Agile Project Management Foundation — A 3 day course
This course covers the newly launched certification by APMG and the DSDM Consortium that has been created to sit alongside PRINCE2 as an approach to project management.
The course is equally divided between the theory of the new wave of agile project management and the practical experience of the techniques and disciplines involved.
Delegates will receive a copy of the Agile Project Management handbook and will sit the Agile Project Management Foundation exam at the end of the course.
To give delegates a practical understanding of Agile Project Management which is based on the internationally recognised framework of DSDM Atern. This will enable delegates to become immediately productive as a project manager in an agile project environment.
To highlight the difference between simple lightweight agile approaches which typically operate at the solution delivery (or 'work package') level and the greater holistic view of how multiple work streams are co-ordinated with the appropriate level of governance and control.
The course will also prepare delegates for the Foundation exam.
