There are a number of routes available to you once you have gained the AgilePM® Practitioner certification. If you wish to learn about a more traditional project management approach which can be used to work alongside AgilePM®, you could gain a PRINCE2® certification. If you are familiar with PRINCE2® already and would like to understand how it can work with Agile, you could look at the PRINCE2 Agile® certification.
