Agile PM – Agile Project Management

Snap Tech’s Agile Project Management offers a practical and repeatable methodology, combining a process covering the whole Agile project lifecycle with a flexible approach.

As the pace of change accelerates and pressure builds to deliver greater value, traditional project management methods that worked in more stable and predictable environments become less effective. The project management team needs to respond quickly whilst demonstrating control and reliability.

Our AgilePM certification is targeted at professionals who are involved in managing agile projects and programmes or are adopting an agile and lean approach in their organization. The Agile approach to project management can be applied to all types of projects regardless of scale or discipline.

/ WHAT IS

The Agile Project Management (AgilePM®) certification aims to address the needs of those working in a project-focused environment who want to be Agile.

Based on the proven fundamentals of the most mature of the Agile options, DSDM Atern, the certification provides the ability to deliver Agile Projects in organizations requiring sensible governance and visibility from their Project Management, while at the same time enabling the benefits, customer collaborative and iterative development provided by Agile.

/ APPROACH AND DURATION

The event is delivered by an experienced and accredited trainer who will facilitate interactive group work and encourage the learning experience through the use of multiple training mediums, group work and exercises.

The event is delivered over 5 days.
