Agile Project Management Practitioner and Foundation

Who is this course for?

The AgilePM Practitioner course is aimed at project managers. You may be adding to your knowledge of traditional project management approaches or you may be operating in an agile environment and need to be able to run projects in more complex and scalable situations.

About the Course

This is an accredited course launched in 2011 by APMG and the DSDM Consortium (now known as the Agile Business Consortium) to address the need to run projects in an agile way. The course is equally divided between the theory behind agile project management and interactive practical experiences of the techniques and disciplines involved with working this way. The course contains two exams that enable delegates to become certified in Agile Project Management (AgilePM) at Foundation and Practitioner level.

How is the course structured?

The course is divided equally between the theory of agile project management and the practical experience of the techniques and disciplines involved. Key areas of the course include: 

Organisation

  • Roles and Responsibilities
  • Teams and Team Structures
  • Empowerment

Preparation

  • Project Constraints
  • Success Factors
  • Approach Questionnaire

The Lifecycle

  • The Phases and Products
  • Lifecycle Configuration

Techniques

  • Communication
  • MoSCoW
  • Timeboxing
  • Estimation and Measurement
  • Quality and Maintainability
  • Planning, Control and Risk
  • Implementing Agile Project Management
Is there an exam?

The AgilePM Foundation exam is a 40-minute, multiple choice exam with 50 questions. The AgilePM Practitioner exam lasts 2½ hours and is in the objective testing style (complex multiple choice). You are allowed to use your AgilePM Handbook during the Practitioner exam. The pass mark for each exam is 50%.

Anything else?

Your course cost covers all course materials, which includes a print copy of the PowerPoint slides, exercises and case study; your copy of the Agile Project Management Handbook; all applicable exam fees; your lunches and refreshments whilst on the course (public scheduled training courses only) and your e-certificate upon successful completion of the course. There are absolutely no further costs to pay.

What’s next?

The course will give delegates a practical understanding of how to use agile behaviours and techniques at scale. Agile has grown rapidly in recent years and is now ‘mainstream’ but a lot of the success of agile is with small, co-located teams.

This course shows you how to be agile at a larger scale by wrapping agile project management disciplines around the delivery aspects of agile. This allows you to ‘be agile’ in more complex environments where stricter governance or compliance is needed such as it is with most large organisations today.

By becoming certified, this course will help you to stay current within your own organisation and in today’s fast moving marketplace.
