AgilePM® Foundation eLearning & online exam

Join the Agile Revolution!

Agile project management takes the ideas from Agile software development and applies them to project management. Agile methodologies generally promote a project management process that encourages stakeholder involvement, feedback, objective metrics and effective controls.

COURSE OVERVIEW

Why is AgilePM® so popular?

Agile project management qualifications are rising fast! Whilst agile development methods such as Scrum dominate the software industry, they are gaining popularity in other industries too.

As more businesses adopt agile, they are seeking dedicated agile project management methods to help them. Individuals with agile project management certifications can therefore command a premium in the jobs market.

There are 6 key factors why AgilePM® is proving to be popular.

  1. It provides governance and agility. Based upon the Agile Project Framework (APF) which was established over 20 years ago, AgilePM® blends both corporate governance aspects with key agile concepts and is specifically aimed at project managers. The authors of the APF were the DSDM, one of the founding signatories to the agile manifesto.
  1. Never compromise quality. Never compromising quality is an underlying principle of AgilePM®. This is helped by agreeing high-level acceptance criteria throughout the full project lifecycle.
  1. Risk management. A starting point in AgilePM® for understanding risks is the Project Approach Questionnaire. This enables a shared understanding of project risks and how to mitigate them.
  1. Goes beyond product development approaches. Whereas common agile methods such as Scrum offer product development approaches, they do not address project management. AgilePM® goes further than Scrum by offering an agile project management approach.
  1. Clear roles and responsibilities. AgilePM® assigns clear roles and responsibilities to individuals from the business, user, technical and management areas so that effective stakeholder collaboration can be achieved.
  1. Incorporates popular agile practices. Key agile practices such as MoSCoW, timeboxing and iterative development are incorporated into AgilePM® to support effective product development.

Changing requirements

Agile approaches recognize that users often don’t fully know their requirements when projects start and therefore, they will likely change during the project. Whilst changing requirements can often be problematic in more traditional project management approaches, agile approaches embrace changes in requirements.

On agile projects time and cost are normally the fixed elements but the requirements and scope of the project are variable. Agile therefore is better at delivering on time than more traditional project management approaches.

Agile approaches focus on incremental and iterative releases of products to users and customers, each iteration or incremental release giving the user yet more functionality. Agile can therefore deliver products early to users and this helps users better understand and refine their requirements after a period of use.

AgilePM® is the world’s leading certification in Agile Project Management. The qualification balances robust governance with a collaborative culture that inspires innovation and improves competitive advantage.

AgilePM® Foundation eLearning Course

The APMG-International AgilePM® certification addresses the needs of those who work in planning contexts and who need to be agile. Agile management or agile project management is an interactive method for defining requisites and creating the corresponding output for projects, typically in the fields of engineering or information technology, which are characterised by a strong need for interaction and flexibility.

TESTIMONIALS/ REVIEWS

“Most convenient way to study and take exams. Good course, well developed.

Good service from the support staff of AVC."  Tim Hansson

"Good and efficient :) online training course.  I liked the practical examples and  exercises.

Perfect to able to apply to my work and pass my exam."  Thomas Qvistgaard

"Solid education experience, well organized and well thought out. Would recommend and would use AVC again."  David Johnsson

"The training course was very good. It is, of course, a must to read the whole manual and make sure you understand it, but the course was able to indicate for me where I should focus more (the highlights per chapter). It was also nice that I could practice my knowledge on the example test since it helped me understand the format of the test, where I should focus and what knowledge gaps I had before taking the real test. I will say that I may have preferred it more than a class course since I was able to adjust my studing time around my busy schedule."  Maria, M (Project Manager)
