, and to think in a more agile way.

    How do you determine if a waterfall or agile approach is most suitable for a specific project?

    Waterfall being the PRINCE2® framework. If you have a very clear outcome with clear steps and processes towards that outcome then a waterfall method would be a useful option. However, if there’s an element of complexity and or uncertainty within the project, then an agile approach using AgilePM would be the best choice.
