The APMG-International Agile Project Management (AgilePM®) certification aims to address the needs of those working in a project-focused environment who want to be Agile. The Agile Project Management (AgilePM) guidance is developed in partnership with the DSDM Consortium and offers a practical and repeatable methodology that achieves 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 focus of agile project management is on developing solutions incrementally enabling project teams to react effectively to changing requirements, whilst empowering project personnel and encouraging increased collaboration and ownership. The guidance is based on DSDM Consortium's Agile Project Framework and is underpinned by DSDM's eight principles for effective agile project delivery.
The AgilePM guidance and supporting training courses explain how to lay the foundations for successful agile projects and manage an agile project from start to finish. AgilePM certification is aimed at aspiring and practicing project managers, and at team members wishing to adopt a fast-paced, flexible and collaborative approach to project management whilst maintaining required standards and rigour.
