AgilePM® Practitioner

Based on the proven fundamentals within DSDM Atern, the certification provides the ability to deliver agile projects in organizations requiring standards, rigor and visibility around Project Management, while at the same time enabling the fast pace, change and empowerment provided by agile.

Course description:

The course comprises a mixture of input sessions, group exercises and examination based practical work. All delegates are encouraged to actively participate during the practical sessions to gain the full benefit during the training. During the course, delegates will undertake mock examination and gain feedback on the progress towards eventual success. To prepare effectively for the APMG AgilePM® exam, delegates should be prepared to undertake revision and exam preparation work in the evening.
