AgilePM provides the ability to deliver Agile projects in organisations requiring standards, rigour and visibility around Project Management, whilst at the same time enabling the fast pace of change and empowerment that is integral to Agile.

AgilePM addresses the needs of management, project managers, team leaders, business analysts and the PMO working in an Agile environment, based on the DSDM® (Dynamic System Development Method) Agile Project Framework.

The Foundation course lays a solid foundation for managing projects using the DSDM Agile Project Framework and prepares candidates for the AgilePM Foundation certification.

The Practitioner course builds on the AgilePM Foundation course, providing additional depth of understanding, and prepares candidates for the AgilePM Practitioner certification exam.
