About The Course

The Agile Project Management (AgilePM®) is the world’s leading framework and certification for Agile Project Management. The AgilePM® certifications aim to address the needs of those working in a project-focused environment who want to be agile – providing proven scalability and the ability to work with corporate management processes, supported by a track record of success over many years in IT and non-IT projects.

Agile projects are characterised by highly self-empowered teams delivering products incrementally with a focus on early delivery of real benefits to the business. Unlike more traditional approaches, agile projects fix time, cost and quality at the early phases of the project and manage contingency by developing a clear view of priorities in collaboration with the business.

SkillPoint offers the following AgilePM® certifications:
• AgilePM® Foundation, and
AgilePM® Practitioner.

The accredited AgilePM® Foundation e-learning course provides you with an understanding of the core principles needed to facilitate a successful project using Agile methodology and fully prepares you for the foundation examination. It is broken into bite-size sessions, combining leading-edge multimedia and interactive exercises for optimum enjoyment and knowledge retention. The AgilePM Foundation level course will enable you to gain sufficient knowledge and understanding of the Agile, practical and repeatable, methodology in order to adopt it, achieve an ideal balance between the standards, rigour and visibility required for good project management, and the fast-pace, change and empowerment provided by Agile.

The certification is aimed at current and aspiring project management professionals who require an understanding of the core principles needed to facilitate a successful project using Agile methodology. Also Agile team members or other professionals working with, or within, organisation that has adopted Agile methodology would benefit from AgilePM® Foundation course.
