Agile Project Management Training

internationally accredited courses


A full Agile product and project lifecycle

As the pace of change accelerates and pressure builds to deliver greater value, traditional project management methods that worked in more stable and predictable environments become less effective.

The project management team needs to respond quickly and with agility, whilst still demonstrating control and reliability.

APMG-International’s Agile Project Management offers a practical and repeatable agile based project methodology, using sensible governance in a flexible Agile based project lifecycle approach that can be scaled to implement large transformational change. Please read on…

What is:

The Agile Project Management (AgilePM®) Certification is an internationally recognized qualification that addresses the needs of those working in a project-focused environment who are evolving into an agile organization.

Agile PM is based on the Dynamic Systems Development Method (DSDM); one of the most mature agile approaches developed in 1994 to address the need for agile, iterative ways of working whilst including sensible governance and visibility.

This event will:

  • Explain how to lay the foundations for successful agile projects
  • Explain how an agile project is managed
  • Clarify the different management styles needed for successful agile projects (compared to traditional waterfall projects)
