Agile Project Management (APMG) 26 February - 2 March (5 days)

Date: 26.02.2018

Time: TBC

Location: Explosive Learning Soulutions, 4 The Terraces, Harwell Campus

Why it’s important
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.

What it covers
The foundation certification provides 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. The practitioner level empowers, encourages and equips you with an in-depth knowledge of not just the certification, but also how to apply and implement these principles into the life of a project manager on a daily basis. The guidance is based on DSDM Consortium's Agile Project Framework and is underpinned by DSDM's eight principles for effective agile project delivery:
•Focuses on the Business Need
•Build Incrementally Firm Foundations
•Communicate Continuously and Clearly
•Deliver on Time
•Never Compromise Quality
•Develop Iteratively
•Demonstrate Control

Who will benefit

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. Organisations and individuals benefit by delivering change faster, at a lower cost and with lower risk by continually validating project milestones against business objectives. You will achieve better communication and control over projects and adapt project plans without disrupting the project budget, timescale and scope.
