Overview

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.

Once the booking confirmation has been recieved, candidates will be sent pre-course study work via email which will take approximately 3-5 hours to complete. This pre-course study work is comprised of:

  • Reading the Agile Pre-Course Study Guide PDF
  • Reading Chapters 1 to 4 from the official Agile Project Management Handbook v2.0 PDF

A full hard copy of the Agile Project Management Handbook v2.0 will be provided to you upon arrival on the course.

Please note that delegates will be required to complete homework exercises each evening.

The Course Structure and handouts were very helpful, Ian was an excellent teacher he knew the subject matter inside out and the class got involved in really good conversations.
