What is this course?

Live Online Training

To overcome the challenges currently associated with attending in-person training, agil8 have adapted the delivery of this course into a live online training format with added focus on how to work using agile with remote team members.

Utilising live video, alongside online collaboration tools, we’re able to replicate the interactive nature of our face-to-face training within a virtual environment. As such, individuals can undertake this training from their home, or any other remote location.

 

Course Content
This is an accredited 4 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 4 day course comprises tuition towards the Foundation exam during days 1-3 and is aimed at those who want to become certified in Agile Project Management at Foundation level. The Practitioner course is extended by a day to include preparation for, and attendance at a Practitioner exam (leading to certification in Agile Project Management at Practitioner level).

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.
