Agile Project Management Foundation

What is this course?

This is an accredited 3 day course launched in 2011 by APMG and the DSDM Consortium to address the need to run projects in an Agile way. The course is equally divided between the theory behind Agile Project Management (AgilePM) and interactive practical experience of the techniques and disciplines involved. The 3 day course includes the Foundation exam for those who want to become certified in Agile Project Management at Foundation level.

Should I go for Foundation only, or Practitioner?
You should consider your reasons for going on this course and what you hope to achieve from it. All the teaching takes places during the first three days of the course, and the foundation exam is taken at the end of the third day. If you are wanting to take the Practitioner exam, you will spend the morning of the fourth day preparing for this paper. The Practitioner exam is taken after lunch on the fourth day.

Attending the first 3 days of the course and sitting the Foundation exam is sufficient if you are taking the course to improve your knowledge of project management in an agile context for example, or if you are about to start work on an agile project and need some training first. However, if you’re looking to improve your CV, get a promotion, win more contracts, demonstrate your skills to potential employers or clients, then the Practitioner course and exam is probably more suitable.

What will you learn?

The course will give delegates a practical understanding of how to use Agile behaviours and techniques at scale. Agile has grown rapidly in recent years and is now ‘mainstream’, but a lot of these successes are with small, co-located teams.

This course shows you how to be Agile at a larger scale by wrapping Agile Project Management disciplines around the delivery aspects of an Agile project. This allows you to ‘be agile’ in more complex environments where stricter governance or compliance is needed such as it is with most large organisations today.

By becoming certified, this course helps you to stay current within your own organisation and in today’s fast moving marketplace.
