Description

Introduction
Software development teams have been using techniques such as Scrum, XP (eXtreme Programming), Lean and others for over a decade.

Agile Project Management goes beyond these techniques to bring innovation, responsiveness and quality to projects across the full gamut of human endeavour.

This course will introduce candidates to principles, processes and practices that can be applied in any sector.

The Agile Project Management qualification aims to address the needs of those working in a project-focused environment who want to be Agile.

Based on the proven fundamentals within DSDM Atern, the certification proves that delegates have gained the knowledge and skills required to deliver Agile Projects in organisations requiring standards, rigour and visibility around Project Management, while at the same time enabling the fast pace, change and empowerment provided by Agile.

The training is delivered by highly experienced project management trainers, with participation by the delegates being integral to the learning process.
