Agile Project Management (AgilePM®) Foundation and Practitioner courses aim to address the needs of those working in a project driven environment who want to be Agile.

This course 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.

It 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 also 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.
